Alpha schooled in the starting gate then jogged. Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said of the Classic entrant, “We backed him up to the backside, he galloped a mile and went back to the starting gate, where he stood and backed out beautifully. Then, he galloped back to the frontside and went home. Sometimes he gets a little temper in there, but he schools great every day. I just wanted the gate crew to see that he’s a good boy.”
