Racing clicked with Mebossman for a $13 upset in last Sunday’s $65,000 Emerald Downs Derby. . .Jockey Leslie Mawing is the top stakes rider with seven wins at the meet. . .Favorites are 9-for-16 in stakes at the meet (56%). . .Harbor the Gold, sire of Trackattacker, is the meet’s leading stakes sire with four wins. . .Lucarelli can move up to fourth place in all-time EmD stakes wins; he currently is tied with Tim McCanna and Howard Belvoir at 31 stakes wins apiece.
