New York Watch: Alpha [01:45]
When Kiaran McLaughlin entered Alpha in Saturday's seventh race, the trainer thought he had picked a difficult spot for the colt to make his debut. Not only was the race seven furlongs, it also featured well-regarded horses who had the benefit of a previous start. "[Alpha] drew down toward the inside, the 3 hole he had, and I was afraid of two who had already started [Invocation and Africanist] because seven-eighths is a hard distance first-time out," said McLaughlin. Alpha made those concerns moot by securing the fourth position up the backstretch, advancing into second on the far turn, reeling in the free-running pacesetter with three-sixteenths left, and needing only intermittent urging from jockey Alan Garcia to win by six lengths. The final time for seven furlongs was 1:23.97. "It was a 'wow' performance," said McLaughlin. "He ran huge. Everything went right for him and he won easily. We don't win that often first-time out, so that was nice." Alpha, a Darley Stable homebred, is by 2006 Champion Three-Year-Old Male Bernardini and out of the Nijinski III mare Munnaya, who won an English listed stakes. Munnaya has produced four horses with black type, including Mystic Melody, who in France captured a listed stakes and placed in two Group 3 events.

1999 A Phenomenon Handicap [00:43]
The 131-year-old Saratoga Race Course lived up to its reputation as ''the graveyard of favorites'' today when the 4-5 favorite, Yes It's True, ran third while the 10-1 long shot Intidab was winning the A Phenomenon Handicap. To appreciate the full measure of the upset, consider that Yes It's True had won four stakes in a row and six in his last seven starts, and was the favorite not only to win the race but to take a possibly decisive step toward nailing down the sprint championship for the year. Further, he is owned by the successful Padua Stable and trained by D. Wayne Lukas, and he was ridden for the eighth straight time by Jerry Bailey, all members of racing's elite. But with all that going, Yes It's True proved no match for the demons of Saratoga's past nor for the relentless speed shown by Intidab in Saratoga's present. Intidab is a 6-year-old horse owned by the Shadwell Stable of the Maktoum royal family of Dubai on the Persian Gulf and trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, a former assistant to Lukas and one of the six disciples who flanked him at his Hall of Fame induction on Monday. Until this year, Intidab had raced mainly in Dubai and since arriving in this country last spring, had won only once in five starts.
