A.G. Hunter Cup preview 2022

On Saturday night Australian time, it's Victoria's biggest harness race, the time-honoured A.G. Hunter Cup. The Inter Dominion has its heats and final format, Menangle has the speedy Miracle Mile, Melton has the A.G. Hunter Cup - a tough one-off race which normally gathers the best of Australasia. This year there's no fly-in visitors from WA or NZ but it is still a quality field. The draw is a crucial factor in harness racing and unfortunately this year, the balls have landed in a fashion that leaves the running order looking crystal clear. But sometimes when there's half a million dollars on the line, common sense goes out the window. Many champions have won this race over the years so if you're becoming an old fart like me, you might like to reminisce on some of the great winners. ---------------------- DEL-RE NATIONAL A.G.
