Montrell Teague will be heading to Ohio on a high note. The 25-year-old pilot won four races on the Harrington Raceway program Thursday as he prepares to leave for Scioto Downs to drive reigning horse of the year Wiggle It JIggleit in the $225,000 Jim Ewart Memorial at Scioto Downs Saturday.
For the third straight night a driver won four races at Harrington. On Tuesday it was Victor Kirby, Jim Morand accomplished the feat on Wednesday and on Thursday Teague had the grand slam on the 11-race program.
Teague's win parade was primarily aboard 2-year-olds as McMaedle ($2.20), Alone Hanover ($3.20) and Liberty School ($2.10) were all victorious. Paradise Lost ($5.40) was Teague's remaining win as he inches closer to 1,000 career wins with 982. Two of the winners were trained by Clyde Francis and owned by Teague's father, George Teague Jr.
Ross Wolfenden had a driving triple.
Live racing continues at Harrington Raceway on a Monday through Thursday schedule through October 20. Harrington's marquee event of the year, the $150,000 Bobby Quillen Memorial, will take place September 19.
