Count Turf and Bold Eligible To Kent and Richards Stakes DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., May 22. — Count Turf, the Kentucky Derby winner, and Bold, the Preakness hero, are nominated for Delaware Parks Kent Stakes of June 23 and Leonard Richards Stakes of July 4. Since the pair may clash in the mile and a half Belmont Stakes of July-16, it would seem likely that the best chance for a Delaware meeting of the two classic winners would be in the Richards which, like the Kent, is a 5,000 event. The Richards, is at a mile and a furlong, while the Kent is at a mile and a sixteenth. All eight starters in the Preakness are eligible for either the Kent or Richards, or both. The same applies to nine Derby starters. Of the Preakness field, five are in both the Kent and Richards, -Bold, Counterpoint, Hall of Fame, Big Stretch and Knowitall. Alerted, Timely Reward and Repetoire axe Kent nominees. Other stars who did not go postward in the Derby or Preakness for various -reasons, may be seen in Delawares stakes. , :
