    NOTES: This race features several of the track’s all-time leaders in stakes victories. Gallyn Mitchell (Elusive Noise) ranks No. 1 among jockeys with 74 stakes wins, Northwest Farms (Elusive Noise) is No.1 among owners with 27 stakes wins and Doris Harwood (Carrabelle Harbor) leads trainers with 54 stakes wins…Washington-breds have won the last three runnings of the Hastings—You Me and Ema B, No Flies On Doodle and Clair AnnetteMichael & Amy Feuerborn (Class Included) topped owners in 2011 Emerald Downs earnings ($236,931) and stakes wins (4)…In 2011, Class Included was voted Top 3-Year-old Filly at Emerald Downs and Champion 3-Year-Old Filly (open) in British Columbia…Speed has been dominant in the Hastings, including eight gate-to-wire winners in 16 runnings. You Me and Ema B (2011) and No Flies On Doodle (2010) were both second after a quarter-mile before winning the race. The last 12 winners all led at the stretch call; the last winner not to lead at the eighth-pole was Philamina Halfmoon in 1999. In that race, Cocktails Anyone led into the stretch but clipped heels, fell and did not finish…Ema Bovary, the 2003 Hastings winner, was a proud mama Saturday as first-time starter Reliable Ema (a Kentucky-bred by Smarty Jones-Ema Bovary) prevailed in the fourth race…You Me and Ema B, the 5-year-old mare named after Ema Bovary, might have been favored in today’s race, but Emerald Downs’ Top Older Filly or Mare of 2011 worked three furlongs in :35-4/5 on May 7 and might be race-ready when older fillies and mares reconvene June 10 for the $50,000 Washington State Legislators Stakes.
