Field Set For Saturday's Belmont Stakes

Nick Zito is the trainer for two of the favorites in the final leg of the Triple Crown -- Ice Box and Fly Down.

Zito would prefer to fly under the radar, but isn't complaining about his position this time.

"You know what they say, great expectations can bring great disappointments," he said this week. "We're grateful we have these two good horses. It's better than not having them. We've had success at the mile and a half, so I hope that continues."

Without Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver or Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky this Belmont has lost a lot of its appeal.
