Nominatons for the upcoming Levy Series at Yonkers are off 17% from 2014, while Matchmaker nominations are down a whopping 41%. There were 39 mares nominated to this series last year, but only 23 were staked for the 2015 edition.
The situation is similar to what is happening in the Petticoat and Sagamore Hill Series at Yonkers. In 2014 the first leg of the former featured five divisions consisting of 37 fillies and mares, while this year there were only two divisions of seven each.
The Sagamore Hill started out with eight splits involving 63 horses on opening night last year, while there were only five splits involving 38 starters this year.
The Meadowlands has already cancelled the Artistic Vision, Giant Victory and Ima Lula due to lack of interest.
