IRISH JOCKEYS CONTRACT Transferred to Powerful Stable of Richard Gore Aylin Rode Flower Vale. DUBL.IN, Ireland.STovember 20. A skillful and versatile Irish jockey, Charles Aylin, is to ride for the powerful Findon, England, stable of Richard Gore next season. Gore deals in both flat and jumping racers, and Aylin is good in both riding lines. He weighs about 120 pounds. Reginald Walker of Athboy, one of the most astute Irish owners and trainers, releases Aylin for Gore. Aylin recently rode a remarkable race on Flower Vale to win the Irish Cambridgeshire. Flower Vale is a gelding of weird antecedents, six years old, by Valens Flowerer, and was bred in Ireland by H. S. Gray. He held out so little promise when a two-year-old that, after he had run without success, he was sold for S35 to D. J. Power, and, failing to earn a bracket in that owners colors, he was passed on to P. Sheehan. Nor did the son of Valens score for him, and it was not until last season, when he was a five-year-old and had become the property of D. Foley, his present owner, that he secured his first bracket. A big, upstanding gelding, he required a lot of time before reaching the full extent of his powers.
