Victoria introduces new $60k pace, and we want you to #NameTheRace!

11 September 2019

We reckon trots fans are a creative bunch, so we’ve got a plan.

On Saturday night May 2 next year, Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) will stage a new $60,000 race exclusively for horses who have contested the 2019/20 Victorian Trots Country Cups Championship. The Group 2 event will be held at Tabcorp Park Melton over 2760 metres.

The winning horse will receive the prizemoney, plus the winning trainer will get a $10,000 cash bonus, and the winning breeder(s) will receive a service to Vincent courtesy of our friends at Alabar and Nevele R Stud.

Want more? Well, the winning horse will also receive a golden ticket (automatic entry) into the Grand Circuit, $250,000 Group 1 2020 Pryde’s EasiFeed Victoria Cup.

We’re pumped about this race, but what the heck do we call it? Here’s where you come in!
