SUNBURY, OH – Things happened at last year’s Ohio Selected Jug Sale that people thought they’d never see in the Buckeye State. Horses selling for six figures, big names like Ron Burke and Jonas Czernyson actively bidding big dollars and horses with even modest pedigrees flying off the shelves.

There is nothing quite as hot in harness racing these days as a horse bred in Ohio, a state where the industry has done a 180-degree turn thanks to the implementation of slot machines at the local racetracks. The slots brought the Jug Sale back to life after it had been shut down for four years and bought the buyers out in droves.
