Noosa Beach Heavy Choice at Emerald

Noosa Beach drew the outside post-position and will be heavily favored Sunday as the road to the Longacres Mile begins with the $50,000 Governor's Handicap at 6-½ furlongs.

A field of 11 runners—largest ever for a Governor's Handicap at Emerald Downs—is entered in the first stakes of the season for older horses.
Trainer Doris Harwood said she was elated with the outside draw, and said the 5-year-old gelding couldn't be any sharper.

“Wow, he's doing incredibly well,” Harwood said of Noosa Beach. “He's fit, he's bigger this year, and there's just an air about him. In Canada (for last month's George Royal Stakes), he went in that walking-ring like he owned it.
