EPINARDS RIDER RETURNS Jockey Everett Haynes Declares Sensational French Colt Is Second Man o War. NEW YORK, N. Y., December 5. "Epinard is the speediest horse I have ever ridden. He is a second Man o War." So declared jockey Everett Haynes on his return to America for a winter sojourn at Jamaica after a successful season in France. Haynes is under contract to Eugene LeigTi, trainer for Pierre Wertheimer, owner of ths sensational French two-year-old. The c jit has won his last six races and has demonstrated exceptional form and unquestiont 1 bottom. He was regarded as the most promising juvenile in the last season in Fram . Haynes has ridden the colt in all of 1 .3 engagements against the best of his division in France. Unfortunately his three-year-old status will be hard to determine, as all of the leading French stakes had closed when the colt began to show his true form. Epinards dam, Epine Blanche, was acquired by Wertheimer durjng the late war. In 1919 he sent her to his brothers stud, where she was bred to Badajos, by Gost Selected, by Raeburn. Epinard was the result of the mating. White Thorn, dam of Epine Blanche, was bred to Rock Sand at August Belmonts Nursery Stud in Kentucky and was shipped to France in 1912. She foaled Epine Blanche the following season.
