Fly Down: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:18]
After taking to the Oklahoma Training Track at 7:30 this morning with Jose Lezcano aboard, Travers prospect Fly Down drilled four furlongs in 48.40 seconds, handily, fourth-fastest of 26 workouts at the distance. "There were a lot of horses working over there this morning, so we went over earlier," said his trainer, Nick Zito. The Hall of Famer hopes Fly Down, winner of the Grade 2 Dwyer and runner-up in the Grade 1 Belmont, will have a cleaner trip than the one he experienced in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy, in which he finished fifth. "He's a terrific, consistent horse," said Zito. "I don't think he had a good post last time. A mile and a quarter is different, but that mile and eighth last time when he had post nine Jose did a good job of getting him over. But the next thing you know, nothing worked out for him."

2010 Dwyer (G2) - Fly Down [03:32]
Fly Downs last-to-first victory in the Grade 2, $200000 Dwyer on a blustery Saturday afternoon at Belmont Park may have earned the colt a shot at the Belmont Stakes. The 3-year-old son of Mineshaft barreled into the lead rounding the far turn and pulled clear to a six-length win over 3-5 favorite Drosselmeyer in the Dwyer, which in its new spot on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) calendar serves as a steppingstone to the 142nd running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 5. Trained by Hall of Famer Nick Zito, who also has Kentucky Derby runner-up Ice Box under consideration for the final leg of racings Triple Crown, Fly Down covered the 1 1/8th miles in 1:50.25 as he extended his record to three victories from five starts. Well see what happens in the next 30 days, said Zito, a two-time winner of the 1 ½ mile Belmont, by telephone. He puts a lot into his races. If he has a good month, if he rebounds from this, if hes OK, well look at the Belmont. Fly Down, purchased for $80000 by owner Richard C. Pell at the 2008 Keeneland September Sale, broke his maiden going 1 1/16th miles at Churchill Downs in his second start as a 2-year-old, and then won a 1 1/8th mile allowance at Gulfstream Park to launch his sophomore campaign in February. Fly Down next finished ninth after being steadied in the March 27 Louisiana Derby at the Fair Grounds. Weve always given him a nice break between races, said Pell, a money manager from New York.
