Four harness racing 3-year-olds have been entered for Yonkers Raceway's Art Rooney Pace as well as its companion event, the Lismore. Both races shall be contested a week from Saturday night, June 12.

The purse of the Rooney is $250,000, while the Lismore goes for $150,000.

The entrants, in alphabetical order, are (Rooney, colts) He's Gorgeous, One More Laugh, Tobago Cays and We Will See and (Lismore, fillies) A and G's Princess, Aries Angel, Dancinwiththestarz and It's De Lovely.

"We are obviously very disappointed at the lack of interest shown in two of our premier races," general manager Bob Galterio said. "We're going to re-evalaute both events, but we have to receive better support from owners and trainers for them to continue in any form."

Post positions are to be drawn next Tuesday afternoon.
