    Joe Withee
    (EmD1): Stopshoppingdebbie, Goin to the Window, Blueberry Smoothie (2-14/$101.30)
    Robert Geller (EmD2): Stopshoppingdebbie, Beautranda, Goin to the Window (4-14/$105.60)

    Jacob Pollowitz (EmD3): Stopshoppingdebbie, Goin to the Window, Blueberry Smoothie (4-14/$131.80)
    Consensus: Stopshoppingdebbie (30), Goin to the Window (10), Blueberry Smoothie (7) (4-14/$121.90)

    NOTES: Stopshoppingdebbie bids to become the first horse to sweep the 3-year-old filly series at Emerald Downs…Before this year, no owner had ever finished first, second and third in a stakes at Emerald Downs, and no trainer had ever finished first, second and third in a stakes (over $25,000). Already this season, Northwest Farms and trainer Tom Wenzel have swept first, second and third in all three stakes for 3-year-old fillies—Stopshoppingdebbie first, Goin to the Window second, Blueberry Smoothie third…Taste the Passion, dam of Stopshoppingdebbie, finished second to Crossatyourownrisk in the 2000 Washington Oaks…Shampoo, dam of Blueberry Smoothie, finished fifth as the 4-to-5 favorite in the 2007 Washington Oaks…Odds-on favorites are only 5-for-12 in the Oaks including Exclusive Diva—trained by Wenzel and owned by Northwest Farms—second at 9-to-10 in last year’s Oaks…Although favorites are only 4-for-14 in stakes this meet, Stopshoppingdebbie is 3-for-3 as the betting favorite—winning the Seattle at 3-to-2, Irish Day at 7-to-10, and Kent at 1-to-5…Wenzel (17-5-5-4) and jockey Rocco Bowen (7-4-0-1) are the leading stakes trainer and jockey at the meet.
