Rivalry resumes in Boeing Handicap
One of Emerald Downs’ hottest rivalries — Exclusive Diva vs. E Z Kitty— continues Sunday when older fillies or mares meet in the $50,000 Boeing Handicap at one mile.
Exclusive Diva and E Z Kitty have traded stakes decisions at the meet, with E Z Kitty winning by 2 lengths in the 6-furlong Hastings Handicap May 12, and Exclusive Diva winning by 1¼-lengths in the 6½-furlong Washington State Legislators Stakes on June 9.
Exclusive Diva also beat E Z Kitty by a neck in a 5½-furlong allowance race, so the 4-year-old daughter of Bernardini has a 2-1 season edge.
Only two others are challenging the top pair: Champagneandcaviar, Emerald Downs’ Top 3-Year-old Filly last year, and Gosailgo.
