JACK ATKIN MAY GO SOUTH. When Herman R. Brandt ships Ills horses and those he is raying at Aqueduct for Barney Sehreiber to New Orleans for winter racing, Jack Atkln wilf probably go along. Tom McGrath will probably be the only one left behind. He will go into winter quarters at Stamford, Conn., at the close of the Aqueduct meeting. Jack Atkin has had his share of racing already this year and has developed a sulky disposition during the latter part of the season and deserves a rest, but Mr. Sehreiber, it is said, is keenly interested in having his great sire, Sain, keep ahead of Hastings in the list ot winning sires. He and Brandt arc of the opinion that Jack Atkin will win a few races at New Orleans before the close of the year, as the horse is still in his best sprinting form. Brandt will not race at Benning, going direct to New Orleans with the horses shortly after the close of the Queens County Jockey Club meeting. lie will endeavor to sign a jockey during the winter, as he feels that the Want of a regular rider for the stable during the past summer has been chiefly responsible for the failure to meet the expectations entertained for the stable last spring.
