    NOTES: Three of the top four finishers in last year’s Emerald Express—Mike Man’s Gold, Finallygotabentley and Music of My Soul—have won stakes this season as 3-year-olds at Emerald Downs…However, the EmD champion 2-Year-Old Male has lost this race the last three seasons: Music of My Soul finished fourth to Mike Man’s Gold in 2012, Chu and I finished second to Silver Boxcar in 2011, and Couldabenthewhisky finished fifth to Winter Warlock in 2010…With 11 horses entered, the Emerald Express is the season’s largest stakes field to date, and seven of the runners are coming off maiden victories…Betting favorites are only four-for-12 in stakes this season, and 3-year-old filly Stopshoppingdebbie has three of the wins…Thru July 26, horses breaking from post-positions 9, 10, 11 & 12 were a combined 1-for-57 in sprints this season @ EmD…Hanrahan attempts to become the fourth Canadian shipper to win a stakes this season: Hoist (Governor’s Handicap), Gosailgo, (Boeing Handicap), Herbie D (Mt. Rainier Handicap)…Washington-bred have dominated this race, winning 14 of 17 runnings, but Kentuckv-breds have won six of the first 12 stakes this season @ EmD, followed by Washington-bred with four and B.C.-breds with two.
