LEBANON, OH. - Lifeonthebeach A, despite drawing the outermost post position, dominated the $25,000 championship leg of the Bill Dailey Memorial Medley on Saturday (Feb. 22) at Miami Valley Raceway.

Contested over a mile and a quarter, the 7-5 favorite was sent on his way from the get-go by driver Chris Page and cruised through fractions of :28.3, :58, 1:27 and 1:55 before tacking on a :28.1 final panel to score handily in 2:23.1. Stablemates Champion Rock (Tyler Smith) and Royale Rose (Brett Miller) from the Dan Stone Stable finished second and third.

The winner is a 6-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere now sports 18 career wins in 55 tries and increased his lifetime earnings to $129,652 with the triumph. He won the initial Dailey Memorial leg, which was a 5/8ths mile dash, in 1:08.3, then suffered an unfortunate incident in leg two at one mile when his crupper snapped and Page was forced to pull him out of the race. His confidence wasn't compromised, however, as he won for the fourth time in six 2020 seasonal starts as the 7-5 favorite.

Lifeonthebeach A is owned by Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Two races later, the weekly $25,000 Open I Pace was won by My Hero Ron (Tyler Smith), who topped Fan Of Terror (John DeLong) and Shagnwiththedragon (Sam Widger) in 1:50.3. It was the second win in 2020 for My Hero Ron, but the first in Open company. Danny Dubeansky trains the 8-year-old son of Well Said for owner Brian Witt.

A $20,000 Open II Pace was captured by Street Boy (Brett Miller) over Big Bad Mike (Trevor Smith) and The Dark Shadow (Widger) in 1:51.3. Frederick Linz owns the 5-year-old son of American Ideal, who now has five victories in eight starts this meet, the others all coming in $30,000 claimers, and a 2020 bankroll of $56,825 already this year.

Miami Valley will race three consecutive matinees at 2:05 p.m. on Sunday (Feb. 23), Monday (Feb. 24) and Tuesday (Feb. 25).
