A record 133 horses have been nominated to the 26th edition of the $1.5 million Pepsi North America Cup, set for Saturday, June 27 at Mohawk Racetrack.

The previous high came in 2005, when 112 three-year-old pacers were named. The 133 total is 41 more than last year when 92 were kept eligible, representing a 31 per cent increase.

Headlining this year's group of nominees is 2008 Metro Pace and Woodrow Wilson champion Major In Art, Breeders Crown champion Well Said and Governors Cup winner Nebupanezzar.

Also on the list are late bloomers Art Colony and Captain Sir, along with Maritime Sires Stakes champion Deep Finesse, who was recently sold to American interests.

The Pepsi North America Cup will be held two weeks later than last season with eliminations set for Saturday, June 20.

Sustaining payments will be due on March 16, April 15 and May 15.
