Thoagh he was suspended for six- of the twenly-Bevea racing days in January — because of his foul riding on Botssssn at Oakland January S— Walter Miller, the jockey champion of IMS, heads the list of winning riders for the first month of this year. He had 148 mounts during the month and won on S3 of them. This is a fraction better than 44 per cent, •horses in the money." 1 1 is best record for any clay during the month was four winners January is. John Cullman, who is riding at Ascot Iark. leads hem all in the matter of percentage. Hullmatt has been iu the saddle less frecpiently than any other of the- lirst twenty, but he is displaying his old time form and if he can keep it up he will have one ot the beat years of his career. Dave Nic-ol has lieen on a ten clays jaunt, returning to New Orleans only yesterday. Since he signed a contract with S. C. Hildretli. there has been some improvement in the riding of L. Williams. This colored boy is fond of his tipple, they say: but at Oakland there is a belief that Hildretli will succeed iu keeping the glass from his lips. J. Harris was riding with the best of them at Ascot Park until he got a rich-quick idea into his head and began peddling stable information to certain Los Angeles baadhssfe makers. R. F. Carman, to whom he- is under contract, got wind of the jockeys doings and promptly put him under suspension. Mr. Carman says he intends to keep him on the ground for a good lone spell, and he can afford to do it. M. lreston and It. McDaniel show epually wcdl for the month at Ascot Park.
