The pills played out, shall we say, rather interestingly. Real Nice and Foiled Again drew post position numbers seven and eight, respectively, for Saturday night's $455,000 final of Yonkers Raceway's George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series.
The complete lineup, with declared drivers...1-Blatantly Good (George Brennan), 2-Art Z (Brett Miller), 3-Atochia (Ron Pierce), 4-Fitz's Z Tam (Brian Sears), 5-Strand Hanover (Luc Ouellette), 6-Nob Hill High (Jordan Stratton), 7-Real Nice (Jason Bartlett), 8-Foiled Again (Yannick Gingras).
Atochia and Foiled Again race as a common-ownership entry.
Note that the final is Race 9 on the 12-race card (approximate post 10 p.m.). There is also a $100,000 series consolation (8th race), and a $50,000 Levy-eligible event (6th race).
Saturday's $297,000 final of the Blue Chip Matchmaker (7th race, approximate post 9:20 p.m.) finds See You at Peelers leaving from the pylons.
The complete draw, with drivers...1-See You at Peelers (Sears), 2-Rocklamation (Gingras), 3-Anndrovette (Tim Tetrick), 4-Fox Valley Sage (Cat Manzi), 5-Ginger and Fred (Bartlett), 6-Billmar Scooter (Eric Goodell), 7-Chancey Lady (Andy Miller), 8-Western Silk (Brennan).
Rocklamation and Ginger and Fred race as a common-ownership entry, while Anndrovette and Chancey Lady go uncoupled due to bona fide separate ownership.
A $75,000 series consolation is carded as the fifth race.
The Levy and Matchmaker are the sport's two richest North American races of the season to date. (Yonkers)
