DiVito Excited About Arlington Juveniles

Arlington Park.

Arlington-based trainer Jimmy DiVito has always had a reputation for being very good with 2-year-olds, but the 61-year-old Chicago-born conditioner could easily surpass his own reputation this season.

 

So far this summer at Arlington, DiVito has won with eight of his 13 juvenile starters and on Saturday he will saddle B Jock LLC’s morning line favorite Twelve Hundred in the Grade III Arlington-Washington Futurity and William Cox’s Ann of the Dance in the Grade III Arlington-Washington Lassie, where she has been pegged as the third choice in the early line.

 

Both Ann of the Dance and Twelve Hundred have made two starts in their respective careers, and both are undefeated going into their upcoming engagements this weekend.

 

“We’re ready to go with both of them,” DiVito said this earlier this week.  “Ann of the Dance worked five-eighths last Saturday in 1:03.60 and Twelve Hundred breezed three-quarters Sunday in 1:13.  All we have to do now is hope they both get good trips on Saturday.”

 

Trainers Tom Amoss, Manny Perez and John Haran are the other three conditioners along with DiVito who have horses entered in both the Futurity and the Lassie.

 

Amoss ships in from Kentucky with Jerry Namy’s Shared Property for the Futurity and Always Here Too for the Lassie.  Manny Perez has Sugar Daddy Stable’s Yorona in the Futurity and that same ownership’s Ville in the Lassie. John Haran has supplemented Eagle Valley Farm’s Priceless Shore to the Futurity and his own filly Coyote Breeze to the Lassie.
