ENGLISH STIRRED UP OVER FOUL RIDING Racing officials in England are as much pestered by rough riding jockeys as are the racing ollicials of this country But it is expected in the case of the Derby Oaks St Leger and other highly impor ¬ tant races that the jockeys shall ride with scrupu ¬ lous fairness and the jockeys respect this expecta ¬ tion and ride to its requirements That this is so js attested by the fact that there has been no disqualification since the imposter Running Hein was so treatd subsequent to his finishing first In the Derby of 1S44 And in that case the disqualifi ¬ cation wis not for foul riding and did not take place until long after the day of the race when a lung investigation conducted under the direction f Lord George Bentiuck disclosed the fact that i he horse which had finished first was not the threeyearold Running Hein but a fouryearold which had been fraudulently substituted It can therefore be easily perceived why English racing society from King George down considers the dis qualilication of CVagauour as a distinctly shocking occurence and it will not IK at all surprising if Johnny Heirs career as a jo kcy is brought to a permanent close by the revocation of his license to ride in England which would mean in all other rac ¬ ing countries as well wellMeantime Meantime the Jockey Club has decided to tackle the ticklish problem of effacing rough riding from racing and an Associated Press dispatch of yester ¬ day from London says A motion has been put down for discussion at the annual meeting of the Jockey Club on June Hi proposing new rules in Hiding more severe penalties on jockeys for foul riding such as characterized yesterdays race raceThe The public feeling is that the stewards of the Jockey Club who are meeting today to discuss the matter should take strong action in regard to Johnny Heilts tactics tacticsTho Tho stewards today suspended for the rcmalnder of the Epsom meeting the jockey Huxley who was responsible for the accident In the race following the Derby when the horse Felizardo was killed
