■ King Hairan to Go In Delaware Valley Sprint Specialist Probable Highweight; May Face Nine At Garden State Saturday GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 7. — As many as 10 sprint specialists may battle it out in Saturdays 5,000 added Delaware Valley Stakes at Garden State Park. The six-furlong fixture is exclusively for three-year-olds. Kin Hairan has arrived from New York for this engagement and could be the starting highweight of the field. The Kings Stride colt,, property of Leo Edwards and Harry B. Massey, carried his speed to victory in the Swift and received the minor awards of the Jamaica and Hibiscus. During his juvenile campaign King Hairan racked up nine wins, eight in stakes competition. Of the other candidates on the grounds P and W Stables Lucky George. Harford Stables Princeton, William C. Helis Jr.s True Verdict or Pearl Prince, Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Bakht, John S. Kellys Wassail and R. T. Cur leys Supper Money are considered definite starters. Lucky George, winner of the De Soto, also won the 0,000 Lancaster Purse here, which served as a trial for the Delaware Valley. In this affair he whipped six potential rivals he may face Saturday. Won Three of Six Starts in 1956 Princeton finished second in the "trial," but did not have the best of racing luck and may have been best. This was the second start of the season for the high-priced son of Hill Prince, who last year won three of his six starts. Pearl Prince and True Verdict each have won this semester and their training moves would indicate sharp efforts in the immediate offing. Bakht is training especially for the Delaware Valley and flashed six furlongs in 1:13 in his latest work. Supper Money also has dead aim on the Saturday special and in the Jamaica both set and forced the pace most of the trip. Two unknown quantities at the moment are Woodland Farms High Sparkle and Carolyn K. Stables Pro-Brandy. High Sparkle has been particularly impressive in morning works, but has been extended to a mile by trainer Harry Wells, which would seem to indicate he may favor the longer journey in the nine -furlong 0,000 added Jersey Stakes on May 25. Pro-Brandy is being carefully brought around by trainer Dave Emery. As yet Emery has made no definite decision on the status of the son of Double Brandy. There are others on the grounds also listed in the doubtful category, but which cannot be completely counted out. In this group are Puckety Farms Jaunty John, G. F. Stricklands Balaklava II., William Hal Bishops Kid, Jr., Bohemia Stables Pom-miny, Brookfield Farms Irate, E. H. Woods Roman Request and Raritan Stables Base Runner.
