For the first time, five millionaire pacers have been nominated for a Western Australia Pacing Cup headed by the American bred Mr Feelgood with a massive $3,274,157 in harness racing stakes, Im Themightyquinn $1,891,506, Lombo Pocket Watch $1,453,908, Washakie $1,290,845 and Has The Answers $1,144,744.

The combined earnings of that quintet of $9,055,160 is more than double the combined earnings of the 20 horses listed to start in last Saturday's Perth Cup at Ascot. That field had combined earnings of $4,310,134.

No mare has been nominated for this year's race and there are no four-year-olds on the list. The 2011 WA Pacing Cup field saw the mare Ima Spicey Lombo finish third and that race also included 4yos Dasher VC and Crombie.

This year will be the 99th running of the State's premier harness race.

The field for the 2012 SEW-Eurodrive WA Pacing Cup will be released on Tuesday 10th January and barriers will be drawn at a special function later that afternoon.
