The five weeks of preliminaries begin next Saturday, March, 18th, with each race in each leg worth $50,000.

Bit of a Legend N, an 8-year-old Down Under son of Bettor's Delight, swept through the series a season ago. He won the $609,000 final (1:51, matching stakes record) a week after his scintillating, dead-heat with Wiggle It Jiggleit (world-record 'heater' of 1:51.2).

Peter Tritton trains and Jordan Stratton drives for owner Harry von Knoblauch.

Other notable eligibles (alphabetically) include...All Bets Off, Bettor's Edge, Caviart Luca, Mach it So, McWicked, Missile J, Provocativeprincen, Rockin' Ron, Soto, Take it Back Terry, Vegas Vacation and Wakizashi Hanover.

The Levy's companion event, the ladies-only Blue Chip Matchmaker, seduced 28 of the best distaffers in training.

Among the fast femmes (alphabetically) are...Bedroomconfessions, Devil Child, Krispy Apple, Mach it a Par and Sell a Bit N. The '17 edition was guaranteed a new leading lady after Yagonnakissmeornot, last season's victress, has begun her second career as a broodmare.

That series, also with five prelim legs (at $40,000 per race), begins Friday night, March 17th.

Finals (and consolations) for both the Levy and Matchmaker are set for Saturday night, Apr. 22 (purses TBA). A complete list of eligibles accompany this release.
