    NOTES: The Emerald Derby is the championship event for 3-year-olds at Emerald Downs…The past three Derby winners—Winning Machine, Saratoga Boot & Jebrica—are nominated to the $200,000 Longacres Mile (G3) Sunday, August 19… The past seven Derby winners (Saratoga Boot, 2010; Winning Machine, 2009; Gallon, 2008; Mulcahy, 2007; Raise the Bluff, 2006; Alexandersrun, 2005) have been selected Top 3-Year-Old Male at EmD…Post positions No.1 and No.5 have accounted for more than half of the 17 stakes wins this season. Post No.1 has produced five winners while Post No. 5 has produced four winners… Javier Matias (Brady’s Kat), who won yesterday’s Washington Oaks aboard Champagneandcaviar, could become the first rider to sweep the Oaks and Derby since Ricky Frazier won both championship events in 2005 aboard A Classic Life and Alexandersrun. Matias and Juan Gutierrez (Edge Forward) lead all riders in stakes wins this season and have compiled sparkling stakes records of 14-5-0-5 and 13-5-4-1, respectively…Favorites are only 2-for-16 in the Derby at Emerald Downs. The last favorite to win came in 2008, when Gallon (1.10-to-one) finished second but moved up to first after Thiscatsgotcharm was disqualified and placed second.
