Bit Of A Legend N, last season’s winner of Yonkers Raceway’s George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series, returned to the scene of his greatest triumph for a first 2017 sighting.

The now-eight-year-old was an even third in the fastest of four qualifiers Saturday night, pacing his mile in 1:55.4 (last quarter :27.2).

“I was very pleased,” regular driver Jordan Stratton said after the pacer's first appearance since last November. “I really didn’t want to go that fast, but he seemed fine.”

Trainer Peter Tritton said he expected to have Bit Of A Legend N in the pari-mutuel entry box next week “even though he’s probably going to be assigned an outside post position.”

A season ago, the Down Under son of Bettors Delight won 13 of his 28 starts with earnings of $723,850.

The 2017 Levy Series begins at Yonkers on Saturday, March 18.
