Diva's Image bests WIJI in Philly qualifier
« Return to News
The 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit finished second to the $590,000-plus winning mare Diva’s Image in a Tuesday morning qualifier at Harrah’s Philadelphia, but he posted by far his best clocking, 1:52.2, in this, his fourth qualifier after being away from the races for over three years.
Driver Montrell Teague sent the 7-year-old gelded son of Mr. Wiggles to the lead in the qualifier and posted fractions of :26.4, :55.4, and 1:23.4, opening up a four-length lead at the stretch call. But Diva’s Image, six lengths behind at the three-quarters, finished strongly for driver Tim Tetrick to go by and by a length over the pacesetting “Wiggle.”
Wiggle’s best time since his return had been 1:53.4, in winning his first qualifier back. (Harrah's Philadelphia/PHHA)
