Trainer Robert J. Durso passed away at his home in Hallandale, Fla., on Wednesday morning following a short illness. The trainer of multiple graded winner Frisk Me Now was 68 years old.
Frisky Spider's seven-furlong workout in preparation for Saturday's $250,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. II) for 3-year-olds at Gulfstream Park had trainer Bob Durso excited Sunday morning.
Trainer Bob Durso said he will start his undefeated Frisky Spider in either the Hutcheson or the Fountain of Youth, while Nick Zito is considering those races and allowances for Birdstone, Eurosilver, and The Cliff's Edge.
Frisky Spider, an up-and-coming colt on the 3-year-old South Florida trail, remained undefeated in three starts with a conditioned allowance victory Sunday at Gulfstream Park.
