The 2011 Longacres Mile gets underway at Emerald Downs on Sunday afternoon. Here's all you need to know about the race.

The 2011 Longacres Mile gets underway on Saturday afternoon at Emerald Downs, and one horse has a chance to make it back-to-back titles. Noosa Beach is the favorite as defending champion of Washington's premier race, and could become just the third horse to win consecutive Longacres Miles. And while Noosa Beach is the headliner, the 12 horse field is packed, creating what should be an excellent race.

Noosa Beach will start one gate from the outside at Emerald Downs, drawing the No. 11 post position. Just outside the favorite is Awesome Gem, who holds the second-best morning line odds. The favorites, at least by the betting lines, are stacked on the outside of the gate, creating for an interesting dynamic within the race.
