TOMMY BURNS TO RESUME RIDING. New York, July 11. — The veteran. Tommy Burns, is preparing to resume riding. Tommy has done little work in the saddle since his return from France, but he lacks a whole lot of being an old man. and ho has kept himself in excellent physical condition by much hard work. He docs not expect to experience much dUBculty in reducing to 103 or 104 pounds, and he vows that he will do better work than nine-tenths of the jockeys now in service. Burns was always quick at the barrier, and he says he has not forgotten the knack of getting away. If Burns doe* not change his mind and decide to remain in retirement he will be ready to accept mounts at Saratoga.
