AMERICAN JOCKEYS IN AUSTRIA. The American jockey, Fred Taral, heads the list of winning riders on the Austro-Hungarian turf, he having up to September 22 ridden sixty-live winners. During the short meeting at Aienna, which ended on that date, Taral rode ten winners, among them being the victor .in the Jubilee Prize. Second on the list is the Hungarian rider, G. Jeraek, with fifty-three wins, while the other Americans to do well are II. Birkeuruth and Miles. Taral, Birkeuruth and Miles have all signed again for next season. J. II. Skeets Martin, who went to Austria to ride for Baron Rothschild under a two-year contract for a retainer of 0,000 a year, could not get along with his English trainer, owing to the hitters anti-American feeling. He has been paid off for the two" years and leaves at once for England. Harry Birkeuruth had an ugly looking fall September 21. It happened at the last turn of a two-mile Hat race, and Birkeuruth. was at the time in the middle of the bunch. It was a miracle that he got away with only a slight fracture of the collarbone.
