If there's a horse that epitomizes the old expression, "it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog", it would be the Ted McDonald-trained and driven Imjustalittleguy.

On Sunday night at Rideau Carleton Raceway in the night's feature, the $12,100 Preferred Pace, McDonald guided the diminutive Imjustalittleguy to the win in gate-to-wire fashion. With fractions of :27, 56.3 and 1:25.1, a :29 closer sealed the deal by two lengths over favoured Priceless Edition (Gord Brown) and pocket-sitting Lincoln Parke (Denis St. Pierre) in 1:54.1.

Now seven, Imjustalittleguy (Armbro Operative - Armbro Velour) is owned by Lloyd Stone of Portland and Dr. John Tobin of Elgin, Ont. With 10 wins on the season and 33 lifetime, the pacer that didn't start his harness racing career until his four-year-old season is close to $260,000 in lifetime earnings.
