NOTES: Trainer Howard Belvoir, tied for most Washington Cup stakes wins with five, saddles Rhinghals in the Dennis Dodge Stakes*Music of My Soul’s full-brother Noosa Beach won the 2008 Dennis Dodge Stakes. His trainer, Doris Harwood, won this race three consecutive years from 2007 to 2009 (Margo’s Gift, 2007; Noosa Beach, 2008; Koala Beach, 2009)*Last year’s winner, Brady’s Kat, will start in the $35,000 Chinook Pass Stakes for 3-year-old colts and geldings. His owner/breeder Keith Swagerty looks for back-to-back Dennis Dodge scores with Mike Man’s Gold* David Bennett (Master’s Bluff) seeks his first WA Cup victory at Emerald Downs. Bennett captured the Diane Kem for 2-year-old fillies with Freedom March in 2002*one year before the WA Cup series began.
