LOOKING FOR TRIED RIDING MATERIAL NEW ORLEANS, La., February 11. Now is the time the big owners who campaign their stables on the eastern tracks are on the lookout for competent riders. The Jockey developments of the winter tracks are invariably watched with interest, and many a boy that has sprung into prominence here in former years has been grabbed up by some large stable before he has ceased to be an apprentice. This year promises to be no exception to the general rule. Already representatives of rich easterners are on the ground noting the work of the riders, and it will not be long before they will be commissioned to conclude arrangements for the acquisition of the contract of the rider that meets the requirements. Cliff Robinson of Toronto and Johnnie Mooncy of this city are the ones that are most favored for the big jobs in the east, and it would not be surprising to find that the contracts of both these riders had been secured by some easterner any day. Ed Moore, who brought out and developed Robinson, is holding the lads contract at a high figure, and the owner who wants him will have to bid high. George Phillips, who has Mooney under his wing, is also demanding a high price, for the boys contract. H. J. Burke, a Kentucky lad, and another development of the .winter season, Is another whose services are being sought.
