Coming up: Emerald Gold, third in the Grade I Del Mar Debutante Stakes on Sept. 3, is the 5-to-2 morning-line favorite in a field of 12 2-year-old fillies for Thursday's Grade III Jessamine Stakes going 11⁄16 miles on the turf.
■ Tahoe Lake swept past Trend in deep stretch to win the $52,000 Gainesway Farm Purse by 2 lengths Wednesday. Trained by Ken McPeek and ridden by Manny Cruz, Tahoe Lake completed the 11⁄16 miles on a firm turf course in 1:42.02. The victory was the second in nine starts for the 5-year-old gelded son of Know Heights and increased his career bankroll to $86,215.
■ Grade II winner Dancinginherdreams makes her first start since finishing ninth in the Grade I Ashland at Keeneland in April when she faces 11 rivals in Thursday's seventh race, a 61/2-furlong allowance test on the main track.
■ Jockey Julien Leparoux, who was involved in a spill in the stretch of Sunday's Bourbon Stakes, was off his mounts Wednesday in order to get further treatment on his right hand. "He is having another day of therapy," Leparoux's agent, Steve Bass, said. "There are no breaks, no tears, but it is still sore. He is going to breeze a horse in the morning and then ride tomorrow afternoon. That's the plan right now." Leparoux was thrown into the infield when his mount in the Bourbon, Here Comes Frazier, shied and hit the rail nearing the eighth pole.
