Delaware Notes DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 5. Robert Howell, who has shown excellent saddle form since being discharged from the Army, has returned from a visit to his home at Latonia, Ky. Jockey Euclid LeBlanc is due in this week to enter the employ of trainer E. H. Gaines. The latter has a large public stable under his care and usually garners his share of purses here. J. H. Schochs string has been depleted by two, with Supermont and Hard Cracker having been sent to the New Jersey farm of his owner. The Baylor Hickman string, numbering seven head, arrived from Kentucky and will be campaigned throughout the meeting. Trainer T. Wayt has transferred Sam Feinbergs The Killer and Watch Hill to nearby Sun View Farm. The Killer pulled up decidedly lame in his lone Maryland race and appeared badly in need of a rest. Apprentice William Cherry, who has been under contract to trainer Charles M. Feltner, has purchased his papers from that horseman. Cherry left for Saratoga Springs, where he will spend a short time with his family before returning to action. W. G. Jones, trainer of a stable of jumpers including Rouge Dragon and Mer-cator, checked in from Belmont Park to give his horses their final preps for the opening of Delaware Parks jumping season next Tuesday. Mandel B. Goffs Skytracer and Flint Maid, the former a starter in last Saturdays Brandywine Handicap, left for Monmouth Park under the care of trainer E. W. King.
