Yonkers Raceway’s entry box Monday afternoon offered up three-year-olds — four colts and four geldings — for the 64th Yonkers Trot.

The entry box also found 11 three-year-olds — eight colts and three-geldings — for the 63rd Messenger Stakes.

Thus, the second jewels of their respective Triple Crown find the Trot as a ‘one-dash-for-the-cash’ event, while the Messenger has a pair of $40,000 eliminations races this Saturday night.

Alphabetically, here are the entrants for Yonkers Trot No. 64:

First elim
1. Babes Dig Me
2. Wild Bill
3. JK Wildfire
4. Topville Olympian
5-Nutcracker Sweet

Second elim

2. Winston
3. Decoy
4. Jimmy Freight ($30,000 supplement)
