Morning Line, Dialed In gearing up for Saratoga

Dialed In, Holy Bul top story
Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito's pair of Grade 1 winners, Morning Line and Dialed In, are gearing up for starts during the 2011 Saratoga Race Course meet.

On Thursday, Morning Line, a 4-year-old son of Tiznow, breezed five furlongs in 1:01.77 over the Saratoga training track, the fastest of four works at the distance.

"The work was very good," said Zito. "He looked super and we were very happy."

Morning Line, winner of this year's Grade 1 Carter Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack on Wood Memorial Day, April 9, is getting ready for a start in the Grade 1, $750,000 Whitney Handicap at Saratoga on Saturday, August 6. The 1 1/8-mile Whitney distance is one at which the colt has already achieved graded glory, taking last year's Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby by a neck.

On Saturday at Saratoga, Dialed In, winner of this year's Grade 1 Florida Derby on April 3, is expected to have his first official workout since a fourth-place finish in the Grade 1 Preakness on May 21.

According to Zito, the 3-year-old Mineshaft colt's summer campaign will include starts in the Grade 2, $500,000 Jim Dandy in Saturday, July 30 and the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on Saturday, August 27, both at Saratoga.

I still Love Dialed In. Think we will see some GREAT races from him!!
Don't sell Zito short in the Travers. He's number one trainer in the country in my mind.
