OWNERS IDEAS OFTEN HINDER TRAINER Owners ideas as to how horses should Iks treated in races often mean trouble for those who train thein. Some horses do not require either whip or spur, but with others the use of both is necessary. Touching on this an English writer cites the case of the late James Ryan, a well-known Newmarket trainer, who. among other imixirtant winners, prepared Springfield, says that the late Mr. H. J. Hotildsworth, for whom Ryan trained nearly fifty vears. was opposed to both whip and spur. In VonscquencM some of Mr. llouldsworths horses simplv loafed in their races, and then, when they went into other ownership, where punishment was not barred, showed vastly improved form. This occasionally caused Ryans ability as a trainer to 1m questioned" by those who were unaware of the disadvantage under which he tailored in having to treat all Mr. Hoiildsworths horses in the same fashion, whether they were sluggards or free goers.
