    NOTES: Stopshoppingdebbie bids to become the first horse since Shampoo in 2007 to sweep the first three races in the 3-year-old filly division. Shampoo, like Stopshoppingdebbie, was owned and bred by Northwest Farms, and Shampoo and Stopshoppingdebbie are both out of Taste the Passion, Emerald Downs’ Champion 2-Year-Old Filly of 1999…Blueberry Smoothie, third in the first two legs of the series, is the first foal out of Shampoo…In other words, the 2013 Kent Handicap is pretty much a tribute to the breeding operation of Northwest Farms and Jerre Paxton…Odds-on favorites have struggled in the Kent, piling up four losses in the last five years: Exclusive Diva, 2nd at 4-to-5 in 2012, Class Included, 2nd at 4-to-5 in 2011, Ladyledue, 6th at 9-to-10 in 2009, Enumclaw Girl, 3rd at 3-to-10 in 2008…Other odds-on favorites to lose this race: Lasting Code, 8th at 3-to-5 in 2002, Shandra Smiles, 5th at 4-to-5 in 2001, and Taste the Passion, 4th at 7-to-10 in 2000.
