Wagering on the first of two Little Brown Jug future wagering pools will start at 12-noon Thursday, August 28 and continues through 11 p.m. Sunday, August 31 at racetracks and internet sites throughout North America and

The second future pool will be from 12 p.m. Sunday, September 14 through 11:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 17.

The minimum future wager is $1.00 and all future wagers are win wagering only. The winner of each pool will be determined by the official first place finisher in the 2014 Little Brown Jug presented by Fazolis to be raced Thursday afternoon, September 18.

A team of harness racing analysts and handicappers have selected a group of 23 colts and geldings. Each colt and gelding has been assigned morning line odds based on the selection order. The horses in each of the pools are listed in alphabetical order.

"This is the ninth year for the Jug Future Wager and our fans have been supporting this effort year after year," said Phil Terry, marketing manager for the Little Brown Jug. "The future wager gives you an opportunity for potentially higher pay-offs than on the actual second heat of the Jug."

Last year Jug champion Vegas Vacation paid $11.00 in the first pool, $4.20 in the second pool and paid $3.40 in the second heat.

The Casie Coleman trainee McWicked been tapped as the 7-2 morning line favorite in Pool #1. McWicked won the $500,000 Max Hempt Memorial and the $400,000 Adios Pace and owns a lifetime mark of 1:47.3. The bay son of
McArdle is owned by the SSG Stable. With a win, Coleman will be the first conditioner with three straight LBJ training victories.

World champion Hes Watching is a very close second choice at 4-1. The son of American Ideal won the $776,000 Meadowlands Pace in a world record time of 1:46.4 on July 12. Hes Watching was originally purchased for a meager
$3,000 as a yearling and has earned Menary Racing, Brad Gray, Michael Guerriero and Muscara Racing more than $983,000.

The mutuel field consists of the remaining horses eligible to the 69th edition of the pacing classic.

Past performance lines for the Little Brown Jug Future Wagering event will be available free of charge on the Little Brown Jug website,
