Absolutely Cool back with original trainer


AUBURN, Wash. – Eleven horses were nominated for Sunday’s Governor’s Handicap at Emerald Downs, the first major stepping-stone to the Grade 3 Longacres Mile in August, but the number of legitimate contenders is considerably smaller. Mr. Bowling, second in an allowance race in his season debut, and Absolutely Cool, a recent stakes winner in Arizona, are likely to attract the lion’s share of the betting.
