    NOTES: The top three finishers in last year’s Lads—Mike Man’s Gold, Music of My Soul and Finallygotabentley—have all won stakes as 3-year-olds this year at Emerald Downs, and eighth-place finisher Scat Daddybaby earned an 88 Beyer while defeating older horses in an allowance/optional claimer last week at one mile…Doris Harwood ranks No. 1 all-time with 58 stakes wins @ EmD including a record 19 stakes wins with 2-year-olds, but the Lads has eluded her. Music of My Soul finished second beaten a head in 2012, Del Siete Leguas and Silver Boxcar finished fourth and fifth in 2011, Gdanz Express finished fifth in 2010, Koala Beach and Untilifindyou finished second and third in 2009, Noosa Beach and Winning Machine finished third and fourth in 2008, and Margo’s Gift was pulled up in 2007…Trainers and owners get two options for 2-year-olds on closing day this year, as the $50,000 Cahill Road Stakes at 6 furlongs complements the $75,000 Gottstein Futurity at 1 1/16 miles…The Noosito ownership syndicate—Last Rose Stable—includes approximately 10 people.
