    NOTES: The Auburn Handicap is the first stakes race for 3-year-old colts and geldings…Havanna Red, second in the 2011 WTBOA Lads and Gottstein Futurity, could become the first maiden ever to win the Auburn Handicap. His trainer Chris Stenslie won this race last year with 50-1 long shot Showme Yourfriends, who finished second to Aaron the Baron in yesterday’s feature race…2001 winner Jumron Won is the only horse to capture the Auburn Handicap and the Emerald Downs Derby. The gelding is also the only Auburn winner to receive Top 3-Year-Old honors…Owner and breeder Ron Crockett, the track’s all-time leader in wins with 214, looks for his 17th stakes triumph with Johnski. A Johnski victory would also give jockey William Antongeorgi his first Emerald Downs’ stakes win…Brady’s Kat—the field’s only stakes winner—captured the 2011 Dennis Dodge Stakes on Washington Cup Day…Conditioner Tom Wenzel (Makors Finale) could become the first trainer with two stakes wins at the meet after already winning last week’s Seattle Handicap with Exclusive Diva…Owners Sue and Tim Spooner (City Twister), third all-time in wins and earnings, went 2-for-2 last week and were selected Emerald Downs’ Owner of the Week…Trainer Blaine Wright and owner Heidi Nelson (D’honorable One) combined for two 3-year-old stakes wins last season with Zayda…Jockey Juan Gutierrez has ridden 5-of-the-last-7 stakes winners at Emerald Downs, including three on Washington Cup Day last season and two this season with Class Included in the Hastings Handicap and Exclusive Diva in the Seattle Handicap…In the 2010 Auburn, jockey Mario Gutierrez, scheduled to ride Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, finished third aboard Clear to Canada.
