TORONTO, March 27 - An elite group of 70 horses remain eligible to the 31st edition of the Pepsi North America Cup, one of harness racing's most prestigious events and Canada's richest harness race with a $1 million final.

The one mile pace for three-year-olds at Mohawk Racetrack, is scheduled for Saturday, June 14.

Headlining this year's group of nominees is the Dan Patch Award winner and undefeated He's Watching, who set two world records last season along with six track records for trainer and co-owner David Menary.

The son of American Ideal boasts a 1:50 speed badge along with $291,722 in earnings.

O'Brien Award winner Arthur Blue Chip, who banked $400,120 last season, also remains a top contender for this year's prize.

The son of first-crop sire Shadow Play amassed a 6-2-1 record from 11 starts last season. He capped off his year as the richest two-year-old colt pacer.

Luck Be Withyou, the 2013 Breeders Crown champion, is also on the list and one of the early favourites for the race.

National Debt, who remains undefeated in his career after capturing the Buddy Gilmour Memorial at The Meadowlands, is also on the list of nominees.

The Pepsi North America Cup eliminations are set for Saturday, June 7.
