The Australasian harness racing scene now takes a few months of feature race rest and recovery after a jam packed first half of the year.  

While there are still feature races here and there over the coming months, the next carnival of note will be when Victoria steps back into the spotlight headlined by the Pryde's EasiFeed Victoria Cup meeting on October 9.

So where are the stars out of the carnival off to next?
