    NOTES: The WTBOA Lads is the final open stakes for 2-year-old colts and geldings before the $65,000 Gottstein Futurity on closing day, September 23…Chu and I won last year’s WTBOA Lads Stakes en route to Top Juvenile Male honors. In fact, the last five winners have gone on to receive Top honors including Couldabenthewhisky (2010), Hollywood Harbor (2009), Gallant Son (2008) and Gallon (2007). Chu and I’s connections, owner Michael and Amy Feuerborn and trainer Jim Penney, look for back-to-back Lads scores with Scat Daddybaby…The WTBOA Lads is one of the few stakes races to elude trainer Doris Harwood, who will saddle Noosa Beach’s full brother Music of My Soul. A victory would give the younger sibling bragging rights over his multiple award-winning brother, who finished third in the 2008 Lads…Conditioner Tom Wenzel (Finallygotabentley) leads all trainers with six stakes wins this season, including the Angie C Stakes with Goin to the Window.
