Alpha on Thursday morning at Churchill Downs

May 3, 2012 It was a bit cooler but partly cloudy on Thursday morning in Louisville\ with an expected high of 85. Most of the Kentucky Derby contenders were out this morning, but there were no timed works. Entries were taken and post positions drawn yesterday with 20 starting and one also-eligible who will get in if anyone scratches by 9am Friday.

Alpha went to the track Thursday morning for what is a routine piece of exercise under rider Rob Massey. "We did the same thing we have been doing, back up to the sixteenth pole and gallop about a mile and three-eighths," McLaughlin said. "He's doing great, continues to train well and ate up well. Everything is going great."
