Wiggle It Jiggleit Back In To Go

Published: September 27, 2019 01:27 pm EDT

The 2015 U.S. Horse of the Year, Wiggle It Jiggleit will have a homecoming Monday (September 30) as he returns to the scene of one of his most memorable performances.

The Harrington Raceway track record holder, who is based in Harrington, drew post five in the sixth race, the featured $20,000 Open Pace. Owned by George Teague Jr. and Teague Racing Partnership, the seven-year-old son of Mr Wiggles recently returned to racing action after a three-year break.

Adored by racing fans, he is remembered locally for a dazzling 1:49 track and world record performance at Harrington as a three-year-old in 2015 in addition to his many stakes wins on the national stage, including an epic performance when he won the Little Brown Jug as a sophomore.

He made his much-anticipated return to the races on September 19 at Delaware, Ohio, where he finished second. He has won 38 of 52 career races and banked more than $4 million in his career. He is trained by Clyde Francis.

First post time for Monday’s 14-race program is 4:30 p.m.




This is a far more talented field than what WIJI faced in Delaware Ohio last week. That race was for non-winners of $30k in 2019; this race is for the best horses on the grounds. Four of them have already earned over $100k this year and every one of them has already visited the winners circle at least 5 times in 2019.
