sensation has been caused in English turf circles by the announcement that two of the most prominent English jockeys Fred Rickaby and Otto Madden have been refused licenses by the stewards of the Jockey Club to ride during the forthcoming season and also that Rickaby has been warned off the Newmarket Heath The cause is stated to be that the pair have been associating with bad char ¬ acters on the turf their names being brought into the Goudie case indirectly and also that they are guilty of offenses under the rules of racing racingMadden Madden who headed the winning jockey list last year rode for Marsh Rickaby who was first horse ¬ man for Lambtons stable frequently had a mount on the horses of Lord Durham one of the stewards of the Jockey Club ClubSeveral Several other English jockeys have been severely reprimanded Up to the present the list of jockeys who received licenses for the coming season does not include Tod Sloan but that he has strong pros ¬ pects of getting a
