Two elims are slated for Saturday night at The Meadowlands for the track's signature event, The Meadowlands Pace for three-year-olds.

Leading the first $50,000 elimination is North America Cup winner JK Endofanera. The Ron Burke trainee is 4-0-1 in five starts this year, his most recent a dominant 1:48.4 win in the N.A. Cup at Mohawk Racetrack on June 14. He tuned up for Saturday with a solid 1:51 qualifier last Friday at the Big M.

The horse that JK Endofanera defeated as the public choice in the North America Cup, Tellitlikeitis, looks to be one of the top contenders from the second elimination. That son of Well Said has two wins in three starts in 2014 for trainer Jimmy Takter, looking for his first Meadowlands Pace title.

Here are the fields for Saturday's Meadowlands Pace eliminations with listed drivers. The final is set for Saturday, July 12 with an estimated purse of $650,000. The top five finishers from each elim advance to the final.
