Jewish owners, riders, trainers and
handlers—are encountered in un
expected numbers on the thor
oughbred racing scene. More than
that, Jews play an important part
of the racing picture in this coun
try. For example, it is not gener
ally known that the jockey who
established a record for riding
winners in a season, which never
has been remotely approached,
was a Jewish lad from Brooklyn.
His name was Walter Miller and
for two spectacular years the
most successful rider who ever
booted a horse down the stretch.
All this was long ago—l9o6 to be
exact. Harry Wakeoff won a $60,-
000 race in 1925 at Tia Juana. The
Renick brothers Sammy and
Joey are top-notchers today
along with Ira Hanford, Charley
Litzenberger and Bobby Merrit.
Not only do Jewish lads ride
winning horses, but Jews also get
horses into winning condition.
Hirsch Jacobs, a pigeon fancier
before he turned his attention to
horses, was the leading trainer in
America for the first nine years
of the past decade. Unlike most
famous trainers, Hirsch is not pre
sented with hand - picked, ready
made champions. He works for the
small operators who are at a se
vere disadvantage contesting
against millionaire owners for
Max Hirsch, who developed the
mighty Sarazen and trainer of
millionaire strings for many years,
seems to have done a good job of
communicating his trade secrets
to his children, Mary and Buddy.
Mary Hirsch was the first woman
to be granted a trainer’s license
by the New York Jockey Club and
Buddy is recognized as one of the
more gifted conditioners of horses
among the younger generation . . .
The Western division of Marry
Payne Whitney’s stable once was
in charge of the Goldblatts, Mose
and Art, and the Lowenstein bro
thers, Mose and Jake, trained in
the same section with more than
The colors of Jewish sportsmen
have been carried to victory in
most of the important classics of
racing. Benjamin Block was the
owner of Morvich, undefeated as
a two year old and winner of the
Kentucky Derby in 1922. Another
Jew, John D. Hertz, president of
the Arlington Track Park in Chi
cago, won the Derby with Reigh
Count in 1928. The champion filly
Anita Peabody was a Hertz en
try when she won the $91,790 Fu
turity in 1927 with Reigh Count

“Rescue of the victims of oppression is an inseparable part of the
democracies’ struggle against the aggressors’’—this principle was ac
cepted and acted upon by the Annual Convention of the Hebrew Shel
tering and Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), recently held in New York
City, when it voted a $1,000,000 budget for the 1941 “Rescue Through
Emigration" activities of the Society.
Masada and Amity Clubs Split Two Games
In Jewish Community Softball League
The Masada and Amity Clubs
divided a double-header in the on
ly games scheduled for last week

League. The Masada team won

by a 5-3 score.
Mizrahi, Surasky and M. Cohen
led the Masada boys at bat in the
initial affair, each slugging out
two hits, while Abe Fraden cap

The Schwartz stable won the Der

horse was trained by a Jewish
handler and booted home by Ira
Hanford . . . the first time in Der

touts around the track claimed
that this made Bold Venture, the
horse, a kosher product. . .
