OKAVANGO ALFA Becomes 18th First-Crop Winner in Second Start

Breaking from the inside post in a field of eight, OKAVANGO ALFA put in a sustained drive through the stretch and proved best to win a six-furlong Maiden test by 3/4 length. The 18th winner from the first crop of ALTERNATION, this colt was making only his second career start. He dueled on the inside from the break, stuck his head in from on the turn and battled to the wire to come out on top at Sam Houston. Lifetime record: 2-1-0-0, $5,814. O/B-Jose Luis Espinoza. T-Jerenesto Torrez.
