The connections of 56 three-year-old pacers have made the first sustaining payment to remain eligible to the 34th Pepsi North America Cup.

The $1 million Pepsi North America Cup is Canada’s richest harness race and will take place on Saturday, June 17 at Mohawk Racetrack.

A total of 60 three-year-olds were originally nominated and all but four have been kept eligible through the first sustaining payment.

Ray Schnittker trainee Huntsville and Brian Brown trainee Downbytheseaside headline the group of eligible three-year-olds. Both colts are sired by 2008 Pepsi North America Cup champion Somebeachsomewhere and both set World Records during their rookie campaigns.
