With no eliminations necessary, an outstanding group of nine four-year-old pacers will compete in the 2016 Confederation Cup at Flamboro Downs.

The field of nine will battle for a purse of $244,000 in the Confederation Cup on Sunday, May 15.

U.S. Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit headlines the field of nine. The George Teague stable star has won four of five starts to begin his four-year-old season.

Last year, Wiggle It Jiggleit won 22 of 26 starts for earnings of over $2.2 million en route to being named the U.S. Horse of the Year. His list of accolades also includes victories in the Meadowlands Pace, the Little Brown Jug and the Progress Pace.

Trained by Clyde Francis and driven by Montrell Teague, Wiggle It Jiggleit will prepare for the Confederation Cup in the Preferred Pace this Saturday at Mohawk Racetrack.

Here is the full group of nine four-year-old pacers, in alphabetical order, to enter the Confederation Cup.

After that performance by WIJI on Saturday at Mohawk I would not be surprised if it scratches out of the Confed Cup. The horse didn't look good from the start. Credit to the horse and driver for finishing second in a relative walk.

Darcy MANN SAID...

I attended the Confederation Cup for at least 25 years in a row. We would treat the Sunday afternoon as a large family gathering and dozens of members attended from a 100 mile radius. It literally was always a high-lite of our summer.

That all ended when you switched to night racing. For whatever reason that was, you certainly lost a lot of customers. Over the last several years I have talked to dozens of harness people who would love to drive out to Flamboro for Sat or Sun afternoon racing. But driving back to Toronto late at night is not going to
happen.
Sad to say, But I truly miss afternoons at the great half mile track.
