Toronto, ON --- An impressive group of 77 sophomores, including rookie standouts He's Watching, Arthur Blue Chip and Luck Be Withyou, have been nominated to the 31st edition of the Pepsi North America Cup.

One of harness racing's most prestigious events, the C$1 million race is set for Saturday (June 14) at Mohawk Racetrack.

Headlining this year's group of nominees is the Dan Patch Award winner and undefeated He's Watching, who set two world records last season along with six track records for trainer and co-owner David Menary. The son of American Ideal boasts a 1:50 speed badge along with $291,722 in earnings.

Arthur Blue Chip, who banked $390,912 last season along with an O'Brien Award, was the richest rookie pacing colt of 2013. The son of first-crop sire Shadow Play amassed a 6-2-1 record from 11 starts last season.

Luck Be Withyou, the 2013 Breeders Crown champion, is also on the list and one of the early favorites for the race.
