County Delights Success Story LEXINGTON, Ky., May 20. — Stories are many about the "kid from the other side of the tracks" who made good. Heres one about the "rich kid" who made a success. County Delight, the hero of this story, sold for 8,000 to iPaul Mellon when his breeder, .Mrs. John D. Hertz, sent the-son of Count Fleet into the Keeneland sales ring as a yearling in 1948. Since then, the colt has earned 84,835 in the Rokey Stable colors of his owner. The prospects are good that his bank account will be increased still more this year. The Count Fleet racer not only has been made eligible for many rich American stakes, but also has been named for the King George TV and Queen Elizabeth Stakes to be run at Ascot, England, July 19.
