The Woodbine Entertainment Group has announced that 77 horses have been nominated to the 29th edition of the $1.5-million Pepsi North America Cup, one of harness racing's most prestigious events, set for Saturday, June 16, 2012 at Mohawk Racetrack

.

Headlining this year's group of nominees is the 2011 O'Brien Award two-year-old champion, Warrawee Needy. Last year in his rookie campaign, the Carl Jamieson trainee won nine of his 12 races and banked $535,000.

Sweet Lou, the 2011 Breeders Crown champion and fastest two-year-old in history courtesy of his 1:49 speed badge, is also on the list and is one of the early favourites for the race. A Rocknroll Dance, the richest two-year-old pacing colt on the continent in 2011 with $858,961 in earnings, is also nominated.

Also named is Simply Business, who rocketed to a 1:50.1 mark at Mohawk Racetrack, when capturing the $1-million Metro Pace.

The Pepsi North America Cup eliminations are set for Saturday, June 9. Sustaining payments will be due on March 15, April 15 and May 15.
