The Little Brown Jug Society held its annual meeting on Wednesday morning at the Delaware County Fairgrounds’ Ag Center.

The society accepted the resignation of George Teague Jr. and named him as an Honourary Member.

The society then voted to add trainer/owner Ron Burke to its 25-member board.

“We appreciate the consultation and support George gave us,” said Tom Wright, President of the Little Brown Jug Society. “We are also excited to have Ronnie join us. His record speaks for itself.”

“I love the Jug, its history and format,” noted Burke. “I am honoured to have been asked to join the society.”

Burke has trained three Jug champions and a record four Jugette winners. He was elected into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame earlier this summer.
