FLASHY From Page 11 Count has a career record of 29 victories, 24 seconds and 19 thirds from a total of 114 starts. Schmaus purchased the Rollin Count-Yourmount gelding privately from Chester I. Soule and turned him over to Anna Kent to train. "His knees weren't closed enough to start him as a 2-year- old", Mrs. Kent stated, "so we just turned him out until his 3- year-old year. He really wasn't much trouble", the Hagerstown, Md., born trainer continued. "Flash learned quickly and he had a good disposition". A break down of Flashy Count's record shows that he won 10 races at Charles Town, nine at Shenandoah Downs, eight at Penn National and two at Timonium. He was very versatile, win- ning anything from 4/ furlongs to one mile while being handled by 26 different jockeys. Evaristo Gustines scored eight victories on him while Larry Dupuy and Phil Grove won four each with the other 13 triumphs being handled by several different riders. After his maiden victory in 1971 he won three claiming tests, including the first $25,000 claiming race ever run at Penn National and 25 allowance races. Schmaus, who worked for Western Union until the office in Hagerstown, Md., was closed, kinks back over the racing career of Flashy Count as one of many happy moments. "He has beaten such horses as Sub Call, Rollicking, Jiva Coolit Delay, Trico O Erin, Glad Ap- peal, Rough Powder and Piping Peer, all of whom won stakes during their time", the Funkstown, Md., resident said with smile. "He turned out to be a very big surprise", he continued, "You hope for a good horse when you get into this game but you very seldom find one and I was lucky enough to get a good one on my first try". "I have been lucky with Flash but I also realize that all horses are not like him, just look at some of the others I have had", he chuckled. Flashy Count has not had many setbacks during his career. His only major one came in his 5-year-old season. "He had beaten Careful Ken in a han- dicap and after going to the test barn he showed up lame in one of his feet. He missed three months", Mrs. Kent said. In looking to his return to action this year, Mrs. Kent commented, "He should be ready before too long. I let up on him every winter because I believe every horse needs a rest. It's done him worlds of good over the years". "We took 'it slow with him. Many Rollin County's have been good in their 2-year-old seasons but then developed knee i problems. I think it must be in the breeding but he (Rollin Count) has had many good runners and the ones that did not .start too soon seemed to last longer. I think too many 2-year- olds are rushed and I told John that I wanted to take my time with Flash". As Schmaus looks to the 1978 debut of Flashy Count he compares the success of Flashy Count to that of the fan who goes to the races for the first time and hits the $20,000 payoff. "You hit it big in your first trip to the races and you keep thinking there will always be another big one. Well as a horse owner it's the same way. You get lucky with your first horse and you keep looking for the next one to Dodge Diplomat Medallion four-door. When it comes to cars to buy or lease, nobody seems to have more to choose from than your nearby Dodge Dealer. That's because he has a complete lineup of handsome and practical Aspens, classy Diplomats, exciting Magnum XEs, family-sized Monacos, and nifty little Colts. Cars that offer the comfort, style, performance, and value you've come to expect from Dodge. So what are you waiting for? See the man who has the cars that have got it all.

"When I went looking for a horse the Rollin Count's were starting to run good and for the price I thought I might have something that could run a lit- tle", Schmans said as he looked over the Daily Racing Form before a recent evening's program. I feel I have been extremely lucky, good horses don't come along every day and when you get one for that price, $700, and he runs like this, things are just going right". Flashy Count has passed the $100,000 mark in seven years of racing and is expected to add to that when he returns to action in the near future. Many horses which have brought a much greater selling price have never earned their way out. Flashy Count is what you would refer to as a popular song once said "A Mi)lion Dollar Baby In a Five- and-Ten Cent Store".
