    NOTES: The last nine winners of this race earned honors as the track’s Top 3-Year-old Male, and that could be the case again this year. Stablemates Noosito and Del Rio Harbor have combined to win the first three events in the 3-year-old colt & gelding division this season, Noosito winning the Auburn Handicap and Seattle Handicap, and Del Rio Harbor prevailing in the Coca-Cola Handicap. A victory by either would likely clinch the championship. . .Favorites are a lowly 2-for-18 in the Emerald Downs Derby, and winless since Gallon was promoted to first on the disqualification of Thiscatsgotcharm in 2008. . .In fact, Alexandersrun in 2005 is the lone favorite to cross the finish line first in the Emerald Downs Derby. . .In this year’s 3-year-old series, the betting favorite is 0-for-3 with Noosito winning both times when Del Rio Harbor was favored, and Del Rio Harbor winning when Noosito was favored in the Coca-Cola Handicap. . . Doris Harwood (Noosito and Del Rio Harbor) is No. 1 all-time with 67 stakes wins at Emerald Downs, but she’s 0-for-3 in the Derby since Winning Machine’s victory in 2009. . . Harwood also began Saturday in a 1-for-25 slump, the lone win by Noosito in the Seattle Slew Handicap. . .Since 2003, Emerald Downs Derby winners include one Arkansas-bred, one Florida-bred, one Maryland–bred, one British Columbia-bred, one Texas-bred, three Kentucky-breds and three Washington-breds. . .Flying Notes in 2002 turned in the most impressive victory in an Emerald Downs Derby—setting a track and stakes record of 1:45 2/5 while winning by a stakes record 11 ¼ lengths. He also earned a 106 Beyer, largest in Emerald Downs Derby history.
