While most of the attention surrounding last Saturday’s Fountain of Youth Stakes at Florida’s Gulfstream Park has been surrounding the race’s bizarre finish there’s another plotline that has gone unnoticed. Veteran trainer Nick Zito is still alive as he seeks his third Kentucky Derby title thanks to a late push by 63-1 longshot Frammento. Frammento…

Upstart Burnt by Bizarre Fountain of Youth Finish
