TRAINS JOCKEYS AS WELL AS HORSES. J. Simon Hcaly. who trains the horses bred and campaigned by Capt. Edward B. Caeantt, is one of the present-day trainers who still believes in developing riders as he develops his hor-es. and in the pas! t"ii years he has sent .eight jockeys to the races that had their lessons under him. They were not all stars, bet were riders of ability and knew bow to get the most out of their mounts. The jockeys that have lieen developed under the watchful eye of trainer Healy are Tommy Dartes, Mulligan. E. Sweeney. J. Moore. J. P. Ryan and Eddie Campbell, while Harvey Williams and aasna Stretch, who ride through the field, are also pupils of Healy. For the coming racing Campbell will do much of the riding for the Cnanatt stable, and Healy has another promising lightweight he will show in J. Howard Bernard, who has already shown ability under the Healy tuition. Jockeys are sometimes horn, but no one knows anything about them until same trainer develops their natural ability. Others are made, and it is the trainer who makes them. It would be well if some other trainers would follow the Healy example.
