Stawell Harness Racing Club and the Martin family will honour the late Ray Martin on Monday with the running of the Ray Martin Memorial Pace.
Martin was a great supporter of harness racing for most of his life and his son Owen has continued the tradition of the Martin family being involved with harness racing as an owner and trainer.
The Martin family have donated a trophy to the winning connections of the race on Monday, open to C4 to C5 pacers.
Last year's winner Amajorfrost launched his career after winning the race and went on to win several more races before being sold to Tasmania to continue his career.
This year's race has attracted a top field with local chances from the Great Western stables of Grant Campbell and Kerryn Manning.
The Noble Steed has just returned to racing this season and is set to break through for a win.
Campbell has Well Oiled Lombo entered and the horse has been going well this season.
Michelle Wight has Wheatsheaf Avaball entered and will be a chance.
Grins Rendition will be a big chance after running some big races against stronger company in his last few starts.
The David Lewis trained Twentyfivetolife heads to Stawell to try and score another win after winning at Stawell's last race meeting in March.
A great day of harness racing action will be on offer on Monday with the Trackside Bistro open from noon for meals and snacks during the afternoon. Entry is free.
