J D ADKINS THE TRAINER OF A PROMINENT CANADIAN STABLE NO CANADIAN stable lias enjoyed a greater degree of prominence of Jate than that of H J Jlackenzie the Winnipeg capitalist in whose colors Buckhorn Helen IJarbee Jleltou Street and other wellknown thoroughbreds have been racing with distinction over various tracks of tlie United States Canada and Jlexlco during the vast year or two It Is only since J D Adkins known far and wide among racing folk as Canada Jack lias been in cliaige of Jlr Jlackcnzies racing interests that the stable has come into the prominence that it now com ¬ mands As might be inferred from the sobri ¬ quet that was bestowed upon him to distin ¬ guish him from tlie turfman of similar name in whose honor Barney Scbreiber named his great son of Sain and Hi Salado the trainer of the Jlackenzie stable is a compatriot of bis wealthy employer and patron He claims Toronto as his home and long before lie took charge of the Jlackenzie stable he had demonstrated his ability and skill as a trainer of the racing thoroughbred There are few racing centers in America where Canada Jack Is not known Of course the success which lie has achieved with the Jlackenzie horses has had the effect of bringing him into much greater prominence than he enjoyed during the days when he was training for various other owners on a more modest scale scaleThe The Jlackenzie horses xare now quartered at Louisville and are being prepared for the spring meetings on tlie Kentucky circuit It is proba ble tlirt at the conclusion of the Kentucky meetings they will be shipped to Canada to engage in the racing over the Canadian Hacing Associations courses during the summer They were raced with signal success at Juarez dur ¬ ing tlie winter and were among the first of the stables to return to Kentucky from that winter racing ground Trainer Adkins Is one of the comparatively few hainKers of thoroughbreds possessing the knack of sending horses to tlie post ready to do their best after a long period of idleness and it may be expected that the Jlackenzie stable will figure prominently in the winning list from the very inception of the Kentucky season Last year Adkins saddled twentysjx winners for his employer as against eleven tlie previous year It is entirely probable that his record for 19UJ will be even better than that of 1012 It is well understood that Jlr Mackenzie svands ready at all times to pay good prices for tbeproi er wirt of racing material and in view of the encouraging outlook for a general revival of the sport it would not be at all surprising should the Mackenzie stable bo further strengthened before tlie season Is far faradvanced advanced
