It's been clear for weeks now that trainer Nick Zito feels something different for his potential Derby favorite, Dialed In. What's behind Zito's unique affinity for the horse?
“There are certain things this horse has done, starting from Mark Johnson's race call from where he said, 'How did Dialed In win?' ” Zito said. “Then when we scratched him (in a January race at Gulfstream Park) and we came right back and he won the Holy Bull (Stakes). He's just a special horse. I love this horse. You can just see something about him.
I shouldn't feel this way; I love all of my horses. I guess it's just like a coach who likes a particular player.”
