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.
