They have a lot in common. Both are talented. Both are trained in Delaware, are modestly bred and wear the label of over achieving underdog. But only one can be No. 1.
The battle for supremacy in the 3-year-old male pacing division will be on the line tonight at Pocono Downs in the $500,000 Max Hempt. And while there are several top horses in the race, it’s likely that it will be won by either Wakizashi Hanover or Wiggle It Jiggleit, who were one-two, respectively, in the Pepsi North America Cup. Since, both won eliminations for tonight’s showdown.
