Winnick Enjoys Success 7 In Initial Turf Venture Chicagoan Wants to Assemble And Condition a Public Stable Theres a young Chicago businessman who has a hankering for horses and if he continues with the same success he enjoyed with Kathleen R, hes likely to wind up with a stable of some importance. Arnold Winnick, breeder of champion boxers, which he shows from coast to coast at the various kennel associations shows, taking home enough ribbons to -decorate his room, first developed a liking for the horse when he purchased a few to ride and show. He met with instant success as gait man and since that time his pleasure with hoises has grown until about two years ago when he entered the racing field as a thoroughbred owner. Since his induction into the sport his enthusiasm has been boundless arid according to his own admission a complete new world of thrills has opened up to him. Winnick takes great pride in conditioning his own horses and can be seen at the crack of dawn either ponying his charges around or "holding the watch to see what the early birds have in their make-up. He hopes some day to have a public stable to train. One of Winriicks most successful forays into the sport was his purchase of Kathleen R. from the redoubtable horseman, Hal Bishop. The mare was sold by Bishop to the Chicagoan for a very fair figure and Winnick proceeded to condition her according to his own ideas and then when ready, sent her out to win three consecutive races, all in handy style. It was in her last trip to the winners circle that Kathleen R. was claimed. Win-* nick now has Eternal Flirt and Petes Best in his string, but does not think it will be too long before others of importance will be under his care.
