JOCKEYS AT THE TRACKS [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
JOCKEYS AT THE TRACKS Although the bad state of the tracks at Morphettville prevented trainers from work ing their horses as they should have liked on Tuesday morning. Yet It was pleasing to note that there were sufficient jockeys in at tendance to ride if their services had been required-. Frequently during the past season trainers have been troubled because of the scarcity of jockeys present to ride work, with the result that they have had to wait until other, horses had finished their morning's task be fore they could secure the services of anyone suitable to exercise their team. At Victoria Park the position has been dif ferent, and trainers at the old course have had on need to complain.
