Alpha heads the $1 million Pennsylvania Derby at 1 1/8 miles at Parx Racing in Bensalem on Saturday. Alpha is the leading 3-year-old still in training and most recently won the Grade 1 Travers along with Golden Ticket, who finished with him in a dead heat. These two are the ones to beat, but Csaba has the speed to contend here though no Graded stakes wins under his belt. Macho Macho is coming off a win in the West Virginia Derby and is in good form right now. Casual Trick is coming off two straight allowance wins and will have to take a step up to compete at this level. Stephanoatsee, Handsome Mike, and Junebugred round out the field.
