The annual Traralgon Pacing Cup highlights the next harness racing meeting at Warragul on Monday afternoon, June 29.

A C4-C6 pace over 2210 metres, this year's edition is sponsored by, and carries a Cup to the winning owner.

Run at Warragul for the past 10 years, the Pacing Cup recognises the two decade period from 1975 to 1995 when harness racing was staged at Traralgon.

In the lead-up to the event, the Warragul Harness Racing Club Facebook page is sharing video and photo memories of the Traralgon days.

Top reinsman Chris Alford has won several Traralgon Pacing Cup races both at Traralgon and Warragul, and no doubt will have a drive in this year's event.

Alford also has the honour of having driven the last winner on the old Traralgon track 20 years ago.

Gippsland pacer Artique is another likely competitor in the event - trainer Gary Quinlan won two Pacing Cup's in the old Traralgon days with Pinball and Sharazar.

Gary's father-in-law Gordon Turner won the first race run at Traralgon in November 1975.

An excellent support program is on offer at the June meeting, including the Hygain 3YO Pace Final from heats run at Cranbourne on Sunday, June 21.

Nominations close at Noon on Wednesday, June 24.
