Emerald Downs: Starbird Road repeats


Starbird Road drew out to a 1 3/4-length victory in the $45,000 Seattle Handicap at Emerald Downs. Trained by Sharon Ross, Starbird Road got the six furlongs in 1:08.40 under regular rider Debbie Hoonan-Trujillo and paid $5 to win as the favorite. Wasserman, 26-1, got up for second by a head over Westsideclyde.

It was the fifth straight win for Starbird Road, who also won last year's renewal of the Seattle Handicap.
