The 3-year-olds are in the spotlight with a pair of stakes races Sunday at Auburn’s Emerald Downs.

Fillies will compete in the $50,000 Irish Day Handicap at one mile, and colts and geldings will vie in the $50,000 Coca-Cola Handicap, also at one mile.

Trainer Tom Wenzel will likely have the top three choices in the Irish Day Handicap after stablemates Stopshoppingdebbie, Goin to the Window and Blueberry Smoothie went 1-2-3 in last month’s Seattle Handicap.

Carving is the 5-2 morning-line favorite for the Coca-Cola Handicap.
