There is plenty at stake this weekend when Emerald Downs draws the curtain on its 49-day meet with 11-race cards Saturday and Sunday:

  • Jockeys Alex Cruz (l) and Julien Couton (r) begin the weekend tied for first with 73 wins each while Juan Gutierrez also remains in contention with 68 wins.
  • Joe Toye leads Frank Lucarelli 29-24 in the trainers’ race with Toye having runners in 11 races this weekend while Lucarelli has horses in six races, including a record five in the Gottstein Futurity.
  • John Parker tops the owners’ standings by a 17-15 margin over Greg Conley, Chuck Conley and Terra Firma Farm. Both are well-represented this weekend with the Conleys running six horses and Parker five.
  • Sunday’s card features three consecutive stakes races–Washington Cup events for older males and older fillies and mares and the traditional closing day Gottstein Futurity for 2-year-olds.
  • Lucarelli sends out a record five runners in the Gottstein including Boss Nine, a Goldencents gelding stretching out off a good maiden victory four weeks ago. Although a maiden, Diamond Willow is the 5 to 2 morning line favorite following a second in the WTBOA Lads two weeks ago. Multiple stakes winner Cobra Jet, also trained by Lucarelli, will not run in the Gottstein.
  • Defending champion Unmachable heads a six-horse field in the Muckleshoot Tribal Classic. Although winless in 2021, the 4-year-old Macho Uno gelding was beaten only 3 1/2 lengths while finishing fifth to Background in the Longacres Mile (G3).
  • Bayakoas Image will be strongly backed in the Washington Cup Filly & Mare Stakes. The 3-year-old British Columbia-bred is two for two at a mile and a sixteenth including a 5 3/4-length victory in the Washington Oaks on August 29. Blazingbellablu and Ms Lynn are both stakes winners at the meet and could win Top 3-Year-Old Filly honors with a victory Sunday.
