The first New York graded route on the road to Kentucky Derby 2012 was run at Aqueduct on Saturday and overwhelming favorite Alpha did not disappoint in a facile G3 Withers tally.
G3 Withers (2-4-12): 90 BSF (Alpha)
was my original number one Derby contender when I posted my first blog
about the current sophomore class last September and he is on the
upswing for Godolphin and Kiaran McLaughlin.
