Morning Line Eyes Met Mile

Newly minted Grade 1 winner Morning Line came out of the 111th Carter Handicap in good shape, Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito said Sunday morning, reached by telephone in Florida. The 4-year-old son of Tiznow beat Apriority by 1½ lengths in the seven-furlong race, and won in a time of 1:21.46.

 

Next stop for Morning Line is the 119th running of the Grade 1, $500,000 Metropolitan Handicap on May 30 at Belmont Park.

 

“That horse had a two-month layoff since the Donn, and the next start will be in seven weeks,” Zito said. “He was well-deserving in getting the Grade 1.”
