Downbytheseaside wins Jug Preview

World champion and Messenger Stakes winner DOWNBYTHESEASIDE (by SOMEBEACHSOMEWHERE) sent his seasonal earnings over the $1-million mark when he captured the $125,000 Jug Preview at Scioto Downs, Ohio in 1:51 on Saturday (September 9).

Starting from the pole, the three-year-old colt settled down in second position before driver Brian Sears sooled him to the front at the three-eighths mark.

From thereon DOWNBYTHESEASIDE remained in control, holding his challengers at bay to score by 1-1/2 lengths. The colt improved his lifetime record to 26 starts for 17 wins and eight placings for nearly $1.6 million in stakes.

His next engagement will be on Thursday (September 21) in the Little Brown Jug.
