With a  total of 23 three-year-olds competing this Saturday in three $75,000 divisions of the Somebeachsomewhere plus the $159,000 and $178,000 finals of the SBOA Stakes for three-year-old pacing and trotting filly respectively, Mohawk Racetrack has a star-studded lineup for harness racing fans..

These will be the final tune-ups for the pacing colts and gelding heading towards the eliminations of the $1-million Pepsi North America Cup, set for Saturday June 7 with the final on June 14.

The first division boasts multiple-sub-1:50 performer JK Endofanera (PP6, Brian Sears, and the 2013 Breeders Crown champ Luck Be Withyou (PP7, Ron Pierce).

The second division features The Diplomat winner Somewhere In L A (PP2, Steve Condren, who is not N.A. Cup-eligible) and the horse that last beat him, Somestarsomewhere (PP7, Brian Sears)

After his first lifetime loss last weekend, Hes Watching (PP5, Jody Jamieson) looks to atone for that loss against seven rivals, most notable 2013 Metro winner Boomboom Ballykeel (PP3, Sylvain Filion) and 2013 OSS Super Final winner Bugger Bruiser (PP7, Anthony MacDonald). Also in the limelight this year is Let's Drink On It (PP6) who has two straight impressive victories already this season.

The Somebeachsomewhere divisions will go off as races 3, 8 and 10 on Saturday with a first race post time of 7:25 p.m.

The colt pacers share the Saturday spotlight with finals of the SBOA Stakes for fillies. The sophomore pacers go for $159,287 in Race 2, while the trotting lasses will compete for a $178,287 prize in Race 5.
