He is the fifth of six foals out of the SJ's Photo mare Witty Girl 3,1;58.2f ($32,602) and is a half-brother to March Awareness (by Ken Warkentin) 4,1:54, a 29-race winner with $346,534 in earnings; and to Witty's Winner (by Jailhouse Jesse) 5,1:54.4s ($95,757).

Joggingtothebank picked the perfect time to break his maiden, trotting to a 1:59.2 win in the third OSS division for driver Danny Noble.
Owned by Julie Ann Sweet, Dale Sweet and trainer Marty Wollam, the chestnut son of Break The Bank K was a half-length winner over 39-1 Sand Cash (Tyler Smith), with 43-1 Last Mission (Josh Sutton) nailing down third-place money.
Joggingtothebank, who was sent off at 4-1 odds, upped his bankroll to $48,540 for his connections.
"He hasn't had any soundness issues, he's just been slow to mature," offered owner Dale Sweet. "He's still a baby who needs to grow up."
The lanky freshman was making his fifth lifetime start, having previously finished second in OSS leg three on Aug. 7 at Northfield; second in leg two on July 18 at Scioto; and fourth in the first leg at Northfield on July 8. (OSDF)
