Top field for Pacing Cup

Sunday's Stawell Florist Lillies and Lattes Pacing Cup has attracted a top field for the Group three $30,000 race. Heading this top field is Gunbower Cup winner Veranjee, trained by Ross Sugars and to be driven by his son Greg Sugars. The Glen Douglas trained Pacific Soul goes into the race winning his last two starts at Melton. The former New Zealand pacer has not disappointed his new owners since landing here late last year winning eight races in the past 12 months. Stablemate Master Joy, brother of last year's Stawell Pacing Cup winner Captain Joy, has also been in good form and trainer Sue Hunter is sure to have the lightly raced gelding in great condition. Other chances in the race are former Queensland pacer Our White Knight, who has only had four Victorian starts with a third in the Kilmore Cup and has tasted Cup success winning the $40,000 Redcliffe Cup last year. Composed is another pacer that burst onto the scene as a youngster winning the Tatlow and several other races before moving into free-for-all company and is now finding that form he had. The local chance in Sunday's Stawell Florist Lillies and Lattes Pacing Cup is the Brooke Hanson trained Arber, who has been unlucky in his last few starts. Arber has contested several of the Country Cups this season and his best has been a fourth in the Nyah Cup last month after having no luck in the Maryborough Cup. The first race on Sunday starts at 5.l8pm with the Cup set to start at 7.42pm. The Trackside Bistro is open from 5pm. The kids are going to be looked after with entertainment in the form of jumping castle, face painting, free show bags and Santa making an appearance. The honourary owner competition will also be run with names drawn out for a horse in the Cup and the winner receiving $500 cash, plus a photo with the horse and a framed print with your name listed as the owner. It will be a great evening of harness racing action and the Stawell Harness Racing Club looks forward to seeing a big crowd attend and enjoy the evening.
