JACK ATKIN ENFORCING RECOGNITION As becomes a young stallion of the line of St. Simon. Barney Schreibers Jack Atkin is beginning to assert himself as a sire, through the excellent racing of his progeny this spring. Charlie Ley-decker. Sewell Combs and Brownie McDawell have already scored for him in real race horse fashion and are a trio of three-year-olds to Is- proud of. The owner of Sewell Combs holds that his chance of winning the Kentucky Derby is not one to be overlooked. Since lie is a man of racing experience and wisdom, his opinion is to lie viewed with re-siiect. Another Jack Atkin three-year old racing with distinction, is George Starr, which has a clean sheet of three starts and three victories at Havre de Grace, all of which he won in a way suggestive of a genuine chance to win the Preakness Stakes. Besides these already proved good three-year-olds, rumor speaks flatteringly of the promise of a number of Jack Atkin two-year-olds, which will be making their nopearancc in racing presently. There is no reason in the world why Jack Atkiu should not prove one of the greatest sires of his time. A grand race horse himself, with his veins filled with the blood of conquering race horses, he has every possibility of transmitting all the qualities breeders are constantly seeking. . *-— ■
