Delaware, OH --- Lather Up and Courtly Choice are the top choices in the Little Brown Jug Future Pool #1.

Lather Up has been tapped the 3-1 favorite based on his recent win in the $275,000 Ohio Sire Stakes final in track record 1:49.3 over the sloppy track at Scioto Downs. The homebred son of I’m Gorgeous has won $738,965 for Gary and Barbara Iles. Lather Up has won 14 of 19 career starts including the $760,000 North America Cup. Lather Up will be driven by Montrell Teague and is trained by Clyde Francis, the same connections that won the 2015 Little Brown Jug with Wiggle It Jiggleit.

The 9-2 second pick is Courtly Choice. The bay son of Art Major has won nine starts this season and has banked more than $700,000 lifetime. Courtly Choice is owned by Huff Racing Stable, Mac & Heim Stables, Daniel Plouffe and Touch Stone Farms. Courtly Choice was not Jug eligible, but thanks to his win in the $701,830 Meadowlands Pace he is now eligible with a $45,000 supplemental payment.

Rounding out the top three is Stay Hungry (6-1), who has a chance to be the 11th horse in history to win the Triple Crown should he win the Little Brown Jug. The Somebeachsomewhere colt won the $281,000 Cane Pace and the $500,000 Messenger Stake. Stay Hungry has earned $1.1 million for Bradley Grant and the Estate of Irwin Samelman.

The second future pool will be from Sunday (Sept. 16) through Wednesday (Sept. 19).
