Longacres Mile Anchors Emerald Stakes Schedule


Emerald Downs

Officials at Emerald Downs in Auburn, Washington, have released a revised stakes schedule for a 44-day meeting that runs June 22 through Oct. 4.

The 85th running of the $100,000 GIII Longacres Mile S., as usual, is the focal point of the meet, but has been moved back to be run Sept. 13 on a program that also includes the Emerald Distaff S. The richest of the 14 remaining stakes is the $60,000 Gottstein Futurity S. for the 2-year-olds on closing day. The schedule features six stakes for 3-year-olds and up (three apiece for older horses and older fillies and mares), four stakes for 3-year-olds (two apiece for colts and geldings and fillies) and five for 2-year-olds (two apiece for colts and geldings and fillies, and one open).
