Email

Kikisoblu kicked off Emerald Downs’s 2015 stakes schedule Sunday with an eye-catching victory in the $50,000 Hastings Handicap for fillies and mares. A 4-year-old by Kodiak Kowboy, Kikisoblu clobbered 7-5 favorite City by the Bay by 4 1/4 lengths while running six furlongs in a swift 1:08.69. The longshot Lady of the Nile finished a distant third in the field of 10.
