NOTES: Defending champion Cielator could join Wasserman (Muckleshoot Tribal Classic 2008-2009) as the only horse to win the same Washington Cup race twice. Ladyledue (2008 Northwest Farms, 2009 Comcast SportsNet) and Noosa Beach (2008 Daily Racing Form Dennis Dodge, 2010 Muckleshoot Tribal Classic) have each won two different WA Cup races*E Z Kitty is the 1-to-2 morning line favorite on Rob Rao’s line, but is that a good thing? Amazingly, odds-on favorites have lost five of the last six runnings of this race*Sis’s Sis 2nd at 9-to-10 in 2012; Clair Annette 3rd at 4-to-5 in 2010; Gadget Queen 2nd at 1-to-2 in 2009; Firetrail 2nd at 4-to-5 in 2008, and Gemstone Rush 2nd at 7-to-10 in 2007* Favorites also are 0-for-4 in the older filly & mare series this season at EmD.
