    NOTES—The Washington State Legislators Stakes is the final sprint stakes for older fillies and mares…Class Included bids to become the first horse since Marva Jean in 2005 to sweep the Hastings & Washington State Legislators Stakes in the same season. The Include filly’s rider Juan Gutierrez has won 5-of-the-last-8 stakes races at Emerald Downs, dating back to his three stakes wins last September on Washington Cup Day. A win by Class Included or Sweet Nellie Brown would move trainer Jim Penney into a second-place tie with Bud Klokstad with 43 stakes wins at Emerald Downs…Trainer Doris Harwood was the last trainer to complete an exacta in an Emerald Downs’ stakes race, when Noosa Beach finished one-length ahead of then-stablemate Winning Machine in the 2010 Seattle Handicap…Ema Bovary in 2003 was the last favorite to win the Washington State Legislators Stakes. In fact, favorites have only won this race twice in 16 years…Rewritten, who makes her 2012 debut, finished a fast-closing second to Summers Peace in last year’s Washington State Legislators stakes at 16-to-1…Leonel Camacho-Flores and E Z Kitty combined to notch their first-ever stakes win last September in the John and Kitty Fletcher Stakes on Washington Cup Day.
