Two-time Derby winner Nick Zito returns with the Twin Spires on Saturday with two possible entries, including Florida Derby winner Ice Box.
In 1991, a Zito-trained entry won the Roses after finishing second in the Florida Derby-- Strike the Gold.
"He kind of trains like him, acts like him," said Zito. "... I like his chances, I really do."
Jose Lezcano is expected to take the mount of the chestnut Pulpit colt owned by Robert LaPenta.
