Lucky Dip, Missile to Start In Leonard Richards Stakes BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I., N. Y., June 5. Trainer Woody Stephens said today that he was shipping Cain Hoy Stables Lucky Dip and John A. Morris Missile to Delaware to compete" in Saturdays Leonard Richards Stakes. If Lucky" Dip, winner of last Saturdays Kent Stakes, runs well, he will start back in the 00,000 Belmont Stakes on June 15, Stephens said, adding that Missile would not start in the mile and a half classic. Elliott Burch, assistant to his father Preston Burch, said there was an outside chance that Brookmeade Stables Oligarchy would start in the Belmont, the hock that he injured working on a muddy track in New Jersey having responded to treatment. Lenny Hunt, trainer of Leo Edwards King Hairan, said that the colt had not suffered bucked shins as was reported to the press box after his last race. He will start in the Select Stakes at Monmouth next out.
