World champion Downbytheseaside drew post position No. 3 for Saturday night’s 27th edition of Yonkers Raceway’s Art Rooney Pace for three-year-olds.

Downbytheseaside, a sophomore son of Somebeachsomewhere, won last week’s lone $40,000 elimination race in 1:52.2. Dave Miller, who won this race consecutively in 2002 (Ashlees Big Guy) and 2003 (No Pan Intended-via disqualification), retains the assignment for trainer Brian Brown and co-owners Country Club Acres, Joe Sbrocco, Richard Lombardo and Diamond Creek Racing.

Downbytheseaside has won both his seasonal starts and has been board-certified in all 15 career tries (10 wins, 3 seconds, 2 thirds, $616,016).

The final of the Rooney goes as the 8th race during the 12-race card (first post 7:10 PM, Rooney post approximately 9:30 p.m.).
