McLaughlin's back-up horse Farhaan takes Alydar


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -   Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin probably felt good about his chances of winding up in the winner’s circle following  Sunday’s $100,000 Alydar Stakes at Saratoga. But it’s not likely he expected to be there with Farhaan, who stole the show from his multiple Grade 1-winning stablemate Alpha by scoring a convincing 3 1/4-length victory under the red-hot Irad Ortiz.
