Alabama Stakes | Order Of Finish and Replay

Today at Saratoga racecourse, Royal Delta (seen here) came late to win the GI Alabama Stakes by a gaping 5 1/2 lengths over would-be” Triple Tiara” hopeful It’s Tricky!

3rd went to long shot Pinch Pie back another length and 4th to Plum Pretty back another 3 lengths

St John’s River and Inglorious finished 5th and 6th and neither of who raised a hoof here today!

Winning time was 2:03.13

Our Picks of 3,4,5,6 were torpedoed by a very strange turn of events here as Saratoga again lived up to its moniker of the “Graveyard of Favorites“!

P.S. No Triple Tiara winner this year either!
