Prominent owner Frank Calabrese, who earlier this year dismissed Kirk Ziadie as his South Florida trainer, has retained Michael Petro to oversee his 40-horse stable in the Sunshine State.
Not Abroad and his jockey, Nick Petro, took advantage of an opening along the rail and won the $142,500 Maryland Million Classic Stakes Oct. 6 at Laurel Park.
Tim Cunningham's Ironton wrested the lead down the backstretch in the $75,000 Northern Dancer Stakes for 3-year-old Maryland breds and held it with a nose victory at the wire.
