Brian Loney owns and trains his recent acquisition – the horse came to his barn about five weeks ago. Aaron Merriman was in the sulky for the winning drive.
Dragon Striker (Dragon Again – Lady’s Portrait – Arturo) started from the rail. He left from the gate and led every call through fractions of :26.4, :54.3, 1:21.2 and 1:48.4, besting his closest competitor by 4-1/2lengths.
Dragon Striker now has four wins in 12 starts this year. Saturday’s victory represents his 15th career score and bolstered his bankroll to $145,971. He was heavily favored and returned $3.20 to win. (Northfield)
