    NOTES: Class Included (2011-12) and Elusive Horizon (2008-09) are the only horses to sweep the Washington Oaks and Emerald Distaff. . .Stopshoppingdebbie bids to become the third horse to accomplish the feat, and a victory would complete sweeps of the entire series for 3-year-old fillies in 2013, and for older fillies and mares in 2014. Moreover, a victory Sunday and Stopshoppingdebbie would have sole possession of Emerald Downs’ record for most consecutive stakes victories—a mark she currently shares with Ropersandwranglers at seven stakes wins apiece. As a 3-year-old, Stopshoppingdebbie won the Seattle Handicap, Irish Day Handicap, Kent Handicap and Washington Oaks. As a 4-year-old, she has wins in the Hastings Handicap, Washington State Legislators Stakes and Boeing Handicap. She currently has the most wins of any unbeaten horse in North America, and already has wins at six different distances spanning 5 ½ furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. . .Wando Woman, second in this race to E Z Kitty last year, would be the first shipper to win since Kimmyv shipped from Hastings Racecourse to win in 2010. Wando Woman also would become the second horse to win the Distaff after finishing second the previous year. Runner-up to Ignite The Passion in 1999, Fleet Pacific won the Distaff in 2000 & 2001 and is the only horse to win the race twice.
