John Clay: Oaks-winning owner enjoys big day for 'a little guy'

Ed Stanco is not the type of big-name owner often associated with trainer Todd Pletcher. But when the two paired up to win the Kentucky Oaks with Princess of Sylmar at Churchill Downs on Friday, none of that mattered. "I'm not the big guy that's got the billions and billions to throw at it, I'm just a little guy," Stanco said. "And he and his team have treated me and our guys as if we are a big guy."
