Alpha, Miss Netta Looking at Breeders' Cup

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin reported Sunday that Alpha and Miss Netta, respective runner-up and third-place finishers in the Champagne and Frizette, had both emerged from their races in good order.


“Everyone came back in good shape and of this morning, all systems are ‘go’ for the Breeders’ Cup [Juvenile and Juvenile Fillies], but we still have to discuss it with all the parties and see for sure,” he said.


Both juveniles were eye-catching maiden winners at Saratoga and made just their second starts in yesterday’s stakes. Alpha got away slowly in the Champagne but kicked on in the stretch to grab second by a neck, while Miss Netta ran greenly as she trailed through the early stakes of the Frizette, but came home well to collect show honors. 


Alpha and Miss Netta will be joined by dual Grade 1 winner It’s Tricky, headed to the Ladies’ Classic, and speedy Trappe Shot, looking at either the Sprint or the Dirt Mile, in the Breeders’ Cup..
