Seattle Slew Handicap, graveyard of favorites


AUBURN, Wash. – Del Rio Harbor tops the list of eight horses nominated for Sunday’s $50,000 Seattle Slew Handicap at Emerald Downs. The four-time stakes winner is certain to attract heavy interest in the betting, yet to prevail in the 1 1/16-mile Seattle Slew, he’ll have to overcome a daunting trend: The past nine favorites have tasted defeat in the meeting’s second two-turn stakes for 3-year-olds.
