Blackjack Bob, Bronco’s Jig Return to Track After Injury Layoffs

Aug. 10, 2007 — The horses will be off and running at the Randall “Doc” James track Sunday as part of an eight-race card presented by TRAXCO.
Many of the trainers will use Sunday’s races as the final tuneup for the annual Labor Day races, which are expected to draw several top thoroughbreds from across St. Thomas. One local steed the fans will watch closely is Blackjack Bob, coming off on an injury he suffered in his stable a couple months ago.
He has only run one race since coming to the territory, but that race was a thrilling debut victory over Zirito May 29. In that race, Blackjack Bob collared Zirito in the stretch, then edged away to win by a long neck.
Another notable return to competition will be native-bred sensation Bronco’s Jig, who will make his first start in several months. Bronco’s Jig was one of a crop of talented up-and-coming native thoroughbreds last year, but the injury bug got to him, as well, and he has been on the shelf for some time now.
