Ice Box headed to Haskell

Ice Box, who finished a troubled second to Super Saver in the Kentucky Derby, will get a chance to avenge that loss when the two meet again in the $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on Aug. 1.

Trainer Nick Zito confirmed Tuesday that Ice Box would make his next start in the Haskell, while Fly Down, Zito's other top 3-year-old, would make his next start in the $500,000 Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga on July 31.

"I feel that's the best way to go," Zito said Tuesday morning on the Saratoga backstretch. "Monmouth's track is playing [toward] closers, and Ice Box comes from behind. The turns are pretty sharp there, and Fly Down would be better off here; he's a longer horse, a bigger horse." Read More
