TWIN BROTHERS JOCKEYS Harold and Harry Hannah Under Contract to Mose Goldblatt — To Appear Soon. BOFISVILLE, Ky., May ■ If II Gold-blatt. Cincinnati turfman, has a four-year contract yet to run on the Hannah twins, Harold and Harry, who cannot be distin-guishe-d from one another unless differently attired. They look as much alike as two pe-as, as the saying goes, and wear the- same size shoes and clothing:. The lads are past 1C years of age and weigh 7! jKiunds each. Their home is in Greenup, Ky., just three miles from the Haceland track. Waiter Hannah, their father, first signed them up with the late horseman John Nichols, but at his death, a year after they had been in his employ, the parent entered into a contract with Mose Goldblatt for their services for five years. Goldblatt has had the lads a year and is giving them every chance to learn to be race riders unde-r the watchful eye of his trainer, Benny Walters. Benny is very fond of the young chaps, who. he says, are exemplary bovs. with good clean habits and industrious to a marked degree for boys of their age. Harry shows the most aptitude for the saddle, but Harold will also make a good rider, in the opinion of Benny Walters. They will be given a chance to demonstrate their ability in the near future.
