10-year-old Casimir Jitterbug went out a winner in his final start at Woodbine Racetrack, Saturday night.
The Andrew Harris trainee captured a $22,000 overnight in 1:50.4 to cap off a career that saw him win 60 times, earn over $1 million and take a mark of 1:49.3 at Mohawk. Originally trained by Mario Rivest, Casimir Jitterbug raced in his early career in Sudbury before moving onto the Woodbine circuit and racing for trainers Gregg McNair and O’Sullivan.
The son of Sir Luck moved south of the border for O’Sullivan in the spring of 2014 and would eventually join the Harris barn in the summer of 2016.
Harris brought Casimir Jitterbug back to Woodbine for the final two starts of his career and the classy veteran will now rejoin original trainer Rivest for his retirement.
