SOME of the country's top horses will settle all their disputes, who's the fastest at the Wailoko Road in Sabeto today.

The event, which is the biggest horse racing event in Fiji, is known as the Sabeto Valley Horse Race, hosted by Aviva Farms in conjunction with Sunfilm Productions.

Defending champions Sher Punjab from Nailaga, Ba will face stiff competition from other top bets, Pepsi also of Ba, Dyna Kill of Nadi, Navosa's Digicel Lavo and Jeep Rocket are among the heavyweight horses vying for the $1000 prizemoney at stake for the 2000 metres race. Steema and Playboy from Nadroga are also in the top equation.

Labasa's Mission Babasiga is the lone ranger from the North that will add a different spice to the competition.

Tournament organiser Livai Tora said prizemoney and trophies would be awarded to winners.

"This is the biggest horse race event in Fiji," he said.

"Top horses from around the country will be racing. We have 10 races, five for the lightweight horses and five for the heavyweight horses.
