After enjoying a bit of additional down time and turning in a pair of recent qualifiers, fan favourite Wiggle It Jiggleit is set to return to battle Thursday evening at Dover Downs for trainer Clyde Francis.

A 38-time winner who has banked in excess of $4 million in earnings, Wiggle It Jiggleit will take on seven salty foes in the $25,000 Open Pace.

Jim Morand is scheduled to sit behind the 2015 Horse of the Year, who will start from Post 4 for the partnership of George Teague Jr Inc and Teague Racing Partnership.

The seven-year-old son of Mr Wiggles-Mozzi Hanover, who went 15-for-24 in 2016, returned from a lengthy layoff during this year’s Jug day program and finished second in his first start off the bench. He was third in an overnight event 11 days later at Harrington Raceway, but found his way back to the sidelines following that assignment.

He’s turned in a pair of sharp-looking qualifiers at Dover Downs – one in 1:55.1 on Nov. 13 and more recently a 1:54.4 score in a Dec. 4 prep with a final quarter clocked in :27.2.

Here’s the field for Thursday’s feature race at the Delaware oval:

December 12, 2019 - 10:01 amI'm going to step in and say

I'm going to step in and say "Don't count the Dancing horse out" .....too much back class to let some down time count him out of the Lions Share of 25K. Just a thought.

December 10, 2019 - 5:18 pmTwo possibilities here:

Two possibilities here: Teague knows his horse is ready to be competitive, or he has to start the horse to get him in race shape and let the chips fall where they may.

December 10, 2019 - 9:47 amI hate to say this but WIJI

Mike Mobley SAID...

I hate to say this but WIJI is facing opposition which is way over his head in this race. He hasn't raced for a purse in over a month, yet he's facing the best pacers on the grounds. Three of them have won in sub-1:50 on a 5/8th's mile track this year, and all but one of them have earned over $60,000 in 2019.
