Longacres Mile Nominations

Emerald Downs Director of Racing Bret Anderson has released a list of 25 horses* nominated to the 74th running of the $300,000 Longacres Mile (GIII), to be run Sunday, Aug. 16.

The 2009 renewal of the Northwest's richest and most prestigious race is the annual centerpiece of the 91-day meeting and caps a weekend that includes the $100,000 Emerald Distaff for older fillies and mares and the $75,000 Washington Oaks for 3-year-old fillies.

The 25 Mile nominations (*pending fax or late mail) suggest that the starting gate will again be full for the eight-furlong classic. Since 2000, the Longacres Mile has averaged over 11 starters with full fields of 12 in both 2007 and 2008. Weights for this year's Mile will be released Saturday, Aug. 8, and with high weights preferred, would decide who gets in the race. And once again, the winner of the Longacres Mile automatically qualifies for the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Santa Anita Park.
