Zito Reigns at the Spa

For you Triple Crown fans out there ... Birdstone, the horse that defeated Smarty Jones in the Belmont, won the 135th running of the Travers Stakes yesterday at Saratoga. It was Birdstone's first race since he won the third leg of the Triple Crown, but trainer Nick Zito apparently knew what he was doing in giving Birdstone an oddly long break from racing. The Zito-trained The Cliff's Edge placed, and Eddington finished third.
