    NOTES: Trainer Blaine Wright (D’honorable One) attempts for a record third straight Seattle Slew victory. Wright won with Newfound Man ($7.60) in 2010 and Zayda ($13.20) in 2011…A victory by D’honorable One also would make it two straight Seattle Slews for the team of Wright, Leslie Mawing and Nelson Family Racing…Alexandersrun in 2005 was the last favorite to win the Seattle Slew Handicap… Tom Wenzel leads EmD trainers with four stakes wins in 2012. Wenzel’s stakes record this season is 8-4-2-0…Mulcahy ($32.20) in 2007 and Zayda in 2011 both rallied from last to score upsets in the Slew, and Fear No Evil ($10.20) in 2008 and Newfound Man in 2010 both led gate-to-wire
