SOLDIERS GUARD LEXINGTON TRACK. Lexington. Ky.. April 14. — At the request of the Executive Committee of the Kentucky Association, soldiers were stationed Friday at the local race course, where about 500 valuable thoroughbred horses are quartered, with more coming. The fires at Belmont Park and Essex Park caused the precaution to be taken. Only persons who can satisfy the guards that they belong on the premises will be admitted to the grounds after dork.
