2 DVD disc set. Like new jewel case for set. DVDs in New condition. Commentary by Dom Tiberi, WBNS-10TV and Phil Pikleny. Scarce video. Welcome to the Little Brown Jug Website! The Little Brown Jug is the most prestigious 3-year-old pacing race in North America. Each year more people journey to Delaware, Ohio to witness the "Jug" than to see any other harness race. In 1997, over 56,000 racing fans were in attendance. This is the largest crowd in history known to watch a harness race. A horse has to win two heats to be declared the winner of the Jug. There are typically two or three elimination heats with the top finishing horses returning for a second heat. If no horse has won two heats, the winners return again for a final race. This makes for a very interesting afternoon of racing. Little Brown Jug day is almost like an Oktoberfest ... People come early to tailgate. Sports Illustrated once said that the biggest cocktail party in the state of Ohio is at the Delaware County Fairgrounds on Jug day.
