May Reserve Count Turf For Belmont Engagement BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I., N. Y., June 6. — Owner J. J. Amiel stated today following Count Turfs score in the Polynesian that it was extremely doubtful if the Kentucky Derby winner would fulfill his engagement in the Peter Pan over the week-end. His main objective at this meeting is the Belmont and that mile and one-half offering will more than likely be his next start with jockey Conn McCreary in the saddle. Trainer Sol Rutchick said that John Gaver had asked for Conn McCrearys services for Greentree Stables Big Stretch in the Peter Tan. Gaver will be given an answer in the morning, probably favorable. Big Stretch again appeared to sulk when working with Banjoist this morniBg and his trainer has come to the conclusion that he may run more willingly for a "sit still, long rein," jockey of McCrearys type.
