AUBURN, Wash. (April 30, 2017) –Blue Law collared Rallying Market in the final furlong and drew off for a 1 ¾-length victory Sunday in the $11,300 Muckleshoot Casino Purse for 3-year-olds and up at Emerald Downs.

With leading rider Rocco Bowen aboard, Blue Law covered six furlongs in 1:08.34 and paid $9.80, $3 and $2.40. Candi Tollett and owner John Parker—who also combined for a pair of wins Saturday—are the winning trainer and owner.
