Tollett looks to end stakes drought in Emerald Express


AUBURN, Wash. – While a $50,000 purse might seem like low-hanging fruit to anyone with a fast 2-year-old, only five horses were entered to compete in Sunday’s six-furlong Emerald Express for colts and geldings. For veteran trainer Bill Tollett, who will saddle likely favorite Gold Rush Dancer, it’s a prime opportunity to win an Emerald Downs stakes race for the first time in nearly a decade.
