7:18 am on 11 November 2008

The country's top pacers line up at Addington Raceway in Christchurch this afternoon for New Zealand's first million dollar harness race.

The 1.2 million dollar New Zealand Cup is the world's richest standing start free-for-all, and the two horses dominating pre-race betting are Changeover and last year's runner up Monkey King.

The Cup starts at 5.15 and they're predicting a crowd of around 25-thousand.
