Let go at a juicy 20-1, Jumpinthejailhouse shot through the Lightning Lane to pull off the upset in Wednesday’s $15,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Jumpinthejailhouse was a ground-saving third for most of the mile but lacked racing room as the field turned for home. When the Lightning Lane opened, however, the 5-year-old Jailhouse Jesse-Illiad’s Lady gelding knifed inside for Bryce Brocklehurst and edged Tricky Nick by a nose in a career-best 1:54.4. Trustworthy Kid, returning from a layoff of nearly seven months, rallied for show.
Harold Brocklehurst owns and trains Jumpinthejailhouse, who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $135,605.
