    NOTES: Formerly the Federal Way Handicap (1998-2010), the Seattle Handicap is the first stakes race and lone sprint for 3-year-old fillies en route to the $65,000 Washington Oaks on Saturday, Aug. 11…Washington-breds won 13-of-23 open stakes last year at EmD, but Kentucky-breds have captured the first two stakes this year: Class Included (Hastings Handicap) and Winning Machine (Governor’s Handicap)…Kentucky-breds also lead Washington-bred fillies 9-to-4 in the Seattle Handicap including a three-length victory last year by Class Included, who went on to division honors as EmD’s Top 3-Year-Old Filly…A victory by either Muchas Coronas or Lady Hokulea and Jim Penney would tie the late Bud Klokstad for second place all-time with 43 stakes wins at EmD…Penney has conditioned the last two 3-year-old filly champions at EmD: Class Included (2011) and Sis’s Sis (2010)…Favorites were only 1-for-5 in this division last year…The dam of Reliable Ema, Ema Bovary, won two stakes at Emerald Downs, and Seeking Ema, also out of Ema Bovary, finished second to Ladyledue in the 2009 Federal Way Handicap…Fractions in the 2011 Seattle Handicap: :21.55 (Carrabelle Harbor), :43.81 (Awesome Woman), 1:08.92 & 1:15. 68 (Class Included)…Trainer Tim Harder (Royal Moses) seeks his first stakes win at Emerald Downs, although he did finish second in the 1998 Longacres Mile with Mocha Express.
