Trotter of the Year Jujubee qualifies at Pocono

Wilkes-Barre, PA — Jujubee, 2021’s Trotter of the Year, returned to the racetrack Wednesday morning (Aug. 3) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, winning a qualifier in 1:55.4 with trainer Greg Wright Jr. in the sulky.

The 4-year-old son of Creatine, owned by Jon Erdner, made every pole a winning one in his morning session, going pedestrian opening splits of :29.4 and :59.3, increasing the speed down the backstretch to reach the three-quarters in 1:28, and then hitting a higher gear to come his last quarter in :27.4.

The winner of the Breeders Crown and Kentucky Futurity last season, Jujubee had put in a 1:56.1 qualifier at Spring Garden Ranch on April 13; after that, it was determined to delay Jujubee’s 2022 racetrack campaign. The fast trotter’s qualifier would give every indication that he is back on course to soon be meeting up with the sport’s top trotters.
