r l . : 1 j i 1 j [j English Jockey Club Explains By Special Correspondent NEWMARKET, England.— The relations between The Jockey Club and the Race-, horse Owners Association was made clear by Sir Humphrey de Trafford, senior stew-•■ ard of The Jockey Club, at a recent meet-i ing. Sir Humphrey pointed out that the words "recognized by The Jockey Club," reported to have been made in a speech by the vice-chairman of the Racehorse Own-; ers Association, might create a false im-j pression. The only bodies which The Jockey Club officially recognize are the turf con-1 trolling authorities of other countries. In a letter to the association on January 20, 1944. the stewards stated they had no objection to the formation of a properly constituted and representative owners association, and that it might supply the machinery for closer contact of The Jockey Club with owners with a view to facilitating the discussion of any problems that might arise.
