Twenty-two handicap horses—including stakes winners from Washington,
Canada, the Midwest and California—have been nominated to the $250,000
Longacres Mile at Emerald Downs.
The 75th running of the Grade
III Mile—the latest chapter in one of the Northwest's iconic sporting
events—is set for Sunday, Aug. 22. The program also includes the
$75,000 Emerald Distaff for fillies and mares, with Hall of Fame jockey
Eddie Delahoussaye to serve as Honoray Steward for The Mile.
