Joggingtothebank rolled home to become the fastest 5-and-up gelded harness racing trotter in the history of MGM Northfield Park on Saturday (August 8) in the evening's third race.

Joggingtothebank (Break The Bank K) - Jogging Home - Tom Ridge) fired off the gate from post four to lead his competition through quarter times of :27.1, :56.4, 1:24.1 and 1:52.4, winning by 4-1/2 lengths.

 

The previous 1:53 record was held by Outburst and Dan Charlino, set in 2018.

Joggingtothebank now has three straight victories for trainer Marty Wollam, who owns the trotter with partners Julie Sweet and Dale Sweet. Kurt Sugg was aboard for the winning drive. The victory brings Joggingtothebank's career win tally to 15, and Saturday's victory increased his lifetime earnings to $178,000. Joggingtothebank returned $10.40 to win.
