The 2016 Balaklava Cup winner Little Akie

The $100,000 Listed Advertisers Newspapers 2017 Balaklava Cup will take on a new look this year and has a strong field of 13 acceptances for this Wednesday.
 
In what's generally held in late August the race has now been pushed back a few weeks and it will be the the first major SA country race meeting shown on free-to-air TV thanks to a new media rights agreement between Thoroughbred Racing SA and Racing.com. The race will also return as a 1600m event  following last years late and controversial decision to have it at 1300m.
 
Last year's winner Little Akie is set for his fourth appearance in the race and joins the 2015 winner By The Grace in a strong field that includes seven listed winners.
 
This race can be a launching pad into the Melbourne Spring Carnival with winners since 2000 in Gris Caro, Alcopop and Roman Arch all going on to strong performances after.
