TWO IRISH JOCKEYS ARRIVE LEXINGTON, Ky., December 19. Two jockeys from Ireland, John Lambert, 105 pounds, and Michael Hanton, 120 pounds, have arrived in Lexington, seeking employment, having come from the other side by way of Boston. They probably will go to New Orleans. "Things are in such shape in Ireland as the result of the fighting that there is no certainty about racing," said Hanton. "So we decided to come over here and seek a chance for exercising work and an epportunity for riding in races." Hanton stated that he had had experience on steeplechase- courses as well as on the flat.
