Harrington: Cozy draw for Wiggle It Jiggleit in Quillen


The draw for the September 19 edition of the $150,000 10th Annual Bobby Quillen Memorial at Harrington Raceway took place Tuesday afternoon (9/13) and will feature a rich field of eight pacers that includes reigning 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit.

After a busy schedule of traveling the past several months that covered thousands of miles, the 4-year-old world champion pacer will return to his hometown to race where he set the world record for 3-year-old geldings on a half-mile racetrack last year with a 1:49 clocking.

Owned by George Teague Jr. and Teague Racing Partnership for Harrington-based trainer Clyde Francis, Wiggle It Jiggleit drew the coveted rail in the eight horse field that sports a combined lifetime bankroll in excess of $8 million. The field includes top pacers Lightning Stable’s Mcardles Lightning, 2015 Quillen champ Bamond Racing’s Mach It So, John Craig’s Luckbewithyou, Rock and Roll Stable’s American Primetime, Burke Racing and Weaver Bruscemi’s Rockin Ron, Lauretta Galm’s Keystone Velocity and Robert Cooper Stables and J&T Silva’s Mel Mara, who set a track record for aged pacing stallions (1:50 1/5) at Harrington on Monday September 12.

The race will be the final leg of the late pick four (races 7-10). The Quillen Memorial honors the popular late long time Delaware legislator who devoted his life to public service and was a regular at the racetrack.

Post time is 5 p.m.
