    Coca-Cola Handicap-Nominations
    6/15/2014

    NOOSITO, DEL RIO HARBOR CONTINUE RIVALRY,
    13 NOMINATED TO $50,000 COCA-COLA HANDICAP

    AUBURN, Wash. (June 15, 2014) – Trainer Doris Harwood pretty much has owned the Coca-Cola Handicap at Emerald Downs.

    The track’s all-time leader with 62 stakes wins, Harwood has saddled four of the last six winners of the one-mile race for 3-year-olds. She has an excellent chance to make it five wins in seven years, nominating four horses including probable betting favorites Noosito and Del Rio Harbor.

    Noosito comes off a dominant five-length victory in the May 25 Auburn Handicap, running 6 ½ furlongs in 1:14.71, and tied the in-barn rivalry with Del Rio Harbor at two victories each.

    Del Rio Harbor, third in the Auburn, was the track’s Top 2-Year-Old Male of 2013 while racking up three stakes wins and $108,293 in earnings. In his lone start around two turns, Del Rio Harbor won the 2013 Gottstein Futurity.

    Noosito and Del Rio Harbor are both Washington-bred sons of Harbor the Gold, as are Harwood’s two other Coca-Cola nominees, Kenai King and Trick or Retreat.

    Northern California trainer Bill Morey, who invaded to win the Seattle Handicap with City by the Bay, nominated Argyle Cup to the Coca-Cola. Runner-up to unbeaten Exit Stage Left in the Gold Rush at Golden Gate Fields, Argyle Cut comes off a three-length win in a one-mile allowance on the turf, and is 2-4-1 in eight starts with earnings of $71,674.
