    Alpha Bettor scored his first graded victory when he took the GIII Seagram Cup S. over this track and trip in August. He returned for a runner-up allowance effort under these conditions Sept. 21, but could do no better than fourth stretching out to 1 1/8 miles in the GIII Durham Cup Oct. 14. The chestnut was fourth again last time out in the GII Autumn S. Nov. 10. Making his seasonal debut as the second-longest shot on the board here, Alpha Bettor was away well and briefly pressed the pace before being held into a tracking position in third behind the leader. He inched closer entering the turn and bid from the rail as favored Delegation took command from the two path and James Street rallied four wide. The trio battled from midstretch on, but Alpha Bettor was able to take a narrow advantage late and hit the wire in front. "I had a perfect trip," said winning jockey Justin Stein. "I had to wait a little longer than I wanted to, but it worked out for the better. Everyone was asking their horses to run and I was able to save a little more horse and it made the difference. Once he got his head in front, he ran a game race. I could just feel him wanting to win the race."
