WINN SEVERS EASTERN CONNECTIONS Will Conduct Juarez Racing If Any Takes Place There Next Winter NEW YORK N Y March 23 Col Mat Winn arrived here yesterday to look after his eastern affairs before moving to Kentucky with his family In the future his whole attention will be devoted to Kentucky racing He will still retain his direc ¬ torships in the institutions hereabouts and retain his financial interests especially at Laurel at the suggestion and request of the majority stockholders which includes Price McKinney James Butler George W I ft and Tlios Monahan MonahanWhile While I regret having to resign from tlie man ¬ agement of Laurel I could not In all fairness to those who undertook the Kentucky enterprise held the managerial office at two institutions which will conflict said Mr Winn My sole object is to do the best I can at all times for the en couragpment Jft racing and its welfare no matter when or for whom x r where and for that reason I shall only be too willing to advise and work for better results whfii I can be of service I as well as others believe that the new move in Ken ¬ tucky will be of great benefit to the turf and breeding industry not only in Kentucky but wherever racing is conducted To give up the management of Laurel touches a tender chord for Laurel was an institution in which I took much pride Empire City appealed to me also on account of its associations and the fact that it was built up after a hard struggle to its present prominence prominenceWhile While I fehall be iu Kentucky most of the time during the racing season it is more than probable I shall return here in July and August to take in the Empire City and Saratoga meetings as a sort of vacation Regarding Juarez that track will be one of the subjects under consideration this week In fact Mr McKiuney and others concerned are now in consultation about racing there next winter but nothing definite has been decided upon Much depends upon the conditions in Mexico at that time I shall be in a position to give out a statement in regard to Juarez later in the season It all depends upon the national situation as the time approaches approachesI I cannot sly at the present time whether there will be any material changes in tlie conduct of the Kentucky meetings as the new institution is in its infancy but whatever changes there are will be in the interest of the turf the thoroughbred and its patrons
