Mullens has 2 ways to win


AUBURN, Wash. - With She's All Silk attacking from the front and Musical Wine coming from behind, trainer Pat Mullens figures to be live regardless of pace considerations in Friday's allowance feature at Emerald Downs. The six-furlong race has drawn a field of six 2-year-old fillies.

The Mullens trainees, who will race uncoupled in the wagering, are both exiting the six-furlong Diane Kem Stakes on Washington Cup Day, Oct. 2. She's All Silk went off as the even-money favorite in the Diane Kem, but she was dueled into submission by eventual winner Cinderella Liberty and yielded second to her stablemate near the wire. In her previous start, She's All Silk, a daughter of Delineator who races for owner Ed Zenker, ran a good third to divisional leader Chestnut Lady in the Barbara Shinpoch Stakes at a mile.

Musical Wine, a Desert Wine filly owned by Leas Stable, came from seven lengths back to get second at 23-1 in the Kem, and she may get a similar pace scenario on Friday.

Volare Princess has had the early lead in all five of her races at the meet and figures to challenge She's All Silk for the early advantage. Volare Princess, a daughter of Flying Victor from the barn of trainer Roy Lumm, is coming off a gate-to-wire score over $25,000 claimers on Sept. 23, when she got 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.60.

Also a threat is Secret Flame, who may be able to stalk the front-runners after breaking from the outside post.
