Saratoga and Del Mar 2017

Promising 2-year-olds competed at Saratoga

After recapping the fillies last week, this week we take a look at some of the most promising 2-year-old colts who competed at Saratoga during the recently-concluded 2011 meet. Keep an eye on these runners this fall and beyond.

Alpha

This Darley homebred impressed in his Sept. 3 debut going seven furlongs for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. The son of outstanding young sire Bernardini tracked the pace early, stormed to the lead with good acceleration in upper stretch, and continued to draw away with authority to win by eight lengths. Alpha is out of the Nijinsky II mare Munnaya, a stakes winner in Europe; he’s a half brother to stakes winner Mystic Melody, graded placed Lavender Sky and stakes placed Numaany and Yaya. Alpha’s second dam, Hiaam, is a group winner and stakes producer. Godolphin and Darley are serious about capturing a Kentucky Derby; it will be interesting to see if this colt is shipped to their base in Dubai to train over the winter — as they’ve done with past prospects — or if he remains here for a campaign.
