Bee A Magician, Captaintreacherous and I Luv The Nitelife, who have combined to win 35 of 37 races and $3.67-million this year, lead the list of 156 horses entered Tuesday for the 12 Breeders Crown events at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Eliminations are unnecessary for the three-year-old filly pacers and Open Trot, which both received nine entries. Eliminations for two-year-old male and female trotters plus two-year-old female pacers are Friday at Pocono Downs, with the remaining elims Saturday. First-race post time is 6:30 p.m. both nights.

All 12 finals – with purses totaling $5.6 million – will be Saturday, October 19, at Pocono Downs. Post time is 5:00 p.m. for the first race.

Bee A Magician, a three-year-old filly trotter, is 13-for-13 this year for trainer Richard ‘Nifty’ Norman and owners Melvin Hartman, Herb Liverman and David McDuffee. She enters the Breeders Crown off a win in the Ontario Sires Stakes Super Finals on September 28 at Mohawk Racetrack, which pushed her seasonal earnings to $1.09-million. Other victories this season include the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks and $356,981 Elegantimage Stakes.

A daughter of the stallion Kadabra out of the mare Beehive, Bee A Magician is the fastest three-year-old trotter this season, with a clocking of 1:51 that came in winning the $265,500 Delvin Miller Memorial on July 13 at the Meadowlands Racetrack. The time is the fastest ever for a three-year-old filly trotter.

Bee A Magician has won 23 of 26 lifetime starts and earned $1.86-million – the most ever for a filly trotter at ages two and three combined. She finished third in last season’s Breeders Crown for two-year-old filly trotters, which was won by To Dream On. Bee A Magician is the second of two eliminations for the three-year-old filly trotters, starting from Post 3.

To Dream On, who on Sunday won the $205,100 Kentucky Filly Futurity final, is in the second of the two eliminations. To Dream On is one of 12 previous Breeders Crown champions entered in this year’s event.

Three-year-old colt pacer Captaintreacherous is a nose from perfect this year, with 10 wins in 11 starts and $1.61-million. He is trained by Tony Alagna for the Captaintreacherous Racing ownership group. He heads to the Breeders Crown following his victory Saturday in a $215,500 division of the Tattersalls Pace at the Red Mile.

Other wins this year for the son of Somebeachsomewhere-Worldly Treasure include the $1-miilion North America Cup, the $635,750 Meadowlands Pace, the $500,000 Max C. Hempt Memorial and the $360,211 Cane Pace. His only loss came by a nose to Sunshine Beach in the $500,000 Battle of the Brandywine in a world-record 1:47.4 mile.

Captaintreacherous has won 18 of 21 career races and earned $2.53-million. He finished third in last season’s Breeders Crown for two-year-old male pacers. He is in the second of two eliminations for the three-year-old male pacers and will leave from Post 4.

I Luv The Nitelife, a three-year-old filly pacer, has won 12 of 13 races this year and earned $968,337 for trainer Chris Ryder and owners Richard and Joanne Young. A daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Lisjune, she most recently won the $154,650 Jugette final at the Delaware County Fair on September 18 for her 11th consecutive victory.

Other triumphs include the $384,044 Fan Hanover Stakes, the $350,000 Valley Forge and the $300,000 James M. Lynch Memorial. For her career, she has won 16 of 23 starts and $1.65-million. She finished second in last season’s Breeders Crown for two-year-old filly pacers, which was won by Somwherovrarainbow.

Eliminations are unnecessary for the three-year-old filly pacers, so the final was drawn Tuesday. I Luv The Nitelife will start from Post 7; Somwherovrarainbow leaves from Post 8. Shebestingin, who on Sunday paced the fastest mile in history by a female pacer when she won a division of the Glen Garnsey Memorial in 1:47, drew Post 5.

The Open Trot, Mare Trot and Mare Pace each have three past Breeders Crown winners.

Arch Madness, who makes his record-tying sixth Breeders Crown appearance, Intimidate and Uncle Peter all are previous trophy winners competing in this year’s Open Trot. Arch Madness became the ninth trotter in history to surpass $4-million in career earnings when he won the Allerage Farms Open Trot on Sunday at the Red Mile.

In the Mare Trot, Cedar Dove, Check Me Out and Maven have won titles, as have Mare Pace contenders Anndrovette, Economy Terror and Monkey On My Wheel. Anndrovette is seeking her third consecutive Breeders Crown, a feat never accomplished in any of the open divisions.

Sweet Lou, in the Open Pace, completes the list of previous Breeders Crown champions. The Open Pace also includes Foiled Again, who is the richest pacer in harness racing history, with $5.38 million.

Following are the fields with listed drivers and trainers. Elimination purses are $25,000.
