About the Little Brown Jug
The one-day event takes place on the fastest half-mile track in harness racing. There are a number of legs to reach the eventual winner – it is always exciting!
The Little Brown Jug is the premier pacing classic for 3-year-olds. It is a very popular and spectacular event during the Delaware County Fair.
In 1939 this track was built, two years after the Delaware County Fair had been moved from Powell to a tract of land at the northern edge of Delaware City. The initial Little Brown Jug race was in 1946, with a purse of over $35,000. This year the purse will be around $1m.
This pacing stake maintains its reputation through the efforts of the Little Brown Jug Society also with the cooperation of the Delaware County Agricultural Society.
At this event, you can see and also greet North America’s leading trainers, drivers, and owners as you stroll around this backstretch of Delaware.
