on Vesey Street with post time scheduled for 1.00 p.m.Nine ponies will be making their debut, including Grand Shady, the son of Shamrock Shady, who is best remembered for setting the world half-mile track record of 59 seconds seven years ago.It will be the first race ever for Shamrock's Formal Attire, the two-year-old son of Shamrock Tuxedo and Bermuda's track record holder.Canadian horse Vita's Laser Beam, the reigning world champion on a quarter-mile track, will also take part in Sunday's programme.Returning to the track after a two-year lay-off will be Nateway, a long-time favourite of spectators.In a major change this year at Vesey Street, the track's hub rail has been replaced by flop down cones for safety reasons. Plans are also underway to create a passing line on the final turn home since the current area is considered too narrow. The passing line is also expected to produce more exciting finishes.
