ZITO GETS ZILCH IN 131ST KENTUCKY DERBY

The story had been horse trainer Nick Zito's five entries in the Kentucky Derby, among them the George Steinbrenner-owned Bellamy Road, considered the favorite by most horse flesh experts. But the 131st "Run For The Roses" nixed Nick's dreams, continued more of the same for Steinbrenner, who can't seem to win in Louisville (or with his Yankees this year either), and ended in a huge upset victory (the second bigget upset ever) by 50-1 longshot Giacomo with jockey Mike Smith aboard. The payout for a $2.00 "Win" ticket was a whopping $102.60.
