70 remain eligible to Pepsi North America Cup

MILTON, April 23, 2018 – Woodbine Entertainment today released the 70 three-year-old pacers still eligible to this year’s Pepsi North America Cup following the April 15 sustaining payment.

A total of 79 horses were originally nominated to this year’s Pepsi North America Cup. The first sustaining payment (March 15) saw just four horses drop out, while the most recent payment (April 15) reduced the number of eligible horses by just five.

Lost In Time and Stay Hungry, last season’s award-winners, continue to headline the group of 70 eligible three-year-old pacers. Both standouts are Pennsylvania Sired and reported to be aimed towards competing in a PASS (Pennsylvania Sires Stakes) event on May 21 at Pocono.

Lost In Time is trained by Jimmy Takter, while Stay Hungry is trained by Tony Alagna.

The last week saw many Cup eligible horses qualify and it’s expected many more will resurface this coming weekend.

As of April 24, 43 of the 70 eligible sophomores have either raced or qualified in 2018.

Sires Stakes competition will be the route many Cup eligible horses take in preparation for the Pepsi North America Cup eliminations on June 9.

Here is date and location for the first Sires Stakes event in each State/Province with a Cup eligible:

Pennsylvania (33 eligible) – May 5 at The Meadows

Ohio (4 eligible) – May 6 at Miami Valley

Ontario (18 eligible) – May 20 at Flamboro

Indiana (3 eligible) – May 25 at Hoosier

New York (12 eligible) – May 28 at Vernon

This year’s Pepsi North America Cup will be the 35th edition of Canada’s richest harness race. The $1 million race will take place on Saturday, June 16 at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Tickets to this year’s Pepsi North America Cup can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
