AUBURN — Carving, an impressive winner in his Emerald Downs debut last month, leads a field of nine 3-year-old colts and geldings scheduled to run in Sunday’s $50,000 Auburn Handicap at 6 ½ furlongs.

Carving, who won a $100,000 stakes race last fall at Hollywood Park (Inglewood, Calif.), beat Music of My Soul, last year’s top 2-year-old at Emerald, by 1 ½ lengths in an allowance race last month. Carving is the 8-5 morning-line favorite.

Music of My Soul, a full brother to Emerald Downs great Noosa Beach, is the second choice on the morning line at 4-1.
