Rockin In Heaven will be one of the pacers looking to knock off Wiggle It Jiggleit.

With no eliminations necessary, an outstanding group of nine four-year-old pacers will compete in the 2016 Confederation Cup at Flamboro Downs.

The field of nine will battle for a purse of $244,000 in the Confederation Cup on Sunday, May 15.

U.S. Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit headlines the field of nine. The George Teague stable star has won four of five starts to begin his four-year-old season.

Last year, Wiggle It Jiggleit won 22 of 26 starts for earnings of over $2.2 million en route to being named America’s Horse of the Year. His list of accolades also includes victories in The Meadowlands Pace, Little Brown Jug and Progress Pace.

Trained by Clyde Francis and driven by Montrell Teague, Wiggle It Jiggleit will prepare for the Confederation Cup in the Preferred Pace this Saturday at Mohawk Racetrack.

Here is the full group of nine four-year-old pacers, in alphabetical order, to enter the Confederation Cup.
