Jordanís Jewell named Illinois County Fair Horse of the Month

Jordanís Jewell has been named Illinois County Fair Horse of the Month by the Illinois Standardbred Owners and Breeders Association in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Bureau of County Fairs and Horse Racing.

The Prairie Stateís county fair season kicked off June 13 at the Decatur-Macon County fair in Decatur, and will conclude September 4 in Sandwich at the DeKalb County fair. Jordanís Jewell was selected for the period from June 13 through July 15. Successive honorees will be named August 15 and September 4.

Jordanís Jewell, a 2-year-old pacing daughter sired by Mantese from the Ideal Society mare Loafster, is undefeated through five starts at the fairs. Bred by Ron and Deloris Phillips of Petersburg, IL, the filly is owned, trained, and driven by Freddie Patton Jr. of Clinton, MS. She took her mark of 2:00 in track-record fashion at the Jasper County Fair in Newton, IL June 29 and has earned over $5,000.

Randy Callahan, associate judge at the Newton meet said, ďJordanís Jewell cut the mile with Smashy Cerise (Kelcey Perrymond) in hot pursuit, who was also undefeated at the time. Jordanís Jewell held off her late charge in the lane to win in a new track record for 2-year-old pacing fillies. That was probably the best horse race Iíve seen this year.Ē
