The 2-year-old colts drew off in the stretch to capture the $50,000 maiden claiming event by 8 1/4 lengths over Banker's Boss. The time for the six furlongs was 1:11.52.

Making his third lifetime start, Skerkis paid $11.80, $6.10 and $4.30 as the 9-2 fourth choice in a field of seven 2-year-olds.

The 28-year-old Alvarado began riding in his native Venezuela in 2005. He won his first race in the United States in 2007. A regular on the New York circuit since late 2010, he enjoyed the biggest victory of his career earlier in the meet at Saratoga, taking the $1.5 million Whitney Stakes on Moreno.

Mike Dempsey Mike covers the New York racing circuit (Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga) year round as well as Keeneland, Churchill Downs, the Triple Crown, and the Breeders' Cup.
The 2015 Triple Crown saw Mike correctly predict American Pharoah to win both the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. Mike nailed the Exacta and Trifecta in the Belmont Stakes.

Mike had a solid 2014 Triple Crown race season, correctly picking the winning horse in 2 of 3 races. He selected I'll Have another to win The Preakness, and nailed Union Rags to win the Belmont Stakes as his top pick.

Mike also had past success in the Kentucky Derby, winning with Animal Kingdom in 2011 and rode his top picks, Super Saver and Street Sense, to the finish line in 2010 and 2007 respectively.
