The Terang & District Co-Op Pacing Cup boasts one of the most impressive honour rolls of any country cup and it will almost certainly gain another high-quality occupant this Saturday when the 2009 edition is run.

A couple of Group 1 winners, some emerging stars and several leading country cup performers have accepted for the $25,000 event, won recently by two-time Australian Horse of the Year Sokyola (2003 and 2005), three-time Inter Dominion champion Blacks A Fake (2006) and former star youngster Sir Galvinator (2007)

Pay Me Christian and Bold Cruiser are those who have tasted success at the highest level engaged in the 2680-metre mobile event.

Pay Me Christian, who set a then 1:52.8 Australasian mile record in the 2006 Newscastle Mile, will roll from outside the front row (seven), while Tasmanian Cup winner Bold Cruiser is outside the second line (12).

St Arnaud Cup winner Few Good Men (five), Ararat Cup champ Count De Lira (eight) and Stawell Cup hero Keayang Hanover (nine) are those that will chase their second country cup of the season at Terang.

Also engaged is emerging gun Make Waves (four), last Saturday night's impressive Angelique Club Cup winner Broadway Play (10) and last year's Inter Dominion fifth placegetter Sequoiahs Spirit (11).

The Terang & District Co-Op Pacing Cup is race seven on the nine-event card and will be run at 9.32pm.

The feature support race is the Barastoc Terang Trotters Cup at 8.30pm, which has also attracted a strong field.

Split Image and Pepperell Dancer share the 30-metre backmark in the 2680-metre standing start test.

Gavlenn Ryoshy, Crescent Glory, Just Glorious, La Mosca and Mental Power comprise a strong 10m line, while reigning Victorian 3YO Trotter of the Year, Danny Bouchea, is the class runner of the front.
