LEBANON, OH – Now ten years old, millionaire trotter Dayson returned to the racing wars following an eight month layoff with a convincing 1:54.1 triumph in Miami Valley’s top conditioned trot on Tuesday (Jan. 10). After a couple runnerup finishes in qualifers, the accomplished son of Conway Hall added to his $1,231,152 career bankroll by wiring a good field in the $18,000 event.
Driver Chris Page sent the 6-5 favorite directly to the front and played “catch me if you can” with eventual runnerup Dans Credit (Jordan Ross) and show finishers Double A Goldrush (Trace Tetrick). It was the 44th victory in 110 lifetime starts for Dayson, but just the second in the last two years. His other most recent win was April 1, 2022, at The Meadowlands in 1:54. Dayson took his lifetime mark of 1:51.2 almost seven years ago as a three-year-old.
Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, J & T Silva and Larry Karr own the veteran millionaire gelding.
The score was Page’s third on the night and matched both Tetrick and Brett Millers’ hat tricks for leading driver honors on the day.
Racing resumes Wednesday afternoon (Jan. 11) with the normal 4 p.m. post time.
