The current falls on Emerald Downs’ 72-day meeting with the $65,000 Gottstein Futurity on Sunday, Sept. 24.

Fourteen juveniles are nominated to the season’s biggest race for 2-year-olds, to be contested at 1 1/16 miles, with the winner earning $35,750.

Elliott Bay, winner of the WTBOA Lads and runner-up in the Washington Cup Juvenile Colts, is the most accomplished runner nominated to the race. Recent allowance winner My Heart Awakens and Washington Cup third-place winner Trump Itz are also top contenders.

Three fillies – Diamonds R, Frisky Bear and Sea N Redd – are nominated to the Gottstein. Fillies traditionally have fared well in the race, winning three of the last 10 runnings including Blazinbeauty last year.
