AUBURN, Wash. &ndash; With Washington Cup Day and its six stakes less than a week away, there&rsquo;s no added&#45;money event on the holiday program Monday at Emerald Downs, though there&rsquo;s some star power in the co&#45;featured eighth and ninth races. The 10&#45;race card begins at 2 p.m. Pacific.The eighth race, a first&#45;level $32,000 optional claimer for older horses at 1 1/16 miles, attracted a field of seven, with a 3&#45;year&#45;old, Clear to Canada, among the leading contenders. Though he has just one career victory, Clear to Canada served notice with a fifth&#45;place finish in the $75,000 Emerald Derby in his last start Aug. 15.
