LYKE FAILS TO DISPLACE ROBINSON One of the interesting incidents of the closing days of the 1918 racing was -the effort of jockey L. Lyke to regain the leadership of the American riders, which lie held for the greater part of the year and lost because he was enjoying a vacation while Robinson continued riding throughout the Jefferson Park meeting. After Robinson had readied the coveted goal. Lyke hurried to New Orleans, but too late to regain his lost laurels. He resumed riding on Monday and rode one winner, while Robinson landed two. Then Robinson cinched the title on Tuesday when he piloted three to Lykes one. The records of the two for the year are as follows: Jockey. Mts. 1st. 2d. 3d. Unp. P.C. F. Robinson 804 185 140 10S 431 .21 L. Lyke .705 ISO 123 I0S 354 .24
