    EmD Derby & Washington Oaks nominations

    $65,000 EMERALD DERBY MATCHES HARWOOD RIVALS,
    SOPHOMORE FILLIES VIE IN $65,000 WASHINGTON OAKS

    AUBURN, Wash. (August 3, 2014) – It’s championship week for 3-year-olds in both divisions at Emerald Downs.

    Saturday, 3-year-old fillies line up in the $65,000 Washington Oaks at 1 1/8 miles. And Sunday, colts and geldings take their turn in the $65,000 Emerald Downs Derby at 1 1/8 miles. The nine-furlong features figure to play a pivotal role in determining titles ion both divisions.

    In fact, the 3-year-old filly division has been jumbled all season with three different winners in as many races. California-based City by the Bay, winner of the Seattle Handicap, and Ole’s Miss, the Canadian invader that shipped in to win last month’s Kent Handicap, are not nominated to the Washington Oaks.
    That leaves the door open for Irish Day handicap winner Find Your Spot to clinch honors with a win in the Oaks.

    Trainer Robbie Baze has two contenders with Mylast Sweet Pea and Chu and You, the former finishing third, fourth and second in the first three legs of the series, while Chu and You, after seconds in the Seattle and Irish Day, faded to finish sixth in the 1 1/16-mile Kent.

    Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer nominated Lady Fifty Two to the Oaks. A daughter of Kodiak Kowboy, Lady Fifty Two has never raced farther than six furlongs but she did string together wins earlier this year at Golden Gate Fields.

    In the Derby, trainer Doris Harwood holds a pair of aces with Noosito and Del Rio Harbor, Washington-breds by Harbor the Gold that have swept the first three races of the series. Noosito scored big victories in the Auburn and Seattle Slew Handicaps while Del Rio Harbor countered with a 2 ½-length win in the Coca-Cola Handicap. Noosito and Del Rio Harbor are tied 3-3 in the lifetime series, and both seem able to handle the additional distance in the Derby.
