HORSES JACK JOYNER IS TRAINING Best Blood of England in the George D. Widener Youngsters in His Charge. NEW YORK. N. Y., March S. A. J. Joyner, who has presided over the G. D. Widener and the Oak Itidge stables ever since lie returned from England several years ago, when tiie war put the lid on racing to some extent in that country, has seventeen horses in training for the coming season, fourteen of which are the property of G. D. Widener, and tiiree two-year-olds belonging to the Oak Ridge Stable, owned by Thomas Fortune Ryan. Of the older horses Mr. Joyner has but six in the Widener string, with eight two-year-olds, some of them of the choicest English lineage, the blood of Orby, Royal Realm, Black Jester, Troutbeck and Prince Palatine, being represented. These foreign youngsters were unquestionably carefully selected, Mr. Joyner being well acquainted with the finest English bloodstock. The remainder are by the American sires Garry Herrmann and Uncle. So far as the breediug of all the youngsters is concerned it is choice. Whether they will live up to the ex-ix-ctations of their trainer remains to be seen. There are but three fillies among them, Mr. Joyner being more partial to colts, judging from the selections. There is but one mare in the stable, that Iwiiig Rose dOr, and nine geldings. It is noticeable that the three three-year-olds Kno-iie-Shec. Pictor and Mistaki. are practically newcomers, not having been listed with the starters of last year. All are geldings, hence it is possible they showed lad traits at. some time or other, making operation necessary. Of the older horses the string is headed h.v Lnnius, which gave great promise as a two-year old. but went wrong early last year, only starting in four raws, winning his first start at Pimlico, an overnight handicap,, from Flags and Johren. After that lie failed in his remaining three starts, and was subsequently retired for the year. That he is coming around is evidenced by his being named in all the desirable stakes to be run next spring. Another promising gelding in the string is Abadane, width won two races iu the early spring and was retired soon afterward, owing to some ailment. Rose dOr also helped to pay the stable expenses, and will no doubt do so again. What Mr. Jpyner has "I his sleeve in Kno-ne-Shee, Pictor and Mistake is yet to be disclosed. His two-year-olds, on appear-anccf, are quite up to the average and may be better than the usual crop. Following is the list or horses in the hands of Mr. Joyner: Property of G. D. Widener.
