    NOTES: Stopshoppingdebbie would become the first horse since Marva Jean in 2005 to sweep the Hastings Handicap & Washington State Legislators Stakes in the same year…Exclusive Diva—trained by Tom Wenzel and owned by Northwest Farms—denied E Z Kitty a sweep of last year’s Hastings/Washington State Legislators with a 1 ¼-length win in 1:14.88. E Z Kitty finished second at 0.90-to-1 and became the 10th straight favorite to lose in the Washington State Legislators, a streak that began when Northwest Farms’ Lasting Code finished third at 0.70-to-1 in 2004. Subsequent favorites to lose: Sariano, 4th at 1.70-to1 in 2005; Sudden Departure, 6th at 3.40-to-1 in 2006; Kissntheboysgoodby, 3rd at 2.00-to-1 in 2007; Private Dreams, 5th at 0.60-to-1 in 2008; High Resolve, 2nd at 0.30-to-1 in 2009; Hallelujah Trail, 2nd at 1.40-to-1 in 2010; Cliff’s Secret, 5th at 1.20-to-1 in 2011; Class Included, 2nd at 1.10-to-1 in 2012. . .Fleet Pacific in 2001 and Ema Bovary in 2003 are the only betting favorites to win this race. When Fleet Pacific prevailed by a half-length in 2001, finishing second at 22-to-1 was Taste the Passion, dam of Stopshoppingdebbie. . .Shampoo, dam of Blueberry Smoothie, finished third in the 2008 Washington State Legislators. . .With a victory, Stopshoppingdebbie would become only the 10th horse to win at least six stakes at Emerald Downs. . .With a victory¸ Stopshoppingdebbie would have the most wins by an undefeated horse in North America; she enters Sunday tied with Ide Be Cool, a 3-year-old gelding based at Delta Downs.
