    SPOT ON BABE MAKES IT THREE IN A ROW,
    DEFEATS CLEMENS BROOK IN FRIDAY FEATURE

    AUBURN, Wash. (May 30, 2014) – There is no stopping Spot On Babe this season at Emerald Downs.

    Not even a slow break could derail the razor-sharp 4-year-old filly Friday night, as she powered to a three-length victory over Clemens Brook in the $14,800 feature race for older fillies and mares.

    With Leslie Mawing riding, Spot On Babe ran six furlongs in 1:08.67 and paid $3.80, $2.40 and $2.20. Frank Lucarelli is the trainer for owner Ron Crockett, Inc.

    Spot On Babe is three-for-three at the meeting and rapidly climbing the claiming ladder. She has won for, in order, claiming prices of $10,000, $15,000 and $20,000, and is an early contender for the meet’s Top Claimer. A Washington-bred by Tribal Rule-Irene’s Bonus Baby, Spot On Babe is 5-0-0 in eight overall starts with earnings of $39,562, including $8,140 for Friday’s triumph.

    There were a few anxious moments, however, as Spot On Babe hopped at the start and got away behind her main rival, Clemens Brook, and ended up making a quick three-wide bid for the lead.

    Spot On Babe entered the stretch with a one-length lead, after running the half-mile in :44.93, and drew off through the lane.

    “I know this filly has good speed and I wasn’t afraid to use it,” Mawing said. “Once we went past Clemens Brook, I still had a lot of horse. She’s very sharp.”

    Clemens Brook, ridden by Jennifer Whitaker, held second and paid $3 and $2.60. The 7-year-old mare also has performed well at the meet, compiling a win and two seconds—both vs. Spot On Babe.

    Liberty Lake, ridden by Juan Gutierrez, finished third and paid $3.80. Lasting Rose, Holy Dazzle and Maggie’s Special completed the order of finish.

    Trainer Jeff Metz and Saratoga West claimed Holy Dazzle Friday for $20,000.

    NOTES: Trainer Joe Toye reeled off back-to-back winners as Kahului Bluff ($26.20) and Tobiah’s Journey ($15.40) both rallied in the stretch to take races four and five. . .Trainer Sam Dronen has won with his last three starters including Crush On You ($6) in the Friday opener. Dronen had a two-win day Sunday, including the meet’s biggest $2 win payoff as Lady Aragorn scored at odds of 35.60-to-1. . .Speaking of hot trainers, Alan Bozell also made it three wins in two days as Mr. Top Kat ($7.80) scored his seventh career victory in Friday’s second race. . .And trainer Howard Belvoir also had a good night, saddling It’s Our Pleasure ($3.80) and Run Atom to a one-two finish in the Friday finale for $3,500 claimers at one mile. Jennifer Whitaker notched the win aboard It’s Our Pleasure to tie Debbie Hoonan for most career victories by a woman rider at Emerald Downs with 436 apiece. . .The father and son handicapping team of Al and Andy Smallman had its annual outing Friday night, with some 25 students from the Puget Sound Community School practicing and learning the finer points of handicapping prowess courtesy of the Smallmans. . .Live racing continues Saturday with first post 2 p.m.
