He and Parke will leave for Lexington tomorrow. Parke may return to Havre de Crace sometime during the meeting to ride some of the Whitney racers in their stake engagements. Just now the lad is recovering from a setback caused by several boils. Henry McDaniel has old Exterminator in great condition. The son of McOee was on the track this morning bucking like a colt.
