Dover, DE --- Wiggle It Jiggleit downed eight rivals for his 21st victory of the season in the $35,000 Hap Hansen Progress Pace elimination at Dover Downs on Monday (Nov. 23) while Triple Bottom Line pulled a 7-1 upset to win the $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund final for 2-year-old filly trotters.

Wiggle It Jiggleit won the Hap Hansen Progress Pace elimination in a time of 1:49.

While the DSBF $100,000 final was the biggest purse event on the card, one of the biggest crowds of the early meet came to see George Teague Jr. Inc.’s Wiggle It Jiggleit and they were not disappointed.

The dark bay world champion, conditioned by Clyde Francis, rolled away from the starting gate to take the lead. Driver Montrell Teague never looked back, negotiating a :26 opening quarter, :54.4 half and took his eight foes to the three-quarters in 1:22.1.

A :26.4 final panel gave the Mr Wiggles-Mozzi Hanover offspring a decisive 3-1/2 length victory in 1:49. A Delaware-sired 54-1 shot, Remember Me VK, sat second for most of the mile and stayed there for driver Eric Goodell. Dealt A Winner and David Miller, who took a shot at the leader on the backstretch, held on for third.

Triple Bottom Line won the $100,000 DSBF final in 2:00.4.

Veteran trainer-driver Jeff Fout found the passing lane to his liking with Triple Bottom Line in the DSBF final, overtaking dueling leaders Cicada’s Song, who cut the mile for Carlo Poliseno from outside post eight, and challenger Epic Smash and Pat Berry who battled on the outside from the backstretch on until the final strides when Triple Bottom Line flew down the lane to post a 2:00.4 victory. Cicada’s Song and Epic Smash were second and third, respectively.

It was the second trip to the winner’s circle in eight starts for the three-time second–place finisher bred and owned by Winbak Farm. The CR Commando-Current Yield freshman now has won $75,800 this campaign.

Montrell Teague also drove the winner of the $20,000 DSBF consolation trot, steering owner-trainer Kevin Switzer’s Jasmine K, a Master Lavec-Visioness K filly, home in 2:04.4. Rhythm N Blues (Ross Wolfenden) was second in front of Devlin (Poliseno).

Marcus Miller piloted Swing City, the only 3-year-old in the $15,500 male pace on the undercard. Nick Surick trains and co-owns the United Ace-Cyber Cities gelding with Rocco Ruffolo and Ervin Miller Stables. Brody (Sean Bier) and B’s Weddie (Ross Wolfenden) were second and third.

Corey Callahan had a triple while Montrell Teague, Tim Tetrick and Allan Davis each won two races during the card. Trainer Dylan Davis and owner Tom Lazzaro had triples while trainer Wayne Givens had a double.

On Tuesday, another $100,000 DSBF title is on the line for colt and gelding trotters.
