For the first time since 2003, the $298,100 Jugette for 3-year-old filly pacers on Wednesday, Sept. 17, at the Delaware, Ohio, fairgrounds will need three eliminations. Twenty-two horses were dropped into the box on Friday morning, necessitating the three elims. The top three finishers in each elim will return for the second heat in which the winner will be declared the 2014 Jugette champion.
The 2013 Breeders Crown 2-Year-Old Filly champion Uffizi Hanover, whose lone wins this year in 10 starts came in the Fan Hanover elims and final, drew post 1 in the second elimination with driver David Miller. One of three Jimmy Takter-trained Jugette hopefuls, Uffizi Hanover is the richest sophomore filly pacer this year with $301,528 in earnings. The elim also includes Pennsylvania Sires Stakes winner Beach Gal and Adioo Volo winner Allstar Racing.
Also Encouraging drew the outside post 7 in the first elimination for driver David Miller and trainer Casie Coleman, the same team behind 2011 Jugette champ Idyllic. Also Encouraging has yet to miss a check in 2014 in 14 starts, with her four victories including the Shady Daisy.
The third elimination includes the Larry Remmen-trained Sandbetweenurtoes, whose eight wins in nine starts this year includes the Mistletoe Shalee af the Meadowlands, and Miss New Jersey winner Gettingreadytoroll, who races out of the Takter barn.
