No Pan Intended became the first Ohio-owned horse since 1973 to win the Little Brown Jug when he paced to a 1:53 win in the second and decisive heat before an announced crowd of more than 52,000 at the Delaware, Ohio fairgrounds Thursday afternoon (Sept. 18).

After winning his elimination, No Pan Intended drew the rail in the second heat and driver David Miller used it to full advantage as he left quickly to force everyone to take a seat behind. Allowed to set first-half fractions of :28 and :57.1, No Pan Intended had plenty left, pacing his final half in :55.4 to secure the victory.

"I wasn't going to let anybody go (to the front)," said a shaking Miller, who won 10 races on the card, in the winner's circle. "This is a dream come true."

Longshot Make It Brief, driven by Ron Pierce, followed the winner from the trailing post and benefited from that trip to finish second. Armbro Animate was third for driver John Campbell.

With the victory, the Ivan-Sugg trained No Pan Intended is two-thirds of the way to Triple Crown glory. Having won the Cane Pace and now the Little Brown Jug, No Pan Intended will have to win the Messenger Stakes at The Meadows next month to earn his place in history. In trying to become the 10th Triple Crown winner and the first since Blissfull Hall in 1999 to turn the prestigious trifecta, owner Bob Glazer will have to pay a $35,000 supplemental entry fee to the Messenger as the sophomore colt is currently not eligible.

No Pan Intended's victory in the $605,050 Jug also gives dam Classic Wish a Jug double. A son of Pacific Fella, No Pan Intended's Cam Card's Shark half-brother Bettor's Delight won the 2001 Jug.
