Saturday, August 13 1757

At home all day… At work in my garden and sawing of wood part of the day. In the evening read part of The Universal Magazine for July. This day the Subscription Plate of £50 was run for on Lewes Downs when 4 horses started; viz., Lord Eglinton’s bay horse Nothing, Robert Smith’s black mare Frolic, Mr Dye’s bay horse Looby, and George Rogers Esq’s grey mare (or hermaphrodite) Chastity. It was won by Chastity, she winning the two first heats. The two first were distanced and the heats were very good between the other two.
