State Rep. Bobby Outten recently presented a House of Representatives' Tribute to the team behind one of the most successful racehorses in Delaware history.

George Teague Jr., the owner of Wiggle It Jiggleit, was commended for the accomplishments of his horse and the team that trains, handles, and races him. Teague Stable is located just east of Harrington.

Wiggle It Jiggleit led all harness racing horses in North America with $2.18 million in purses last year in route to being named the 2015 Dan Patch Award Horse of the Year by the U.S. Harness Writers Association. The 3-year-old male is the only horse since 1982 to be both the season's winningest pacer while also being named Horse of the Year.
