Pita to Start Two in Saturday’s Stallion Stakes
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (July 26, 2012) – A Florida Stallion Stakes rookie when saddling Hello Prince to an 11th-place finish in the 2011 Dr. Fager Stakes, trainer Daniel Pita returns with a pair of runners for Saturday’s opening day of the 2012 Stallion Stakes, sending out the Frank Gomez Memorial third-place finisher Billos Boy in this year’s Dr. Fager along with the debuting filly Talent N Passion in the Desert Vixen.
“He’s doing really well right now,” Pita said of Billos Boy. “I think he’s only going to get better with more distance. To be honest, I wish we were running further than six furlongs on Saturday; that’s how much I think added distance is going to help.”
