Jiggy Jog S, the 1-9 favourite, cruised to a track-record clocking of 1:51.1 in the $400,000 Breeders Crown Mare Trot on Saturday, Oct. 28 at Harrah’s Hoosier Park.

Steered by Dexter Dunn for trainer Ake Svanstedt, the four-year-old mare notched her seventh win of the year in 10 starts, upping her career earnings to $2,214,246 for owner Jorgen Sparredal Inc.

Jiggy Jog S took the lead from fourth place after a :55.1 half, following a feisty opening panel of :26.2, and took the field through an easy third-quarter clocking of 1:24.1, before holding off a late surge from M Ms Dream (David Miller) in deep stretch to get the half-length victory. HP Mama B, an 86-1 longshot in rein to Louis-Philippe Roy, was third.

“I put (M Ms Dream) away a couple times and then toward the line she’s come back at me in a few races,” Dunn said. “It’s been a good rivalry with those two. They’re two great mares and it’s fun being out there with them.”

The previous track record was 1:51.2 was set by Bella Bellini in 2022.

Jiggy Jog S, a daughter of Walner-Hot Mess Hanover, was bred in Sweden by Vestmarka AB, and now has 17 wins, 10 seconds and two thirds in 34 career starts.

The victory was Dunn’s third in this year’s Breeders Crown and his fourth in the Mare Trot in five years.

“Manchego, Bella Bellini, and this mare – I’ve been so lucky to sit behind them,” Dunn said, referring to his Crown winners. “They’re just champion mares. There is no better feeling than driving a great trotter and these girls have done a great job for me.”
