    NOTES: With a victory, Winning Machine would equal the feat of Noosa Beach in 2011 by sweeping the first three stakes for older horses. Winning Machine also would become only the 16th horse with five stakes wins at Emerald Downs…Jockey Javier Matias and owner Fleur De Lis Stables have combined for three stakes wins at the meet—Winning Machine (Governor’s & Budweiser) and 3-year-old filly Champagneandcaviar scored at 28-to-1 in the Kent Handicap…Tom Wenzel (Rainier Ice) leads trainers with four stakes wins at the meeting…The Longacres Mile winner has raced in the Mt. Rainier five of the last six years: Flamethrowintexan (2006) won Mt. Rainer by 4-½, won Lga Mile by neck;  The Great Face (2007) won Mt. Rainier by 2-¾, won Lga Mile by head; Wasserman (2008)  2nd by head to Chhaya Dance in Mt. Rainier, won Lga Mile by neck; Assessment (2009) won Mt. Rainier by 2-½, won Lga Mile by ¾-length; Noosa Beach (2010) won Mt. Rainier by 4-½, won Lga Mile by 1-½. The streak ended in 2011 as Noosa Beach won the Mt. Rainier by a half, and Awesome Gem won the Lga Mile by 1-½…St Liams Halo makes his Emerald Downs debut in the Mt. Rainier Handicap, but the 5-year-old gelding was entered in the 2011 Longacres Mile and scratched the morning of the race with a foot injury…Favorites are only 5-for-13 in stakes this year at Emerald Downs, but favorites have gone 6-for-7 since 2005 in the Mt. Rainier, including a $2.60 payoff by Noosa Beach in 2011.The Mt. Rainier winner has paid double digits only twice in 16 runnings: Poker Brad, $14.20, 2003, and Timely Stitch, $75, in 1997…Kentucky-breds lead Washington-breds 7-4 in 2012 stakes at EmD…Gallyn Mitchell (Rainier Ice) is No. 1 all-time with 76 stakes wins at EmD and can tie Ricky Frazier’s record of four wins in the Mt. Rainier. Mitchell has ridden three of the last seven Mt. Rainier winners: Flamethrowintexan, 2005; Assessment, 2009; Noosa Beach, 2011…Nominations for the 2012 Longacres Mile close Sunday, Aug. 5.
