One Counts Injury Reported To Be Only Stone Bruise DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 9. — Mrs. Walter: M. Jeffords One Count, who was reported to have gone amiss in his stunning triumph over Blue Man and others in Saturdays rich Belmont, is greatly improved this morning. Trainer Oscar White, in discussing the three-year-old, stated that the injury now appears to have been no more than a stone bruise, though X-rays have been taken as a precautionary measure. One Count, who, prior to his Belmont success, was third behind Blue Man and Jampol in the Preakness, is in both the 5,000 added Kent Stakes and the 7,500 added Leonard Richards Stakes. His handlers had no intention of running him in the Kent, but they are hopeful that he will come along in time to fulfill the Leonard Richards engagement. This race, incidentally, was won in 1950 by Mrs. Jeffords Post Card, a half-brother to One Count.
