The suspensions brought to a deee % case in which two Edmonton men and nine Jockeys were charged with implication in "fixing" a race at the Edmonton meeting last autumn. Those handed 10-year suspensions Monday were jockeys Stanley Connell, Ray Stewart, Eldon Arnold and Clifford Potts, while Jake Superstein and Mickey Fhillet of Edmonton were denied the privileges of the course on all tracks under the jurisdiction of the Prairie Thoroughbred Breeders and Racing Association for a similar period. At the annual meeting of the association in Winnipeg earlier this year jockeys James Schmied, E. J. Johnson, Joseph Carroll, John Sundquist and D. D. Kelly were suspended until the conclusion of the year 1952. The four jockeys and the two men whose cases were dealt with Monday did not appear before the special directors meeting although they had been invited to do so. The delay by the directors in making a final decision on the cases from Ihe date of an original indefinite suspension by presiding stewardjGeorge W. Schilling oh August 28, 1950 was for the purpose of gathering all available evidence in the case and to give those charged an opportunity to present a defense before the Prairie Thoroughbred Breeders and Racing Association.
