ANOTHER GOOD WORD FOR JOYNER. It has been known for some mouths past that Mr. Harry Whitneys trainer. Andrew .loyner. was due to return to his native country at the end of this season. The pending departure of this highly popular trainer has la-en all along regarded regretfully in racing circles, and as already reported in our columns. Mr. Joyner was entertained by a large numliei of his fellow trainers at the Newrnarket Subscription Rooms Club on Cesarewitch night, when the various items on the menu card were cleverly associated with the names of the best horses trained from time to time at Balaton Lodge. Although he has never elij iye l the satisfaction f f carrying off any of our classic events with otic of his eharges. Mr. Joyner has turned out the win-ii-rs of nianv important handicaps and weight -for-age races, and there is no doubt that but for the restrictions impos,.! on the national sport during war-time. Mr. Whitney would have continued to run some of his horses here as usual. Meanwhile, however, there has been a revival in the fortunes of racing in America, and it is but natural that the best animals at Balaton Lodge should be shipped back to the laud of their birth, and so for the time being we are to be deprived of the pleasure of seeing Mr. Whitneys F.ton blue mid brown jacket and the presence of Mr. and Mrs. Joyner ou our courses. There is every reason to believe, however, that our welcome visitors stay amongst us will lie repeated at no distant date, anil when Joyner does come back may lie bring with him a Derby wiuncr. — IjOiidou Spirting Life of October 1!».
