69th Edition of The Little Brown Jug
September 18, 2014
A trailer for the movie Johnny Longshot was recently released including footage from the 2013 Delaware County Fair meet and the Little Brown Jug.
The full-length harness racing movie will star Emilio Estevez who will be playing the lead character, John West, who, after a career as a Thoroughbred jockey, turns his sights to Standardbred racing.
Estevez, 50, has a long list of film credits including the Mighty Ducks, The Breakfast Club and Young Guns. Estevez is a lifelong fan of horse racing thanks in part to his father, actor Martin Sheen.
"I've been a racing fan my whole life. My dad used to take me to the track when I was a kid, and then I became a fan on my own."
The film is expected to be released in 2014.
