Aided by a second-quarter breather, Dayson drew away from the pocket-sitting Wind Of The North in the lane and captured Monday’s $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Dayson was looped from the gate and had to work hard for the lead on a subfreezing day. But the 5-year-old Conway Hall-Nervey’s Taurus gelding was refreshed by the 30.3 second panel Dave Palone gave him and downed Wind Of The North by 1 1/2 lengths in 1:56.3. TSM Photo Bugger rallied for show.
Ron Burke trains Dayson, who lifted his career bankroll to $987,712, for Burke Racing Stable, Our Horse Cents Stables, J&T Silva Stables and Rossie Smith. (The Meadows)
