A half-brother to Grade 2 winner Vino Rosso, Robert LaPenta's 2-year-old So Alive made an impressive start to his racing career on Saturday at Keeneland. The son of Super Saver was second-last at the top of the stretch, but wove through traffic and stepped up impressively to hit the wire a neck in front in the maiden special weight contest. Ridden by Tyler Gaffalione for trainer Todd Pletcher, So Alive completed six furlongs over the muddy main track in 1:11.21.

Bred by John Gunther at Glennwood Farm, So Alive is out of the Street Cry mare Mythical Bride. The colt brought $160,000 as a yearling at the Keeneland September sale last fall.
