AUBURN, Wash. &ndash; The $75,000 Gottstein Futurity is the centerpiece of an 11-race card Sunday as Emerald Downs pulls down the curtain on its 15th season. Getaway Day begins at 2 p.m. Pacific, and the Gottstein is the 10th race on a program that also includes the Ashbaugh Beal Claiming Challenge, a six-race showcase for horses who have started for various claiming prices in 2010.\r\nThe 1 1/16-mile Gottstein likely will determine the division championship for 2-year-old colts and geldings. Couldabenthewhisky already has two stakes victories at the meeting and would be a virtual shoo-in for those honors should he win Sunday. Winter Warlock, with one stakes victory and three runner-up finishes in added-money events, is the other leading contender.\r\nAs good as those two are, however, the Gottstein favorite could be Jebrica, coming off a powerful victory in a maiden race a month ago, or the supremely talented Seattle Sniper, who was second behind Winter Warlock in the six-furlong Premio Esmeralda Stakes on Aug. 8 and then third behind Couldabenthewhisky in the one-mile WTBOA Lads Stakes on Aug. 29.\r\nCouldabenthewhisky, Winter Warlock, and Seattle Sniper are the only horses in the eight-horse field with experience around two turns, but Jebrica, who&rsquo;s by Liberty Gold from the Halo mare Peaceful Wings, is bred to relish the Gottstein distance. As is common in juvenile stakes, there&rsquo;s lots of speed in the lineup, with Winter Warlock and recent maiden winner Fueled by Kaffine the two most likely to assume command around the first turn.\r\nCouldabenthewhisky has won 3 of 5 starts for trainer Bonnie Jenne, who owns him in partnership with Seattle-area residents Andy Maib, Craig Fredrickson, and Stan Fredrickson. By Harbor the Gold, Couldabenthewhisky is one of four Washington-bred horses in the race; the other four were bred in Kentucky. Gallyn Mitchell has the riding assignment.\r\nWinter Warlock has two wins and three seconds in five starts. He&rsquo;s one of two Tim McCanna-trained runners in the race, joined by recent maiden winner Carr Creek. In his last start two weeks ago, Winter Warlock finished second, a length behind Mack&rsquo;s Gold Bullet, after pressing the pace in the restricted Dennis Dodge Stakes at 6 1/2 furlongs. He&rsquo;ll be ridden by Kevin Krigger.\r\nOthers in the field are Tweetie Pie, the only filly in the race and a likely longshot after winning a $30,000 maiden claimer in her last start; and Giuseppe G, who was a distant fifth in the Dennis Dodge as a 36-1 outsider.
