NOTES: Trainer Tom Wenzel (Blueberry Smoothie & Goin to the Window) is the top stakes trainer this season with a 4-4-0 record in 14 starts*Wenzel & Northwest Farms won this race last year with Exclusive Diva who is currently Emerald Downs’ top 3-year-old filly with victories in the Seattle Handicap & Irish Day Handicap*Northwest Farms is No. 1 all-time with 29 EmD stakes wins and has the top two morning line choices in Blueberry Smoothie & Goin to the Window. A victory by either filly would not increase those totals, however, as they are owned in partnership*Valid Vixen Queen is a $5,000 supplementary nomination to the Angie C. She also was a $1,500 supplemental nomination to the July 1 Son of Briartic Stakes.
