1 Notes From Along the Banks of Stoner Creek PARIS, Ky., June 25. Buyers at the 1955 Keeneland Summer Sales next month will find the Stoner Creek Stud consignment rather unique in that it includes the only Count Fleet colts to be offered at the three-day vendue; the only son of Cita-, tion; the only Nasrullah filly, and the only offspring of Migoli. Stoner Creeks two Count Fleet colts are a chestnut out of War Admirals half sister, Lydia, and a brown from Misty Isle, an excellent race mare and dam of the 00,000 winner Cosmic Missile. The lone Keeneland colt by Citation is out of the young stakes-producer Banish, dam, of Count Cain and a half sister of Cosmic Bomb. The miss by Nasrullah is bred on the same pattern as Lea Lane by the sire of Nashua, Noor, etc., but out of a daughter of Bull Lea. The Migoli was conceived in England, where his sire stands. He is out of Drama n an imported stakes -winning Nearco mare from the family of Khaled. Migoli was one of the best middle-distance runners ever to carry the silks of the Aga Khan. He won the Eclipse Stakes, beating Tudor Minstrel, and the Champion Stakes over Nirgal as a three-year-old; and the following year won Frances greatest race, the Prix de lArc de Triomphe.
