Unable to Get Suitable Jockey for Your Host BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I., N. Y„ May 13. — William Goetz, owner of Your Host,, said today that the Derby favorite had been withdrawn from the Withers when they were unable to obtain the services of Eddie Arcaro. "We would have run if Guerin had been available," Goetz said, "but we didnt want to use someone we didnt know." Your Host will be pointed for next Saturdays Preakness, though no rider has yet been obtained for the Pimlico classic and Goetz said that it is doubtful if Johnny Longden will be able to come east for the race. It was widely rumored around Belmont Park that Your Host had gone amiss and would be returned to California, but Goetz and trainer Harry Daniels both said flatly that there is nothing wrong with the son of Alibhai and that he would defnitely be sent to Pimlico next week.
