The Shannon Price stable will start two horses in Thursday's $50,000 Renshaw Cup at Penrith Paceway. American Legend and Terror Time have both performed well in their home state of Queensland and stable representative Scott Miller is expecting a big performance this week.

"Both of the horses have been racing really well in Queensland and under the grading system up here a horse like Terror Time will have to start competing against the free-for-allers so we have taken the option to get them both to Sydney where they are better assessed and the Renshaw Cup is a great starting point," Miller said.

"We are unsure how long we will stay at this stage, it all depends on how Chevals Clivesdale goes in the heat of the Carousel on Thursday night, if he happened to win his way through to the feature on Len Smith Mile day then we would stay for the fortnight."

Terror Time has won more than $250,000 in his career and has already won 20 races.

"He has won four of his last five starts and his last win saw him break 29 seconds for his final three quarters, he is a really tough horse and Brad Cowen his regular driver will stick with him."

"American Legend on the other hand is a totally different type of horse, he is a speed horse that has to be saved up for the final shot but when driven like that he can be very effective, Blake Fitzpatrick will take the drive on him for us."

Chevals Clivesdale has been in great form in Queensland too and has earned a trip south.

"The Rising Stars series has seen horses moving through the grades race for good prize money but unfortunately there wasn't anything coming up for Chevals Clivesdale so we thought the Carousel looked a good series for him."

"He has got really good speed but he is very versatile as well, he has won four of his last six and his last win he rated 1:57.6 for the 2138 metres."
