Alpha Bettor takes Woodbine’s Eclipse Stakes

Bulldog Racing’s Alpha Bettor stayed on the rail, took the lead turning for home and held on gamely to win Woodbine’s $200,000 Eclipse Stakes (G2) by a neck. It’s the second graded stakes win for the 6-year-old son of Alphabet Soup, sold for $27,000 at the 2010 Adena Springs Sale. The win gives him a 21-6-4-1 record and earnings of $443,249. watch his under tack video

James and Alice Sapara’s Leinan couldn’t catch fellow OBS graduate Cor Cor (June ’12, March ’12) in the OBS Sprint Stakes this past March, but stalked her in Sunday’s $99,250 Inaugural Stakes at Presque Isle Downs, ran by her in the lane and cruised to a 5-1/4 length victory. Cor Cor settled for third. It’s the second stakes score for the 3-year-old filly by Ready’s Image, now  with a 8-3-3-1 with $239,996. She was consigned by Wavertree Stables, Inc. (Ciaran Dunne), Agent, to the 2012 OBS March Sale. watch her under tack video
