Jiggy Jog S 3,1:50 ($2,301,746), the 2023 Dan Patch older mare trotter award winner, has been sold to a group comprised largely of breeders, but will continue racing in 2024.

Jorgen Spaaredal Inc. sold Jiggy Jog S to an ownership group that includes Hunterton Farm, Black Creek Farm, Andrea Lea Stable, Silver Linden Farm, Hickory Hollow Stables, John Lengacher, Martin Schmucker, Lester Graber and Svanstedt Stables. Although purchased for her broodmare potential, plans call for Jiggy Jog S -- now five years old -- to race in 2024 and perhaps even in 2025.

Ake Svanstedt has trained Jiggy Jog S, a daughter of Walner-Hot Mess Hanover, during her entire 35-start racing career. Her victories include two Breeders Crown finals (at ages three and four), the Kentucky Filly Futurity Stakes and FanDuel Mare Trot. In addition, as a three-year-old, she competed in the Hambletonian against the colts and finished fourth after racing parked virtually the entire race and, at age four, she finished second in the prestigious International Trot.

“Jiggy Jog S is a tremendously talented trotter,” said Svanstedt. “She has everything in a racehorse you can wish for -- speed, power, a natural gait and a heart of gold.

“We are very excited to bring her back in 2024 and she will be staked in both the open and mare trot races,” he added. “That will give us options on the way to manage her as the season progresses. She is in her winter training program now [at the Svanstedt Stable in New Jersey] and loves to do her work every day.”

Once her racing career is completed, Jiggy Jog S will join the illustrious roster of broodmares at Steve and Cindy Stewart’s Hunterton Farm in Paris, Kentucky.

“This is a new thing for us to buy a mare who is going to continue racing,” said Steve Stewart. “But it’s very exciting when you have a mare with this kind of talent, to see what else she can do on the track.”
