NOTES: A sweep of the $75,000 Emerald Downs Derby and $150,000 BC Derby (G3) on September 10 is worth a $25,000 (CDN) bonus. . .Even-money (or less) favorites are only 2-for-8 in the Auburn including five losses in six years: Prime Engine sixth at 1-1 in 2015, Del Rio Harbor third at 4-5 in 2014, Carving third at 3-5 in 2013, Couldabenthewhisky eighth at 4-5 in 2011, and Forener fifth at 4-5 in 2010. . . Fooled Again (2015), Showme Yourfriends (2011), Posse Power (2010), Jumron Won (2001) and Cantil (2000) all rallied from fifth place to win the Auburn. . .Cantil earned a 95 Beyer for his win, highest figure by a 3-year-old in the race. Ropersandwranglers earned a 97 in 1998 when the race was for older fillies and mares. . .Blaine Wright (Access This) is 1-1 in stakes this season, saddling Invested Prospect ($9) to a victory in last week’s Seattle Stakes for 3-year-old fillies. . .Guest handicapper (and recently hitched) Miles Liatos selects Mach One Rules in the Auburn Stakes.
