69th Edition of The Little Brown Jug
September 18, 2014
Mark MacDonald and Lucky Man set a world record for aged pacing geldings of 1:49 2/5 in the $46,250 Winbak Farm Pace.
MacDonald sent the five-year-old Camluck gelding right after the lead and set the fractions of :26, :54 4/5 and 1:21 3/5. Nob Hill High (Daniel Dube) challenged the eventual leader, but a :27 4/5 last quarter sealed the deal and Lucky Man was clear by 3 1/4 lengths at the wire.
It has been a good couple of days for trainer Casie Coleman and owner Thomas Hill of Great Britian. Less than 24 hours earlier, the same connections stood in the winner’s circle for their Jugette victory with Western Silk.
