Longacres Mile field coming together slowly


AUBURN, Wash. – The list of candidates for the Grade 3 Longacres Mile has been slow to take shape, with only a handful of Emerald Downs-based horses confirmed for the Northwest’s marquee race Aug. 24. Stryker Phd, the winner of the Mt. Rainier Handicap on Sunday in his final Longacres Mile tune-up, headlines a small local contingent that likely will include Dontmesswithkitten and Disruption but very few others.
