HARRISBURG PA - Team Teague, a group of horsepeople based in Harrington DE who have been masterful in both their care and campaigning of the charismatic $3.9M-winning pacer Wiggle It Jiggleit over the last two years, has won the top honor that the United States Harness Writers Association (USHWA) solely votes on - the Stan Bergstein Proximity Award, "presented annually to those who have made outstanding contributions to harness racing." The team "captain' is of course owner/trainer George Teague Jr., "defending" Owner of the Year, through whom the major decisions are made, but George would be the first to credit the many many others who have been integral parts of the success of Wiggle It Jiggleit, 2015 Horse of the Year and second in this year's voting, and indeed all the way back to 2004 Horse of the Year Rainbow Blue and beyond. These folks would include George's sister Brenda, his "right-hand man" for many years and an outstanding horsewoman in her own right; his stable's owners, many of them from his home base of Delaware; and Jim Bernstein, a former horseman turned successful businessman, who helps keep Team Teague on sound financial footing. There is George's son Montrell, last year's Rising Star Award winner, who has shown both ability and "cool" in the sulky well beyond his 25 years, and who in his intelligence, horsemanship, and enthusiasm has become as public a standardbearer of Team Teague as anybody. There is the veteran Clyde Francis, who oversees the day-to-day care of "Wiggle," and "Big Mike" Taylor, honored as 2015's Caretaker of the Year, who has developed a rapport with his charge while also keeping his respect - many a chaotic winners circle, definitely NOT Wiggle's favorite place to go, has been avoided by Mike's patient yet firm handling of the horse just after the races. Add in other stable employees and front office workers, and you have a group of individuals who have all had a part in the success of a horse who has commanded a major portion of the harness spotlight for two full seasons now - Team Teague has indeed made "an outstanding contribution" to the sulky sport. GEORGE TEAGUE NAMED USHWA'S GOOD GUY Besides voting to put Team Teague on the final ballot for the prestigious Bergstein/Proximity Award (and then picking the Team to win the award), George Teague Jr. himself was selected by the chapters of USHWA for individual recognition as the organization's Good Guy Award winner, for outstanding cooperation with the media and in helping to showcase the sport. And George was voted the Good Guy Award winner as well - making him the first two-time winner of the Good Guy Award in the 53-year history of the honor (he also won in 2004, Rainbow Blue's "year.") One example given of George's desire to serve and better harness racing came when he was asked to bring Wiggle It Jiggleit, last year's Little Brown Jug winner, to the Delaware OH Fair to make an appearance this season - in the middle of a grueling racing campaign. But Teague oversaw the preparations to get the horse to central Ohio for Jug Day, and Wiggle led the post parade for the Triple Crown pacing event. (An irony here: Wiggle It Jiggleit won the 2015 Jug with a stirring stretch surge that edged out Lost For Words - who was trained by Brian Brown, the Delaware [OH]-based conditioner who finished second to Teague in this year's Good Guy voting!) Team Teague and George Teague Jr. will be honored at the "Night Of Champions," the Dan Patch Awards Banquet Presented by Hoosier Park, which will take place on Sunday, February 26 at the Planet Hollywood hotel/casino in Las Vegas. Information about the banquet, tickets and room reservations for the entire weekend, which will also contain the annual meetings of USHWA, can be found on the communicators' website, www.ushwa.org - including links for making hotel reservations at special rates at Planet Hollywood; banquet tickets; and congratulatory or acknowledgment ads in the keepsake Souvenir Banquet Journal, annually one of the best chronicles of a year in North American harness racing.

Cranbury, NJ --- Defending Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit is supplemented to the $421,000 Breeders Crown Pace, setting up another epic showdown with harness racing arch-rival Always B Miki, winner of last year's Crown title for older pacers at Woodbine Racetrack. Wiggle It Jiggleit, owned by George Teague Jr. Inc., and Teague Racing Partnerships LLC, is the richest harness horse this year with seasonal earnings of $1,624,337, and will meet up once again with the fastest Standardbred of all-time, Bluewood Stable, Roll The Dice Stable and Christina Takter's Always B Miki, who lowered the world pacing mark to 1:46 on Oct. 9 at Lexington's Red Mile. The two have electrified the sport battling in the open ranks this year and the adage "In harness racing, it all comes down to the Breeders Crown" may never hold truer. The pair has met seven times in open stakes competition with each horse winning three - Shamballa beat them both in the US Pacing Championship, though Wiggle It Jiggleit finished second and Always B Miki fourth in that match-up. One of four Breeders Crown events slated for the Meadowlands on Friday, Oct. 28, the Crown Pace will be featured in a one-hour live broadcast on SNY (Sports Net New York) from 9-10:00 p.m. [EDT]. Though owner George Teague and trainer Clyde Francis had not been inclined to supplement their extraordinary 4-year-old gelded son of Mr Wiggles, the ease with which he racked up his 38th career win in 50 starts a $250,000 Invitational at Yonkers last Saturday changed their minds. "Wiggle" was the lone supplement to any Crown event by the noon deadline of Monday, Oct. 17. "The main reason I wanted to do it was because it's good for the business," said Teague from his home base of Harrington, Delaware. "People like to see him race and these two together, they may meet another time, but for him to be in the Breeders Crown it's really good for the business more than anything." "This horse just gets stronger and sharper as the year goes on," marveled Teague. "When he trained before the Yonkers race I thought he was sharper than he was in April and May. He's never taken a week off all year and never had a bad race either." Regular entries for eligible trotters and pacers are due by 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Meadowlands race office. The contestants for the 12 Breeders Crown Finals will be determined through elimination races this Friday and Saturday night at the Meadowlands. Eliminations for all open events will be raced on Friday [post time 7:15 p.m.] and eliminations for all 2-year-old and 3-year-olds will be Saturday [post time 7:15 p.m.]. Elimination winners draw for inside post positions 1-5 for the finals. For more information go to Hambletonian.com or playmeadowlands.com.

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, October 15, 2016 - The post position gods made it difficult for harness racing star Wiggle It Jiggleit (Montrell Teague, $2.80). The opposition did not. Harness racing's richest horse of 2016 had it easier than expected Saturday afternoon, winning Yonkers Raceway's $250,000 Invitational Pace. Everything, save for the draw, worked out splendidly. First, there was an inside scratch, moving WIJI in one notch from behind the eight-ball. Second, in a race packed with early foot, everyone else deferred. Wiggle It Jiggleit snapped off the wings, made an immediate lead and rendered the result a given. WIJI found his way around pole-sitting Bit of a Legend N (Jordan Stratton), then negotiated his work day (:27.3, :55.4, 1:23.1, 1:50.2) with no issues whatsoever. So much for a shot at the Raceway's first ever sub-1:50 mile. It was Keystone Velocity (Brian Sears), who figured to be in the early fray, trying it first-up...from fifth. That one never mounted a challenge as Wiggle It Jiggleit took a length-and-a-half lead into the lane. The final margin over a chasing Bit of a Legend N was a length-and-three quarters, with Mel Mara (Corey Callahan)-another non-leaver-All Bets Off (Matt Kakaley) and Melmerby Beach (Dan Dube) settling for the minors. For WIJI, a 4-year-old Mr. Wiggles gelding trained by Clyde Francis for co-owners George Teague Jr. and Teague Racing Partnership, it was his 15th win in 23 seasonal starts ($1,624,337, career 38-for-50, over $3.8 million). The exacta paid $8.20, the triple returned $33.60 and the superfecta paid $54.50. "I was surprised as anyone to no one left out of there," Montrell Teague said. "He was on the bit and ready, so I let him go. It was a better trip than I could have ever imagined. "Someone asked me going in what my strategy was, and I said I had idea, just see how the race unfolded." It unfolded right in his lap. As far as buying into the Breeders Crown, "Dad and I have talked about it, but we're not going to tip our hand yet." Frank Drucker

HARRINGTON, Del. - Harness racing fans will have the opportunity to meet the connections of reigning horse of the year Wiggle It Jiggleit Thursday (October 13) at Harrington Raceway. From 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the grandstand lobby, owner George Teague Jr., trainer Clyde Francis, driver Montrell Teague and groom Mike Taylor will be on hand to sign autographs. Harrington Raceway will be giving out photo cards of Wiggle It Jiggleit, which has space allocated for autographs. Wiggle It Jiggleit, based nearby on the Teague farm in Harrington has mesmerized racing fans with his incredible resume of 37 wins in 49 career starts. He recently broke the seasonal earnings mark for an older pacer with $1.49 million earned this year. His next race is scheduled for this Saturday (October 15) in an invitational event at Yonkers Raceway (Ny). Live racing will continue on a Monday through Thursday schedule at Harrington through October 20. Matthew Sparacino      

The clubhouse was sold out seven days ago, the denizens of the apron stood shoulder-to-shoulder despite the deluge the area had withstood  14 of the last 24 hours and before the first race went off on the harness racing card at Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway on Friday (Sept. 30) all people could discuss was how fortunate they were to witness live the most elite equine athletes on the continent. In fact, one young lady explained to her young son just how significant the upcoming $150,000 Dayton Pacing Derby truly was. “You need to remember this night,” she said. “This is the time you will see the greatest horses in the world race with your own eyes. Don’t you want to see Wiggle It Jiggleit in person?” So did thousands of others at the Ohio oval and Wiggle It Jiggleit repaid their reverence and homage with a dazzling photo finish triumph in a track record 1:49.1 by the slimmest of nostrils over Always B Miki. The public’s sentimental selection, Freaky Fete Pete, checked in a quarter-length behind in third. Owner George Teague, summed the electrifying performance in which Wiggle It Jiggle reversed a similar loss at Scioto Downs to the same rival, succinctly. “He delivers,” he said. As the crowd chanted his name his stridently it deafened the public  address system, Wiggle It Jiggleit and pilot Montrell Teague prepared to leave from post position five. The second choice at odds of 6-5, the defending Horse of the Year was unhurried at the start and settled into fourth behind race leader Luck Be Withyou (Eric Goodell), third selection Freaky Feet Pete (Trace Tetrick) and even money favorite Always B Miki (David Miller). After establishing fractions of :26.2 and :54.4 in their first tour around the track, Miller decided he had waited long enough and sent Always B Miki first-over. Teague immediately grasped the golden opportunity for live cover and pulled Wiggle It Jiggleit from his position to follow Always B Miki’s assault on the top two. After ranging alongside Luck Be Withyou momentarily, Always B Miki took control after three-quarters in 1:22.1 with Wiggle It Jiggleit right on his flank. This locked Freaky Feet Pete in along the rail and shuffled him to fourth with Luck Be Withyou in second and Wiggle It Jiggleit in third as the drive for the wire ensued at the top of the homestretch. As Always B Miki appeared poised to pull ahead never relinquish the lead, Wiggle It Jiggleit loomed menacingly on the outside. Those two one again waged war through the length of the homestretch and at the finish line, left the exhilarated crowd puzzling over which horse captured the battle. Within minutes, that seemed much more lik hours, Wiggle It Jiggleit was declared the victor and the fans demonstrated their appreciation for his monstrous effort with a round of cheers that drowned out any other sound. “I always felt like I was in a good position,” Teague said in the winner’s circle. “I liked where Miki was and felt very comfortable all the way around the track. I just feel very fortunate to have been associated with this horse at such a young age and to have this kind of opportunity. He has already accomplished so much and done so many things. All I can hope for that is he continues to go on and do these things. “He’s not really a people horse. But I do think he really likes hearing the crowd cheer for him.” Conditioned by Clyde Francis, Wiggle It Jiggleit paid $4.40 to win, while Always B Miki provided $2.20 to his supporters.  The 4-year-old gelding has now amassed a staggering $3.612 million lifetime and his 36th win from 48 career trips to the post. The exacta $6.60 and the trifecta, rounded out by Freaky Feet Pete, who once again closed on the inside, paid $3.00. One race prior to yet another fantastic show-down between Always B Miki and Wiggle It Jiggleit, Obrigado made his own strong statement by emphatically capturing the $160,000 Dayton Trotting Derby for conditioner and co-owner Paul Kelley. With regular reinsman Mark MacDonald holding the lines, the public’s second wagering selection (8-5) behind only Shake It Cerry, commenced trotting from post position five and swiftly settled into second place behind Homicide Hunter (Eric Goodell). As Homicide Hunter set all the fractions heading in the stretch clicking off panels of :26.3, :56.2 and 1:24.2, Obigado was content to remain in the pocket for the entire journey. As Wind Of The North (Matt Kakaley) made his first-over bid heading into the lane, Obrigado was briefly overtaken, but that is when MacDonald pushed the button. At that juncture, the rest of the field was all competing for second place as the gelding glided to the wire to stop the clock in 1:53.2 Centurion ATM (Aaron Merriman) closed from the clouds to finish second, while Wind Of The North was relegated to third after his early move. Also owned by Srf Stable, Linwood Higgins and Stable 45, Obrigado increased his bankroll to $1.362 million with his 77th lifetime win. His connections were obviously overjoyed with the victory, but were also relieved as the horse did not have the easiest of transport experiences on his way from Lexington, Ky. due to the heavy rains. “It was some kind of trip,” Kelley said. “But this horse is so intelligent and easy on himself. In fact, he is almost lazy and is kind of lazy training. He knows when it is time to race though. I think it’s a shame he did not get invited to the International Trot at Yonkers, because I think he would have won. We will take him back to Lexington, put him in the Allerage and then race on the undercard at Yonkers on International Trot night. From there we will just see what happens.” With one of the largest crowds in its three-year history, if not the largest ever, the Dayton Raceway tallied an all-time high in handle with $416,458 wagered on the evening’s card.

HARRINGTON, Del. - Wiggle It Jiggleit ($2.20, Montrell Teague) won the 10th Annual $150,000 Bobby Quillen Memorial Monday at Harrington Raceway in 1:50 over a sloppy harness racing racetrack. Owned by George Teague Jr and Teague Racing Partnership, the 4-year-old Mr. Wiggles gelding notched his 36th career win in front of a large contingent of racing fans, many of whom came to see the 2015 Horse of the Year in action. Wiggle It Jiggleit, who is trained by Clyde Francis, left alertly from post position one and protected position with strong early fractions of 26 and 54 with Luckbewithyou in the pocket through three-quarters in 1:22.3. Wiggle It Jiggleit drew clear by two lengths in the stretch with an overpowering triumph. Mach It So, 2015 Quillen champ rallied strongly to be second with Luckbewithyou third. "I was raised here 40 years ago and just to have the race here is a big thing," said owner George Teague. "It can't get much better than that. You go around to Indiana, New York and see the crowds. It's really nice to see." For 25-year-old driver Montrell Teague, the son of George Teague Jr., it was also a rewarding effort. "It's great to win at Harrington," said Montrell Teague. "I look in the stands and see all my family and friends. It's a great win." Trainer Francis, who just returned from a multiple week stint in Canada, was happy to be home. "I was up there for almost three weeks, I was glad to get back down here," said Francis, who indicated Wiggle It Jiggleit's next race would likely be at Dayton Raceway (Ohio) at the end of the month. The win pushed Wiggle It Jiggleit over the $3.6 million lifetime, while also equaling a track record for 4-year-old pacing geldings. It was yet another resume building win for the star pacer who has won major events this year such as the Canadian Pacing Derby, Graduate, Dorothy Mullin Memorial, Battle of Lake Erie, Dan Patch Invitational, just to name a few. The race is named after the popular late long-time legislator who was an avid harness racing fan and was a regular at the racetrack. Three $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes were contested for 2-year-old pacing fillies on the undercard. Driver Victor Kirby piloted two of the three winners for owner Jo Ann Looney-King and trainer Jim King Jr., winning with Spanish Dream ($6.40, Victor Kirby, 1:57) and Logan's Girl ($4.20, 1:58). Spanish Dream is sired by Dream Away, while Logan's Girl is a daughter of Roddy's Bags Again. George Teague Jr.'s I Won Them Both ($2.40, Montrell Teague) captured the third division with a 1:58 triumph for trainer Francis. I Won Them Both is sired by Mr. Apples. Four $20,000 divisions for pacing colts and geldings will go post ward on Tuesday with trotters taking center stage on Wednesday. Matthew Sparacino  

HARRINGTON, Del. - Harness racing owner George Teague Jr. has been as far north as Quebec, Canada, and as far west as Indiana with 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit, but as rewarding as those trips have been, there's no place like home. Team Teague and harness racing superstar Wiggle It Jiggleit have traveled to 12 different racetracks this year, six different states and two Canadian provinces, but will now have a race close to their Harrington, Del. home on Monday September 19th for the 10th Annual $150,000 Bobby Quillen Memorial. The Teague farm is located about 5 miles from Harrington Raceway. Wiggle It Jiggleit is trained by long time Teague associate, Clyde Francis. "We're really looking forward to it," said Teague, who will have two 2-year-old fillies racing on the same card in the opening round of Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) action. "It's funny because we've raced all over and one of the most memorable moments is when we raced at Harrington last year and had as much fun winning an $11,000 race as we did the $700,000 Meadowlands Pace. It's great to bring this kind of horse in front of your home crowd." Teague was alluding to his star pacer's world and track record setting 1:49 performance at Harrington on May 11, 2015. A large contingent of fans showed up to watch him race in anticipation of seeing a rising star. At the time, Wiggle It Jiggleit had won six races. To say that his star has risen since then, would be a gross understatement. He now has 35 wins in 47 lifetime starts, won many of the sport's top races and has banked more than $3.5 million in his career, while captivating racing fans across the country with some breathtaking performances. Perhaps no win was bigger than his epic win in the Little Brown Jug at Delaware, Ohio. Wiggle It Jiggleit's sire, Mr. Wiggles, who was also in the George Teague Jr. stable, finished fourth in his Quillen elimination in 2010 before being scratched due to sickness from the final. "He has definitely done his sire proud," said Teague, who conditioned Mr. Wiggles and still owns the sire. "This race is very important to us." Wiggle It Jiggleit's last race was a second place finish in the $225,000 Jim Ewart Memorial at Scioto Downs (Ohio) in a world record mile of 1:47. "Wiggle" did the heavy lifting throughout the mile after setting a grueling pace while dueling with eventual winner Always B Miki, who won a memorable stretch battle that left many horse racing fans speechless. "He came out of the race really good," said trainer Clyde Francis. "He always amazes me how well he recovers after a race. It's unbelievable how well he jogged and how fresh he is. We couldn't be happier with how well he is coming into the race." Teague said he has received an abundance of feedback in regards to his upcoming race in his hometown. "A lot of people have contacted me about him racing here," he said. "Not just in Delaware, but in New Jersey, Maryland and other nearby states." While Wiggle It Jiggleit (7/5, Montrell Teague) figures to be a well-backed favorite at post time, the path to victory isn't a foregone conclusion, given the rich field of pacers that has amassed in excess of $8 million in career earnings. "Having the rail on a half-mile racetrack is always the ideal place," he said. "The draw definitely worked to our advantage. There's some really nice horses in there. Luckbewithyou, Rockin Ron, Mach It So, Mel Mara and others have been racing against some of the best year round. Hats off to Harrington Raceway for getting such a great field of horses. My horse will have to be on his game." Among the competition is Bamond Racing's Mach It So (9/1, Tim Tetrick) won the 2015 edition of the Quillen and enters off an impressive 1:51.2 win at Yonkers Raceway (NY). "We had a great time last year," said trainer Jeff Bamond. "Everyone treated us great. (Mach It So) kind of tailed off a little bit but he seems to be going back in the right direction. We were very pleased with his last race at Yonkers." John Craig's Luckbewithyou (5/2, Eric Goodell) was a game third place finisher in the aforementioned 1:47 mile on September 10 at Scioto Downs. The Western Ideal 5-year-old has been in many stakes engagements this year and has banked nearly $1.3 million in his career. "I thought he raced very good at Scioto," said trainer Chris Oakes. "I was real happy with him. He came out of the race good but we might have a tough time with the 1 horse there (Wiggle It Jiggleit)." Burke Racing, Weaver Brucsemi and RTC Stables' Rockin Ron (20/1, Yannick Gingras) sprung a 14-to-1 upset against Wiggle It Jiggleit in the Prix D Ete at Three Rivers Raceway in Quebec (Ontario) on August 21 for perennial leading trainer Ron Burke. The powerhouse Burke stable is tops in North America with 629 wins and nearly $15 million in purse earnings this year. Only Robert Cooper Stables and J&T Silva's Mel Mara (6/1, Corey Callahan) has a win at Harrington this year and it came last week with a track record setting 1:50.1 performance. Mel Mara is trained locally by Dylan Davis of Viola, Del. Lauretta Galm's Keystone Velocity (25/1, Andrew McCarthy) is also locally-trained by Mike Hall of Dagsboro, Del., and is coming off a career best 1:48.4 at Pocono Downs (PA). Lightning Stable's Mcardles Lightning (12/1, David Miller) has been a heavy hitter among Open pacers in New York and New Jersey while Rock and Roll Stable's American Primetime (12/1, Tony Morgan) has been a well-traveled adversary throughout the year and took a lifetime best at the Meadowlands of 1:49. Post time for the 13-race program is 5 p.m. The field is listed below in order by post position: 10th Race - Harrington Raceway September 19, 2016 1 - Wiggle It Jiggleit - Mr Wiggles - (7/5, Montrell Teague) 2 - Mcardles Lightning - McArdle - (12/1, David Miller) 3 - Mach It So - Mach Three - (9/1, Tim Tetrick) 4 - Luckbewithyou - Western Ideal - (5/2, Eric Goodell) 5 - American Primetime - American Ideal - (12/1, Tony Morgan) 6 - Rockin Ron - Real Desire - (20/1, Yannick Gingras) 7 - Keystone Velocity - Western Hanover - (25/1, Andrew McCarthy) 8 - Mel Mara - Lis Mara - (6/1, Corey Callahan) Matthew Sparacino

CAMPBELLVILLE, September 3... Wiggle It Jiggleit, driven by Montrell Teague, front-stepped his way to a harness racing victory in the $616,000 Canadian Pacing Derby on Saturday night at Mohawk. The four-year-old gelding, who was the 2015 U.S. Horse of the Year, stopped the clock in 1:49 en route to his 35th victory in 46 lifetime starts. As Wiggle It Jiggleit surged to the lead, Always B Miki was hot on his heels. The 7-5 bettor's choice held position into the first turn posting a flashy :25.3 opening panel, which forced Always B Miki to drop into third behind a second-sitting Nickle Bag. Wiggle It Jiggleit, a triple millionaire, then continued to march past the half in :54.1, which is when Always B Miki and driver Dave Miller made another bid for the lead. The son of Mr Wiggles began to open up on the field after they paced by the three-quarters in 1:21.4. No one could catch Wiggle It Jiggleit in the stretch, which secured his wire-to-wire victory by one and three-quarter lengths. Always B Miki stayed for second, while Dealt A Winner, at odds of 112-1, rallied for third. "You got to take advantage of it when you have it," Montrell Teague noted about leaving from the rail and having the opportunity to cut the fractions. "I showed it tonight-:25.3. I think everybody got what I was doing." "Just warming him up, you can tell that he is on his game," added the reinsman. "He got a little bit grabby coming home so I knew he knew what to do and the track was good." The Clyde Francis trainee is now 12-5-2 in 19 starts this season and with the win, Wiggle It Jiggleit boasts $3,626,907 in career earnings for owners George Teague Jr Inc., and Teague Racing Partnership. "Clyde does a great job," said co-owner George Teague. "I haven't even seen him for the last two weeks so it isn't nothing to do with me. Clyde Francis does a great job and Montrell managed him his whole career and saved when he could and when he raced him hard, he raced him hard. But that's a big credit to the two of them." Wiggle It Jiggleit paid $4.90 to win. Mark McKelvie

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, August 20, 2016 - Without the other "Big Three" to contend with this weekend, Wiggle It Jiggleit could very well have an easy time Sunday in the $200,000 Prix D'Ete Sunday afternoon at the Hippodrome 3R.ham Racing fans throughout Quebec will have the rare chance to see this world champion performer in their backyard. The Prix D'Ete is just for four-year-old pacers and Team Teague is taking full advantage of the opportunity for what many consider to be an easy payday. Just don't try and tell that to the other four contenders in the race. Wiggle It Jiggleit comes into the Prix D'Ete off a dramatic comeback victory in the $325,000 Dan Patch at Hoosier Park where he defeated rivals Always B Miki, All Bets Off, Shamballa and Freaky Feet Pete. None of those rivals are in the race on Sunday. The 2015 Harness Horse of the Year is the current money winner leader in 2016 with more than $1 million bankrolled this season. He sports 11 wins in 17 starts, four seconds and two third place finishes, thus he has never finished off the board this season. Owned by George Teague, Jr. and the Teague Racing Partnership of Delaware, WIJI starts from the rail on Sunday in the 10th race feature with George Teague's son, Montrell, handling the lines as he has done all season long. Most figure that WIJI, a son of Mr. Wiggles, will go off at odds of 1-9 and rightly so off his past performances and uncanny ability to dig in when most horses would back off. "What I am most pleased about him right now," said owner George Teague, Jr. "Is that he has settled down into a groove and is relaxed more when he races. It took a few starts but I think he is at his best now and last week really showed it." "He (WIJI) arrived in good shape," said trainer Clyde Francis. "It took us around 12 hours to get to Quebec (I got a little lost finding the training center outside of Montreal) but once we arrived, WIJI was feeling pretty good. He ate up all his feed and this morning I jogged him and he was ready to go a mile. He will be in top shape for tomorrow." Is WIHI a sure bet? Perhaps, but then again, the other four rivals in the short field cannot read a program. Rival Rockin Ron from post five, beat WIJI back on May 15 in the Confederation Cup final at Flamboro Downs. At that time the son of Real Desire was undefeated in ten starts this season. Trained by Ron Burke and part of an entry in the race with Rock N Roll World, Rockin Ron starts from post five. The gelded son of Real Desire has yet to win a race since beating WIJI, but still has earned $324,000 this season and was fourth to WIJI in a leg and the final of the Graduate Series. "There are not many horses that can beat Rockin Ron out of the starting gate," said his driver, Yannick Gingras. "Starting from post five I plan on leaving hard and seeing how it develops. I really want to be on the lead early. With a five-horse field strategy is the key and I think the race will be won or lost by position by the opening quarter mile. Stablemate Rock N Roll World goes from post four for driver Daniel Dube. Dube is a native of Trois-Rivieres and Gringras also grew up in Sorel, Quebec. Both are world class drivers and will have the home town crowd rooting them on. Rock N Roll World is sired by Rocknroll Hanover and just pasted the $100,000 mark in earnings this season with just two wins. He was third to WIJI three starts back in the Graduate Final, pacing his mile in 1:48, so he is also a contender in this race. In peak form coming into the Prix D'Ete is Rockin In Heaven from post three for driver Jody Jamieson. The son of Rock N Roll Heaven is trained by Dr. Ian Moore and in his last two starts at Mohawk Raceway he was victorious in 1:50.4 and 1:51.2. He has $105,000 in earnings this year. "He (Rockin In Heaven) has picked the perfect time to come into form," said Jamieson. "He won his last two starts both on the front end and from behind and we did not enter this race to go for second place money. If he feels good enough behind the gate, we might leave and see how the race goes early on, but WIGI or not, we came here to win it." The long shot of sorts in the field is ASAP Hanover. This son of Somebeachsomewhere drew post two in the Prix D'Ete for local driving sensation Louis-Philippe Roy, made only one start at age 3 and has but two wins this year, one of them coming three starts back at Mohawk Raceway in a lifetime best clocking of 1:50.2. He is trained by Sean Mehlenbacher of Ontario, who decided to take a chance with young driver Louis-Philippe Roy. "I had read some stories of how Roy was driving very well at 3R and Rideau Carlton," Mehlenbacher explained, "but last week he impressed me a lot with his win in the Gold Cup & Saucer and I like having the leading driver at a track drive my horses. "We did not come all the way from Ontario to race for fifth place money," Mehlenbacher said. "I was real pleased my horse drew post two and despite finishing 10th last week as he was never able to get into the race, he is feeling good and I think he will be heard from on Sunday." The Hippodrome 3R track announcer, Guy LaFontaine, sees the short field capable of breaking the all-age track record of 1:50.3 that is co-held by Prix D'Ete winners Sunfire Blue Chip (2014) and All Bets Off (2015). "I think the forecast for rain will hold off until after the races Sunday afternoon," Lafontaine said. "And with a fast track and a rich purse, they will be flying around the 3R oval and will break the track record. I predict it will be Wiggle It Jiggleit by a nose over Rockin In in 1:49.2." TRACK NOTES: There are four divisions, two for colts and two for fillies, of the third leg of the Future Stars Series for pacers on the Sunday program. Standouts include Makasi (race 3) for driver Yannick Gingras, who despite being winless in two starts, was race timed at Mohawk Raceway in 1:52.3 and 1:53.4. He takes on Wildriverbumblebee, who in his last start won a leg of the series at 3R in 1:57.4. The fourth race for fillies features Yaris Bayama for trainer Yves Filion. She will be driven by Yves son, Sylvan Filion, and last week won the $105,000 final of the Grassroots Series at Mohawk in a lifetime best 1:52.4. Most simulcasting outlets and ADW's will be carrying the 3R race program Sunday with first race post time at 1:30 pm. For a free race program for Sunday, visit www.quebecjockeyclub.com.

ANDERSON, Ind.-August 13, 2016 - There was a throbbing energy throughout the Friday (Aug. 12) evening that not only emanated from those in attendance at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino, but from those  individuals not present to witness what could very well be the most stellar harness racing field ever assembled in the 23-year-old history of the $325,000 Dan Patch Stakes and certainly no one could possess one ounce of disappointment at the outcome. Not only did Wiggle It Jiggleit appear defeated in mid-stretch, the defending Horse of the Year, known at times erratic antics off the track, displayed a new dimension in his racing style as he strode up the rail to hand Always B Miki his second consecutive defeat. The son of Mr Wiggles-Mozzi Hanover, with Montrell Teague in his customary position in the bike, tripped the timer in 1:49.1. Co-owner George Teague, Jr. concurred the gelding, who is also owned by Teague Racing Partnership and is conditioned by Clyde Francis, has adjusted his behavior throughout the course of 2016 and that attitude adjustment has definitely added another weapon to his already stocked arsenal. "He is maturing and growing up," Teague said. "He is really starting to come along. We used to have walk him around and around just to keep him settled down. Now he is more relaxed and takes things as they come. He's always been an intelligent horse, but the older he gets the more he has calmed down. He's even better in the winner's circle now and as long as you keep him checked up, like we did tonight, we even get some pictures of him. This kind of maturity will only improve him." As expected, Wiggle It Jiggleit was placed on the lead leaving the gate from post position one, with Freaky Feet Pete, who began to pace his mile right next to him, right behind him. Wakizashi Hanover followed his colleagues in third, with the public selection Always B Miki in fourth. The gelding clicked off the contest's first fraction in a sensible :27.4 and tossed down another comfortable :27.4 quarter before David Miller brushed Always B Miki straight to the lead. Wiggle It Jiggle was content to sit in the pocket as Trace Tetrick and Freaky Feet Pete were satisfied with remaining in third. As Always B Miki hit the three-quarter pole in 1:22.4, Tetrick decided he could wait no longer to make a move and gave Freaky Feet Pete enough rein to surge alongside Always B Miki. The hometown hero, however, could not sustain his bid and failed to clear the world champion. After Always B Miki repelled Freak Feet Pete's challenge, it appeared the Dan Patch title would be the next revered stake to grace his resume. Wiggle It Jiggleit and Teague, however, were far from finished and coveted that accolade as their own. Teague angled the gelding in towards the rail and Wiggle It Jiggleit gamely responded to spurt through on the inside and pull away from his rival to best him by a length. All Bets Off and Shamballa battled behind the top two, with the former pacing a sizzling :25.2 final panel to hit the wire in tandem for third place, as they could not be separated at the wire. When asked about Wiggle It Jiggleit's rail journey to victory, Teague explained he was quite confident his horse would respond in tight quarters. "Wiggle It is a very intelligent horse and we've trained out here and a couple other places so he's used to it," he said. "It was a definitely a hard trip, but we got the job done." The elder Teague acknowledged after post positions were drawn on Tuesday, (Aug. 9) the horse's connections were very pleased with where their charge would start pacing, but they also have a tremendous amount of respect for the other members of the field, as there were six world champions present and prepared to pace. "Coming off the rail we were very excited," George said. "Normally I would tell people (in that position) to just run with it, but we knew we had to make a couple decisions. Every horse in that race could take the trip. Also, Montrell is great with the horse. Sometimes we feel like he knows him better than his owners know him." Wiggle It Jiggleit, the joint favorite with Always B Miki at 8-5, paid $5.40 to his backers, while Always B Miki provided $3.80 to show. All Bets Off returned $23.80 for his efforts and Shamballa paid $2.10. The exacta was $17.40 and the trifecta was either $166.00 or $95.60. Wiggle It Jiggleit Hoosier Park's Dan Patch Invitational saw measurable success on all fronts. Excitement pervaded throughout the grandstand as a large, enthusiastic crowd welcomed the 23rd installment of Hoosier Park's signature event to the track. The wagering front also saw much success and offered remarkable value to the horseplayer with the introduction of a signature $20,000 Guaranteed Superfecta and a $15,000 Guaranteed Hoosier High-Five for the Dan Patch Stakes card. The bettors came out in full force as the handle increases were felt both on track and through export wagering. Live racing will continue at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, August 13 with a 13-race card that is set to begin at an adjusted post time of 4:30 p.m. Beginning at 4:00 p.m., racing fans can enjoy the ultimate in entertainment, intense flavors of fiery BBQ, and energizing drinks as part of Hoosier Park's annual "Thrillyard 200" event located in The Yard.

A free fireworks presentation will culminate the entire evening and will follow the free concert starting at approximately 10:15 p.m. by Kim French

Reigning National Horse of the Year Wiggle It JiggleIt (Mr Wiggles) came to the Saratoga Racetrack for the first time on Saturday night and was the harness racing 1-9 betting favorite in the 8th annual $260,000 Joe Gerrity Jr. Memorial Pace. Driver Montrell Teague blasted the superstar pacer out early but after seeing he was parked in a fast opening quarter backed off a bit and waited for things to sort out. Wiggle It Jiggleit then blasted up alongside leader All Bets Off (Matt Kakaley) and took over the lead in a half of 54.4. After stealing a third quarter breather, Wiggle It Jiggleit sprinted away in a 27.1 final panel to win by two lengths in 1:51. Bit Of A Legend N (Jordan Stratton) closed quickly up the rail and won the photo for place with All Bets Off earning the show spot in the $260,000 Gerrity. Though the track record wasn't ever in jeopardy on Saturday night, the fans who came out in full force to see the harness racing superstar roared in appreciation as the talented four year old made his way back for the winner circle presentation. It was victory number ten in fifteen starts this year for Wiggle It Jiggleit who is owned by George Teague Inc. and Teague Racing Partnership LLC and trained by Clyde Francis. Wiggle It JiggleIt earnings are now $2,999,000 from 42 starts for 33 wins, 6 seconds and 2 thirds. There was over $600,000 in purse money battled for on the evening's fourteen race card at the Spa. Live racing resumes on Tuesday night as the summer schedule is in full swing with racing every Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 7:05pm each night.   Mike Sardella     Photo: Melissa Simser-Iovino
