The Sky Channel Nights Of Glory might have finished up at Moonee Valley on Saturday night, but top-class harness action continues this Saturday night with the running of the Terang & District Co-Op Pacing Cup. The $25,000 has attracted a quality field, including a number of the stars of the show from BIG6 Hunter Cup night.

Bold Cruiser, Keayang Hanover and Ultimate Mark all finished down the track in the BIG6 Hunter Cup but they are among the 29 nominations for the 2680-metre event.

Impressive Hunter Cup night winner Broadway Play and Zenad have also been entered, along with former Australasian mile record holder Pay Me Christian and the horse Zenad pipped on Saturday night, Make Waves.

Count De Lira, Few Good Men, Genuine Star and Thats Mister Ali, already winners of legs of this season's Victorian Country Cup Carnival, are also among the nominations.

Terang Harness Racing Club secretary Liz Clarke said it was great to see the tradition of good horses targeting the Terang Cup continuing in 2009.

"We're lucky that we generally get a very strong field for our Cup, with horses likes Blacks A Fake and Sokyola having won it in recent years, and fortunately that theme looks like continuing this year," Mrs Clarke said.

"We're delighted with the strength of nominations we have received again this year, not just for the Cup but the support races as well and look forward to another sensational night of racing."

The Terang & District Co-Op Cup is the headline event on a nine-race card that also features the Barastoc Terang Trotters Cup. Danny Bouchea, Split Image, Pepperell Dancer and Just Glorious are among the entries for that race.

Acceptances for Saturday night's meeting close at 8.30am tomorrow with fields declared later that morning.
