    NOTES: The Emerald Distaff is the championship event for fillies and mares… Last year’s Distaff winner, Class Included, became only the second female runner in track history to be named Horse of the Meeting. Also, Class Included and Elusive Horizon are the only horses sweep both the Washington Oaks and the Emerald Distaff. With a victory, Champagneandcaviar could become the third…E Z Kitty entered last year’s Distaff, but was scratched after she was sold privately to out-of-state connections…Both trainers Michael Puhich and Jeff Metz could sweep today’s Distaff and Mile. Puhich saddles Evelyn’s Dancer in the Distaff and holds three aces—Hoist, Mr. Bowling & Tres Borrachos—in The Mile. Meanwhile, Metz sends out E Z Kitty in the Distaff, with her stable mate Why Not Be Perfect representing the Metz barn in The Mile.
