    NOTES: Demonstrating the unpredictable nature of inexperienced 2-year-olds is the fact betting favorites are only 4-for-18 in this race, and have won only twice in the last 15 years—Hollywood Harbor (2009) and Melcap Walker (2001). . .Stikine Slough finished last as the 9-to-5 favorite last year as Del Rio Harbor prevailed at 15-to-1 en route to Top 2-Year-Old Male. . .In 2012, Scat Daddybaby finished next-to-last at even-money, in 2011 D’honorable One finished third at 3-to-5, and in 2010 Seattle Sniper finished second at 6-to-5. . .Trackattacker set a 4 ½ furlong track record of :49.98 while winning his June 1 debut by nine lengths. Roy Schaefer (R.E.V. Racing) owns two Emerald Downs’ track record-holders: Trackattacker and Atta Boy Roy (6F 1:07, September 13, 2009). . .Trackattacker’s 74 Beyer is the largest by an EmD 2-year-old since Music of My Soul got a 74 in the 2012 Gottstein Futurity. . .A Moonee Beach victory would tie Doris Harwood with Howard Belvoir for most wins by a trainer in the Emerald Express.
