The fuse will be well and truly lit at Melton this Friday for what promises to be six weeks of outstanding aged racing, with Mach Dan, Honolua Bay and Pacifico Dream among a stunning selection of four-year-olds set to chase riches.

The Australian Pacing Gold series will play out until May 29 and feature not only the new-look Gold Bullion state-based series for two-year-olds but also the rich national series postponed from 2020.

COVID-19’s intrusion in 2020 prompted a 12-month holdover of the national series, and subsequently last year's two and three-year-old graduating classes will now race in $350,000 and $210,000 finals respectively as three and four-year-olds.
