Jacobs Jackpot struck the biggest jackpot of his career when he cruised to victory lane in the $10,600 Nova Scotia Stake for three-year-old pacing colts on Sunday afternoon at Inverness Raceway.

Driver Ryan Campbell sent the Mantwo colt to the lead from post three and carved out opening fractions of :29.4 and :58 before giving way to the oncoming The Rev and Danny Romo. The new leader took the field to the third quarter station in 1:27.2 and maintained a length and a half lead entering the stretch, but Jacobs Jackpot dug in and regained control for the 1:57.4 victory. The Rev finished one and a half lengths behind in second while favourite J B Bolt and Redmond Doucet came in third.

After going winless in three starts as a freshman, Jacobs Jackpot has won six of his 11 sophomore races, including a pair of Atlantic Sires Stakes divisions, while earning just over $18,000 in purses.

The brown colt was recently acquired by Inverness, N.S. owners Duncan MacPherson and Russell Copley and has since joined the Doug MacQuarrie stable.

Jacobs Jackpot paid $5.60 to win.

In regular racing action, favourite Macnamarra ($5.30) converted off a pocket trip to win the week's $1,500 top pacing class by six lengths in 1:58 flat with Colin Kelly in the driver's seat for trainer Robert MacLeod and local owner Roderick Smith.
