Leading Handicap Stars Among Sussex Nominees List of 38 Includes First Eight To Finish in Recent Gallant Fox STANTON, Del., May 22.— A star-studded field looms for Delaware Parks 5,000 Sussex Handicap, to be run June 9, according to the list of 38 nominations for that mile and a quarter fixture announced today by racing secretary J. Gilbert Haus. For example, the first eight in the nine-horse field that met in the recent Gallant Fox Handicap at Jamaica, are engaged in the Sussex. The eight, in the order they finished, are Rokeby Stables County Delight, Isador Biebers Palestinian, Brookmeade Stables Greek Ship, T. G. Bensons Lotowhite, King Ranchs On the Mark, Gustave Rings Lone Eagle, Brandy wine Stables Cochise and Harry LaMontagnes Steel Blue. Other Sussex eligibles include such stalwarts as Mrs. Andy Schuttingers Ferd, G. D. Wideners Lights Up, P. A. Markeys Piet, Mrs. E. duPont Weirs Royal Governor, A. G- Vanderbilts Next Move, C. V. Whitneys Mr. Trouble, Mrs. L. Lazares Sheilas Reward, G.- H. Bostwicks Stunts, Brookmeades Why Not Now, Greentree Stables One Hitter, Tom Grays Oil Capitol, Mrs. W. M. Jeffords Adile and Post Card, King Ranchs Renew and numerous other good winners. County Delight could well be called the most improved horse of the young 1951 season. His Gallant Fox triumph followed closely1 upon his Dixie Handicap score at Pimlico, and the four-year-old son of Count Fleet, no ball of fire last year, apparently has "found himself." Cochise, who represents Delaware Parks president, Donald P. Ross, tired after setting the Gallant Fox pace to the head of the stretch under 126 pounds, but previously had defeated Ferd, County Delight and other stars in the Grey Lag Handicap. The galloping gray will be seeking a second straight victory in the Sussex. The reputations and accomplishments of the jother Sussex candidates mentioned above are too well known to need more telling. The Sussex is. expected to gross 9,400.
