Zivo gets season going in Evan Shipman


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Friday’s $100,000 Evan Shipman Stakes probably looked like a pretty good spot when trainer Gary Sciacca circled the race in the condition book for his outstanding New York-bred Saratoga Snacks. That is, until he picked up the overnight and saw that the competition would include the Grade 2 winner Zivo, who’ll finally launch his 2015 campaign in the 1 1/8-mile fixture for New York-breds ages 3 and up at Saratoga.
