Foaled in 1950 by King's Counsel-Filly Direct, Countess Vivian was owned by Christy Hayes of Columbus, Ohio. It was as a three-year-old that she took her 1:59 mark. Later, Countess Vivian produced many good performers, including world champions Meadow Skipper 1:55.1, Countess Adios 1:57.3 and Tarport Count 1:59.3. Meadow Skipper went on to become one of the sport's all-time great sires.
