    NOTES: Alexandersrun in 2005 was the last favorite to win the Seattle Slew Handicap, including a loss last year by Noosito’s older brother, Music of My Soul, who finished second as Mike Man’s Gold scored at 18-to-1. Worldventurer finished third but rebounded with a seven-length victory in the Emerald Derby and honors as the track’s Top 3-Year-Old Male. . .Speed has fared well in recent Slews: Mike Man’s Gold, Italian Boy (2012), Newfound Man (2010) and Fear No Evil (2008) all led gate-to-wire. . .Doris Harwood is No. 1 all-time with 63 EmD stakes wins and trains three of the four horses in this year’s race, but the Seattle Slew has been a bugaboo for her—Music of My Soul  was second at 6-to-5 last year, Edge Forward was third at 3-to-1 in 2012, Koala Beach was sixth at 9-to-5 in 2010, and Noosa Beach and Winning Machine finished second and third at 9-to-2 and 9-to-5 in 2009. . . The last six Emerald Derby winners all lost the Seattle Slew Handicap: Worldventurer finished third in 2013; Makors Finale finished fourth in 2012; Jebrica finished fourth in 2011; Saratoga Boot finished third in 2010; Winning Machine finished third in 2009, and Gallon finished fourth in 2008.
