Broad Rock Races.

--The two-mile-heat poststake, between Ward, Green and McDaniel, is expected to come off at 2 o'clock to-day if the weather is favorable, and will prove interesting to the lovers of the sports of the turf. Lady Blessington, the winner of the mile-heat stake, is the favorite in betting circles, and, from her handsome performances at her debut, is regarded as invincible at short distances. If she is fully herself to-day, she may win; but her competitors are good ones, and will give her work to-day.

To-morrow the big match between Oakland and Conductor will be decided.--Each horse has his favorites, and large sums are already staked on the result.
