    Lil Barbie Doodle cruises to victory in Friday's feature race.

    LIL BARBIE DOODLE OVERCOMES OBSTACLES,
    PREVAILS IN EMERALD DOWNS DEBUT

    AUBURN, Wash. (June 6) – An eventful trip proved no problem for California invader Lil Barbie Doodle in Friday night’s feature race at Emerald Downs.

    With leading rider Leslie Mawing aboard, Lil Barbie Doodle rolled to a 2 ½-length victory over betting favorite Lumen Took It in the $10,300 feature race for older fillies and mares.

    Owned and trained by Tim McCanna, Lil Barbie Doodle ran one mile in 1:37.04 and paid $6.80, $3.80 and $2.40. The well-traveled 4-year-old filly already has raced this year at Santa Anita, Turf Paradise, Golden Gate Fields and Emerald Downs.

    Friday, she broke outward from the No. 5 post-position and was rank while racing wide around the first turn. Finally settling into an even stride, she gradually made her way to the lead, opened a commanding four-length lead into the stretch, and had plenty left to hold off Lumen Took It for the victory.

    Lumen Took It, ridden by Rocco Bowen, rallied form last to finish second and paid $3.20 and $2.40. It was another three lengths back to Anitewithyou, ridden by Gallyn Mitchell, and a $3 show payoff.

    Inquiry Miss and Mini Candy completed the order of finish; Seattle Harbor was scratched.

    A Florida-bred by Pomeroy-Powerful Two Punch, Lil Barbie Doll has a 3-2-2 record in 24 starts with lifetime earnings of $38,519.

    NOTES: Jennifer Whitaker rode Kilauea ($7.80) to victory in the seventh race and reclaimed the No. 1 position as all-time leading woman rider with 437 wins at Emerald Downs, one better than Debbie Hoonan. . .Trainer Jeff Metz won two races and leads Frank Lucarelli 27-17 in the trainers’ standings. . .Mawing’s feature race win gave him a 31-29 lead over Rocco Bowen in the trainers’ standings. . .Betting favorites were 0-for-7 Friday. . .Aaron Levine, sports anchor for KCPQ 13, was the special guest race announcer for race three won by Barton Hill ($10.60). Other guest announcers Saturday and Sunday for Guys Weekend are Jeff The Fish Aaron of KRKO 1380, UW public address announcer Eric Radovich, Seattle Times sports writer Scott Hanson and longtime KOMO 4 news anchor and thoroughbred owner Dan Lewis. . .Jockey Frank Alvarado rode his 3,000th career winner Friday, guiding the Larry Ross-trained Curly Girly ($8) to victory at Golden Gate Fields. . .Live racing continues Saturday with first post 2 p.m. The first Belmont simulcast is 8:35 a.m., and the Belmont Stakes goes as Race 11 at 3:52 p.m.
