YONKERS, NY, Monday, April 15, 2019-After five preliminary rounds, post positions have been drawn for Yonkers Raceway's harness racing finals of the Blue Chip Matchmaker and George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series.

Both go this Saturday night (Apr. 20th), worth $401,600 and $662,800, respectively, by far 2019's richest North American races to date.

Post time for the 12-race card is the usual 6:50 PM, with the co-features presented as race 9 (Matchmaker) and 11 (Levy).

The 11th edition of the Matchmaker autodrew as such for the Free-For-All pacing mares...

1-Kaitlyn N (Matt Kakaley), 2-Apple Bottom Jeans (Corey Callahan), 3-Feelin' Red Hot (George Brennan), 4-Don't Think Twice A (Jason Bartlett), 5-Bettor Joy N (Dexter Dunn), 6-Shartin N (Tim Tetrick), 7-Ideal Lifestyle A (Driver TBA), 8-Seaswift Joy N (Jim Marohn Jr.).

Shartin N is the defending champ.

It's the 32nd Levy, a Free-For-All for the boys again honoring the memory of the Hall of Fame Founder of Roosevelt Raceway.

The roster reads as such...

1-Anythingforlove A (Joe Bongiorno), 2-More the Better N (Scott Zeron), 3-JJ Flynn (Tetrick), 4-The Downtown Bus (Tetrick also listed), 5-Western Fame (Dan Dube), 6-Rodeo Rock (Andrew McCarthy), 7-The Wall (Andy Miller), 8-Ideal Jimmy (Brent Holland).

Dube goes for a Levy hat trick, having won (with trainer Rene Allard) the last couple with the now-retired Keystone Velocity.

All 16 finalists race uncoupled. Saturday's card also includes series consolations, going for $75,000 (Matchmaker, 8th race) and $100,000 (Levy, 10th race), along with a pair of $50,000 events for Levy eligibles (races 4 and 6).
