WIGGLE IT JIGGLEIT BEHIND 8-BALL IN YR 250G PACING INVITE
However, such is life in the big city, where WIJI returns this Saturday afternoon (Oct. 15th). Harness racing's richest horse ($1,499,337) of 2016 is going to have to work to add to that number, as the post position gods banished him behind the eight-ball for Yonkers Raceway's $250,000 Invitational Pace.
The quarter-million-dollar number goes as the 10th of 13 races Saturday afternoon (first post 1:10 PM), four races after Yonkers International Trot (post time 3:20 PM) and three after a $250,000 Invitational Trot.
Both trotting features go at the mile-and-a-quarter distance (part of a 'French four-pack'), with all other races at the flat mile.
As for Wiggle It Jiggleit, he returns to Westchester for the first time since competing in this past spring's George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series. He's been board-certified (14 wins, 6 seconds, 2 thirds) in all 22 seasonal starts and 48-of-49 lifetime.
Montrell Teague again does the honors for trainer Clyde Francis and co-owners George Teague Jr. and Teague Racing Partnership.
Levy series winner Bit of Legend N (Jordan Stratton) won the draw for the Saturday pacing invite.
