Campbellville, - Last weekends elimination winners Tellitlikeitis, Mcwicked and Lyonssomewhere head an extremely competitive field of 10 for the $1 million Pepsi North America Cup, Saturday at Mohawk Racetrack. Darcy Tucker Jersey . The 31st edition of the worlds richest pacing event, showcasing the finest three-year-olds on the continent, will go postward at 10:14 p.m. and will be shown live on TSN. A half-hour preview of the race will air on TSN GO from 9:30-10:00 pm ET, with the race set for TSN from 10:00 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. ET. The winner will earn $500,000. Post positions were drawn today at Mohawk, with Toronto Maple Leafs forward Dave Bolland as the guest drawmaster. Last Saturday, three Cup eliminations were held to determine the field for the final. The three winners earned their connections the right to choose a post position before the balance of the field is drawn. Seventeen of the past 30 Cup winners also won their elimination. Trainer Jimmy Takter, more renowned as a trotting conditioner for such stars as Moni Maker, Kadabra and Malabar Man, but who also directed filly pacer See You At Peelers to championship seasons, has two Cup entrants, Lyonssomewhere and Tellitlikeitis, who both won their elims in ultra-impressive fashion, who both will be solidly backed on Saturday night and who were the first two horses to select a post position. The morning line favorite, at 3-1, is Tellitlikeitis (PP3), bred and owned by Lothlorien of Cheltenham, Ontario, who took his elim in a career best 1:48.4, blowing by heavily-favoured Hes Watching to win by two and one-quarter lengths in only his second start of the year. The regally bred son of 2009 Cup winner Well Said out of champion Kikikatie also won his season opener, a Pennsylvania Sires Stake, at Pocono Downs in May. Lothlorien has shared ownership of three previous Cup winners – Well Said (2009), Rocknroll Hanover (2005) and Red River Hanover (2002). Takter has only started two previous Cup entrants, both in 2012, and finished second with Time To Roll. Driver Brett Miller has two previous Cup drives, finishing second in 2010 with We Will See. "He has wicked speed and hell take you to where you want to go in the mile," said Miller. "I definitely wanted to sit in with him this week (in the elim) and it worked out very well that the two horses I wanted to follow were in front of me." Lyonssomewhere (PP4, 4-1), owned by Geoffrey Lyons Mound of Burford, Ontario is undefeated in five starts. The son of 2008 Cup winner and Horse of the Year Somebeachsomewhere took his elim comfortably in 1:50.1 by one and three-quarter lengths in his first stakes appearance. Hell be driven by Corey Callahan, making only his second Cup drive after finishing fourth with Mr Wiggles in 2009. "I like just about everything about him," said Takter, after the race. "Tonight was his first stakes appearance and thats very rare and he responded. He beat some really good horses. Hes handy and hes the real deal. Its a long year and I wanted to have him fresh for this event and not too many starts." Trainer Casie Coleman, who won the 2010 Cup with Sportswriter, sends out the 7-2 second choice Mcwicked (PP2), who recorded the fastest elim, winning by two lengths in 1:48.3. Owned by SSG Stables of North Boston, New York, Mcwicked, a son of 2002 Cup third place finisher Mcardle, is a five time winner in 14 outings with career earnings of $248,457. Driver Dave Miller has yet to win the Cup in 13 tries, but has twice been second, including last year with a 96-1 shot, Twilight Bonfire. "He was absolutely awesome (in his elim)," said Coleman on Tuesday. "It was the fourth time Ive raced him and every time he keeps getting better and better. Ive been extremely impressed with him. He came out the elim great, hes sound, healthy, his blood is perfect. This horse, so far, knock on wood, hes given me no issues. "It looks like theres a lot of speed in the race. My horse can race either way. Id prefer him coming off a helmet but hes very versatile." Hes Watching (PP7, 5-1), co-owned and trained by David Menary of Rockton, Ontario, finished second to Tellitlikeitis in his elim, but last year won all eight starts en route to a Dan Patch Award as the United States Trotting Associations top two-year-old colt pacer. Winner of a Somebeachsomewhere division on May 31 in a career best 1:49.3, the son of American Ideal will be driven by Tim Tetrick, who won the 2013 Cup with Captaintreacherous. "Im happy with (post) seven," said Menary on Tuesday. "It could have been a lot worse. Well make the best of it. He can race any way. I dont think anybody is going to wire this field. (In the elim), our colt did a lot of work, a big second quarter, putting up big fractions, they raced the whole way. I think it was the toughest elim. "Last year, he did all he could do, two world records, six track records, every-sized track, every which way. Hes just a hulk of a little horse." JK Endofanera (PP9, 10-1), trained by Ron Burke for owner-breeder 3 Brothers Stables of New York City, had a five-race win streak broken in his elim when finishing third as the 1-2 choice to Lyonssomewhere, while drifting out in the stretch. The son of Art Major is the fields leading money winner with $457,057, topped by his win last year in the Governors Cup at the Meadowlands. Hell be driven by Brian Sears, who steered Rocknroll Hanover to victory in the 2005 Cup. Last years Breeders Crown champion, Luck Be Withyou (PP8, 12-1), was third to Tellitlikeitis in his elim, after finishing second to JK Endofanera in a Somebeachsomewhere division the week before in his seasonal debut. Trained by 72-year-old Bill Cass, with his first Cup entrant, for owner John Craig of North York, the son of Western Ideal will be driven by Ron Pierce, who has won two Cups, with Total Truth in 2006 and Well Said in 2009. Lets Drink On It (PP5, 6-1), trained by Joe Seekman, is a seven-time winner in 16 starts and was third to Mcwicked in his elim. A son of Art Official, the only horse to defeat Somebeachsomewhere, hell be piloted by 21-year-old Tyler Smith, who would become the youngest driver to win the Pepsi North America Cup. Sometimes Said (PP10, 20-1), another son of 2009 Cup winner Well Said, finished second to Mcwicked last Saturday, the ninth time in 14 outings hes been the runner-up. Trained by Jim Campbell for owner Fashion Farms and driven by his Hall of Fame brother and record six-time Cup winner John Campbell, Sometimes Said was also second to Luck Be Withyou in last years Breeders Crown. Campbell last won the Cup in 1999 with The Panderosa. Beat The Drum (PP1, 20-1), a son of 2007 Cup winner Tell All, finished second as a 27-1 shot to Lyonssomewhere in his elim for trainer Staffan Lind. Yannick Gingras drives the three-time winner in 17 starts, the most outings by any Cup entrant this year. Completing the field is Ideal Cowboy (PP6, 15-1), who finished fourth to Mcwicked in his elim but drew into the final. A driver has not yet been confirmed for the son of American Ideal, who is trained by Paul Fraley of Anndrovette fame. Felix Potvin Jersey . As if he had been rehearsing it, Vasquez looked around with a grimacing stare as he clinched two fists and flexed his muscles. What do you think of DeMar DeRozans face after he hits a big shot, he was asked moments earlier. Kris Versteeg Maple Leafs Jersey .com) - Stanley Johnson had 18 points and No. http://www.mapleleafsteamstoreonline.com/authentic-bruce-boudreau-maple-leafs-jersey/ . -- Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen took the second-round lead Saturday in the Champions Tours Legends of Golf, teaming for a 6-under 48 in windy conditions on the par-3 Top of the Rock course.NEW YORK -- The New York Mets told Wilmer Flores the starting shortstop job is open next year, and the young infielder might just win the job with his bat. Flores homered twice and drove in six runs for the second time this year, Ruben Tejada capped a four-run fourth inning with a two-run double, and the Mets routed the Miami Marlins 9-1 on Tuesday night to end a three-game skid. "I think what hes done offensively has helped him defensively," manager Terry Collins said of Flores, who has been knocked for his play in the field. Just hours after Commissioner Bud Selig said he was impressed with the manner in which the Mets were rebuilding, the 23-year-old Flores hit a three-run shot in the fifth and a two-run drive in the seventh -- both off reliever Brad Penny. He also had an RBI double in the fourth as the Mets scored their most runs at home since they tallied 11 against the Phillies on July 30. After slowly developing the power stroke the organization thinks he is capable of providing, Flores is 8 for 15 with three homers and 10 RBIs in his last four games. He has six long balls overall. "Maybe it takes a little more time for some people," Flores said about finding his swing against big leaguers. "Im seeing the ball well right now." Bartolo Colon (14-12) bounced back from his shortest outing of the year to pitch 7 2-3 innings for New York, allowing one run and a season-high 12 hits. The only extra-base hit was a double to Reed Johnson, who had three hits. He struck out seven without a walk. "I was able to execute at the right moment to get out of the big inning," the always smiling Colon said through a translator. The Mets and Marlins each have 73 wins in the competition for third place in the NL East. New York has two more losses with 10 games to play. Miami, which outhit the Mets 13-12, has 12 games remaining. The Mets must go 8-2 to avoid their sixth straight losing season. Curtis Granderson had an RBI single among his three hits, and the Mets handed Nathan Eovalddi (6-12) his sixth straight losing decision over seven starts, dating to Aug. Frederik Andersen Jersey. 13. Eovaldi yielded six runs and six hits over 4 1-3 innings. Flores connected off Penny two batters after Eovaldi was pulled in the fifth. Flores also had six RBIs on June 2 at Philadelphia. "Hes in a career record for innings, so maybe he could be running out of gas. I dont know. The ball seems to still be coming out of his hands. Hes just making mistakes," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said of Eovaldi. "Hes making mistakes and theyre making him pay." TRAINERS ROOM Marlins: Giancarlo Stanton was undergoing tests in Miami to determine if he will be able to play again this year. He was hit in the face by a pitch on Thursday and sustained facial fractures, cuts and dental damage. He posted gruesome photos on his Instagram account Tuesday, showing how much he has healed in the five days. The first photo was taken hours after he was beaned. "Well have an official statement tomorrow, but its probably not looking good for him," Redmond said after the game. Mets: CF Juan Lagares left the game because of a hyperextended right elbow before the fifth inning, and he said the elbow was sore. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday. ... RHP Matt Harvey (elbow surgery) felt great a day after his simulated game thrown from the Citi Field mound. "It was a bright, bright spot for us, knowing he is going to be a hundred per cent," Collins said. UP NEXT Marlins RHP Henderson Alvarez (10-6) goes for his fifth career win vs. the Mets. New York RHP Dillon Gee (7-7), however is undefeated in five starts against Miami (3-0, 2.30 ERA). NOISY NEW YORK Redmond and Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart werent too happy with the sounds coming from the street outside the teams midtown hotel. "Thanks New York construction for beginning your jack hammering at 730 am. Im sure everyone appreciates it. .Nofeel .cleanitup," Cosart tweeted. Redmond said he could hear the work from his room on the 40th floor. ' ' '
