Battle of stablemates looms in Seattle Slew


AUBURN, Wash. – There has been little drama this year in the stakes ranks at Emerald Downs. Why Not Be Perfect pulled a $59.80 surprise in the Governor’s Handicap for older horses, but since that late-May shocker, Emerald’s stakes have been dominated by favorites. It could be more of the same Sunday, with Del Rio Harbor likely to be a short price in the $50,000 Seattle Slew Handicap for 3-year-olds.
