Miami Mile surface switch no problem for Grand Tito


Trainer Antonio Sano said there was never a question in his mind he would run Grand Tito in Saturday’s $100,000 Miami Mile Handicap at Calder, even after the race was switched from the turf to the dirt due to two days of heavy in the south Florida area. And Sano’s decision to keep his turf specialist in the race paid dividends after Grand Tito rallied from just off the pace to a three-quarter length victory over fellow longshot Midnight Cello.
