Scratches in Jugette and Jug; Jug Undercard Preview
Date Posted: 09/16/14

The Cam Land LLC owned Cammikey has been drawn from the Little Brown Jug due to illness. The Somebeachsomewhere was scheduled to leave from post #8 in the second elimination.

John Campbell has been tapped to drive Sometimes Said in the second elimination.

Beach Body was drawn from the 44th Jugette.

The Jug undercard is set and the racing fans will get their fill of quality fields with 22 races with the potential of a 23rd race, the LBJ race-off (if necessary).

Bee A Magician, the 2013 Horse of the Year, headlines the $121,000 Ms Versatility Final. The field of seven also features Frau Blucher and Maven, both of which established new world records during last year's meet.

The $118,200 Old Oaken Bucket may shape up as a duel between Datsyuk and Il Sogno Dream. Datsyuk has been first or second in 8 of 11 starts this season. Il Sogno Dream was fourth in the $1.1 Hambletonian Final in early August.

One event that is missing from the traditional Jug day undercard is the Winbak Farm Pace for older horses. The event was cancelled this year due to lack of entries.

"We don't like to cancel an event, but we find ourselves in that position this year," noted Tom Wright, Director of Racing. "We still have a wonderful 23 race card, including the richest Little Brown Jug ever."

Total purses on Jug Day will exceed $1.2 million.

Jug Day will have a trio of guaranteed pool wagers; a $60,000 Pick 4, a $40,000 Pick 4 and a $25,000 Pick 3.

The Little Brown Jug can be seen on CBS Sports Network from 5:00 – 6:30 pm.

The post time on Thursday is 11:00 am.
