George Teague Jr. was at Scioto Downs on Saturday night to see his homebred 2-year-old filly pacer Miss Me Yet capture a $225,000 Ohio Sires Stakes championship, and Teague said he doesn't plan for it to be his only trip to Ohio this month. He plans to supplement his 3-year-old pacer Wiggle It Jiggleit to the Little Brown Jug, set for Sept. 24 at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.
Wiggle It Jiggleit, the winner of the Meadowlands Pace, Milstein Memorial, Hempt Memorial and Battle of the Brandywine, will have to be supplemented to the Jug. Horses who win either the North America Cup, Meadowlands Pace, Cane and Messenger who are not eligible to the Jug can be supplemented at a cost of $45,000.
Teague also said he plans on donating a percentage of Wiggle It Jiggleit's earnings in the Jug to help horseman Brad Hanners, who was recently diagnosed with cancer and is about to begin treatment at The Ohio State University Medical Center. Hanners, a native of Ohio, does not have health insurance. A fundraiser was held at Scioto Downs on Saturday.
