Emerald celebrates 20th anniversary with special Monday program


It was 20 years ago on Monday when Strawberry Morn delighted the opening-day crowd at Emerald Downs with a 10-length win over Ever Lasting in the $35,000 U.S. Bank Stakes for 3-year-old fillies. It was the first Thoroughbred race in the Seattle area since Longacres closed in 1992.
