See You at Peelers takes on the boys in the Rooney

The unbeaten See You at Peelers will take on the boys this
time.

Harness racing’s brightest star puts a 15 for 15 record on the
line Saturday night in the $307,734 Art Rooney Pace for 3-year-olds
at Yonkers Raceway.

This will be the first time last year’s champion 2-year-old
pacing filly faces colts and geldings. She won all 13 in 2010, a
campaign that concluded with a victory in the Breeders Crown.

See You at Peelers kicked off the new year with a pair of wins
at Tioga Downs in Nichols, N.Y., including a world-record equaling
win on Sunday night in the Empire Breeders Classic.

Now comes a new challenge. She is the first filly to contest the
Rooney since its inception in 1989.

See You at Peelers tops a three-horse entry along with
Rollwithitharry and Line Officer as the 3-5 favorites. They are
half the six horse field.

See You at Peelers has post No. 5 with Marcus Johansson set to
drive for trainer Jimmy Takter.

”She’s never been totally extended,” Johansson said. ”I did
have to go faster than I would have liked with her at Tioga, but
she came out of race in good shape and we’re all looking forward to
Saturday.”
