Del-Re National Hunter Cup

 

The greats of the sport will chase immortality at Tabcorp Park Melton on February 4 when they attempt to etch their names on Harness Racing Victoria’s greatest cup.

Lazarus, reigning champion Lennytheshark and Smolda are but some of the many stars expected to centre their summers around the $500,000 Del-Re National A.G. Hunter Cup, hoping to join the likes of Blossom Lady, Popular Alm and Gammalite as immortals.

The unforgettable Saturday night at the track promises to reach even greater heights this summer with the addition of the $300,000 Pryde’s Easifeed Great Southern Star, the richest trotters race in the Southern Hemisphere.

Its rescheduling bulges the night’s stake money to $1.32 million, which includes the $200,000 VHRSC Victoria Derby and $100,000 Del-Re National 4Y0 Bonanza. And the big stakes continue in the $100,000 Alabar Ladyship Cup, which has been elevated to offer a second Group 1 Victorian mares race.

Need more? Off the track the party will continue with an on-course DJ setting the beat throughout mini marquees, the beer garden and after party.

The Own The Moment Marquee will ensure those who venture to Melton to celebrate their equine heroes on the biggest stage can do so in VIP style, while dining packages and a host of children’s activities mean there will be something for everywhere.

Love summer? Love the trots.
