Dating to last year, Nelson Family Racing and trainer Blaine Wright have won three of the last four races in the 3YO division dating to last year…The dead-heat between D’honorable One and Makors Finale was only the second dead-heat for win in 573 stakes in 17 seasons at Emerald Downs…Trainer Tom Wenzel (Makors Finale) is 2-2-0 in five stakes starts this season, and his Rainier Ice finished first in the 2011 Coca-Cola but was disqualified and placed fourth for interference in the stretch…Javier Matias (Brady’s Kat) and Juan Gutierrez are tied for first with two stakes wins each at the 2012 meet…Stevies Lil’wonder, dam of Edge Forward, is out of Run Away Stevie, the winner of the inaugural running of this event in 1996 when the race was for older fillies & mares.
