Sam Houston: Dusty Spike rallies to win Alamo


Dusty Spike ($25.20) stalked the leaders early, then rallied through the stretch to a one-length victory over De Real Deal in Saturday night's $25,000 Alamo Stakes at Sam Houston Race Park in Houston.

It was another 2 1/2 lengths back in third to 2-5 favorite Boston Common, who set a pressured pace before weakening over a track rated good.
