Gold Cup Bullet for Fly Down

Fly Down, set to make his first start against older horses on Saturday in the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, worked four furlongs yesterday at Saratoga over the Oklahoma Training Track in 46.25, the quickest of 25 moves at the distance.

 

“It was very good,” said his Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito, who yesterday picked up his third victory in the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby with Morning Line, an allowance winner at Saratoga. “We got what we were looking for.”

 

Owned by Robert LaPenta, Fly Down won the Grade 2 Dwyer before going on to finish second in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes. The son of Mineshaft was fifth in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy before being nosed out by Afleet Express when second in the Grade 1 Travers in his most recent outing.

 

Jackson Bend, also trained by Zito for LaPenta, put in a 48.40 four-furlong breeze at Belmont Sunday morning. The trainer said he has “no immediate plans” for the colt, who was last seen finishing fifth in the Grade 3 Pegasus at Monmouth Park in June.
