The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Jay Wolf, Little Brown Jug — A pair of three-year-old colts have been supplemented into the 77th edition of the Little Brown Jug (Thursday, September 22), presented by the Ohio Harness Horseman’s Association, for $45,000.

Bythemissal is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Eric Good, Rich Lombardo Racing and Weaver Bruscemi and conditioned by Ron Burke.

He is the gelded son of Downbytheseaside and is looking to be the first Ohio bred Jug champ since BJ Scoot (1988).

Bythemissal had only one start as a two-year-old but had made up for lost time this season. He has amassed over $537,000 in earnings thanks to wins in the $350,000 Adios Pace Final and the $300,000 Carl Milstein Memorial.

Pleaseletmeknow was recently crowned as the New York Sire Stakes champion. He is trained by Travis Alexander for the Fiddler’s Creek Stable.

He is the homebred son of American Ideal. Pleaseletmeknow has eight seasonal wins in 12 starts and has earned $522,194 in his lifetime.

Supplemental entries have fared well in the Little Brown Jug. Two of the recent Jug champs were supplemental entries – Wiggle It Jiggleit (2015) and Courtly Choice (2018)

The complete field will be announced after the entry box closes on Monday, September 19th at 10:00 AM.
