.(''ACE' SIX Horses Run For These Boys Oklahoma and Kentucky Produce Star Jockeys of ' the Year. i 6Y WILLIAM HRAUCIIKK : NEA Service Sports Kdltor i The hard boots country of Ken-' tucky and the Oklahoma bad lands have produced this year two of the i most sensational young horse rid-, ers of the generation. i One is Henry Hand-Ridm' Uiloy,! a 17-year-old kid from a ranch near, Wetunko, who wears the kind of face that horses go for. The other,. Eugene James, a youth the same! age from Louisville, has booted i home mere than 130 winners in; five actual months of riding In; races. [ Riley leads the pack of American | Jocksys, with ICQ winning mourns up to the middle of December. Hc| Iiooted his first one home March C, 1 at Agua Callente.

Around the stnbles Ihero ore no higher words of praise to bestov, upon a boy. Those four words are the turf's accolade. The words mean that each of those young men are thoroughly understood by the thoroughbreds they ride.
