New York Watch: Gallant Fields

With talented 3-year-olds Ice Box, Fly Down, Jackson Bend, Miner's Reserve, and Our Dark Knight in his barn, Nick Zito is poised to make some noise in the second half of 2010. And following today's fourth race at Belmont Park, you can add Gallant Fields to the list of sharp Zito sophomores. Making the second start of his career on a muggy day at Belmont Park, Gallant Fields pressed the pace in the two path through a half in a testing 45.37, then ran away from his rivals under a drive in the stretch to win by a widening 8¼ lengths with Jose Lezcano aboard. "I was very, very happy with [Gallant Fields' performance]," said Zito, who trains the son of Smarty Jones on behalf of Paul Braverman and Suffolk Downs' majority owner Richard Fields. "We take our time with them, and sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't. He's a big horse, and from time to time he had what we call 'interruptions.'"
