Zito Troika Nearing RacesTrainer Nick Zito's trio of 3-year-old stars, Birdstone, Eurosilver and The Cliff's Edge, all remain on target for races following workouts over the weekend at Palm Meadows Training Center. Birdstone, who won the Champagne Stakes last October, worked five furlongs in 1:02 Saturday as did Lane's End Breeders' Futurity (gr. II) winner Eurosilver. The Cliff's Edge breezed the same distance in 1:01 2/5. Zito continues to remain noncommittal about their initial starts this year, but is aware the clock is ticking. "Everybody is fine and they all look good," said Zito. "Now that we're approaching February hopefully we'll find a way to get them all started."In addition to the Hutcheson and Fountain of Youth, Zito is looking for allowance races as potential 2004 bows.
