Trot Insider has learned that Sir Jeff, a four-year-old Jeremes Jet gelding, had to be euthanized after having been involved in an accident Sunday, June 16 at Inverness Raceway in Nova Scotia.

The accident came during the ninth race of the Sunday program.

There are few details at this time, but Trot Insider has learned that Sir Jeff suffered a serious leg injury.

After having been racing in Ontario, Sir Jeff had just made the move to the Maritimes for new owner Kenneth Passerini, who also trains and drives.

Trot Insider has also learned that besides some bumps, scrapes and bruises, all of the other horses and drivers in the race escaped without injury.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Sir Jeff.

Earlier in the card, reinsman Redmond Doucet recorded five straight driving wins with Prince Harrod, Up The Ante, You Gotta See This, Dontlooknow and Cam Cool.

Up The Ante ($9) posted the biggest win margin of the day at 18 lengths for Doucet and trainer Louis Beaton. The local reinsman also steered Dontlooknow ($3.80), now three-for-three this year, to a two and three-quarter length score for Alex MacQuarrie while his other winners prevailed by less than a length. Doucet also won with Prince Harrod ($8.60) for Doug MacDonald, You Gotta See This ($3.90) for new trainer Stanley Harper Jr., and Cam Cool ($4.50) for James Copley.

Doucet now has 12 wins on the year from 28 starts and boasts a 0.591 driving average. Lifetime, he has driven 377 winners while accumulating close to $430,000 in purse earnings.
