NOTES: The $50,000 NWSS Cahill Road Stakes for 2-year-olds replaces the NWSS Slewdledo Stakes, which was restricted to colts & geldings*With a victory, Chu and You would become the first 2-year-old to win five races in a season and only the 12th horse to win four stakes races in a season at Emerald Downs. Undefeated in four starts overall, Chu and You has never trailed another horse while winning her four races by a combined 20 lengths. Dallon’s Gold is unbeaten in two starts and also has excellent early speed. The gelding makes his stakes debut after a 4 ¾-length allowance victory at 5 ½ furlongs* Stikine Slough comes off a fourth in the Daily Racing Form Dennis Dodge Stakes, and prior to that nearly set a track record for largest winning margin while breaking his maiden by 18 ¾ lengths.
