Field of NAR Mercury Cup

13 horses have been entered to the Mercury Cup at NAR Morioka.

Ex-JRA horse Summit Stone, who was 9 for 14 at the NAR circuit, comes here off a two-straight victory at Ohi. He breaks from post 7.

Solitary King, one of the five JRA entries, was victorious in last year's Mercury Cup, but he has since then missed the winner's circle. Fifth in the NAR grade one Teio Sho was his latest effort. He drew post 3.

The Mercury Cup for 3-year-olds and upward is one of the NAR grade three race which are open to JRA horses, running over 2,000 meters on dirt. The first prize is 23 milion jp yen(approx. 230,000 US dollars). The post time will be at 4:30 p.m. JST on Monday, July 21.
