CHESTER, PA - The millionaire racing racehorse Dayson overcame adversity in starting position and racing fortune to win the $18,000 featured harness racing trot at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon, able to rally after a fast half to win in 1:54.1. The victorious Conway Hall gelding was part of the quick early tempo, as driver Yannick Gingras had him four-wide early, then backed off and tucked midpack as Sylvesteramericanit wound up on the lead after a :26.4 quarter, Armageddon Seelster wound up in the pocket, and Izoh had to take a lot of fresh Philly air in the two-path. Things proceeded in that fashion to the :55.4 half, and then Gingras moved his trotter quickly two- and three-wide to get by the embattled leaders before the 1:24.3 three-quarters. Dayson continued on authoritatively to win by two lengths over Armageddon Seelster, who came through between horses to claim second place. Dayson pushed his career earnings to $1,136,677, and he furthered his reputation as a frequent winner, scoring for the tenth time this year and the 35th in his career, putting up a success ratio in the vicinity of 45% in both categories. Ron Burke conditions the talented veteran for Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby, and Lawrence Karr. The Cantab Hall gelding Mississippi Storm, who actually was the favorite in last week's top class while finishing second, saw the earnings combination break right for him, and he took advantage of a single-level drop to win the $14,500 co-feature trot in 1:54.2. Like Dayson, Mississippi Storm did not have it easy - parked early before tucking in for driver Marcus Miller, then having to move uncovered late in the backstretch - but he stayed on to get the job done by 1¼ lengths over closing Kinda Lucky Lindy. Mississippi Storm has now earned six figures in each of the last two seasons for trainer Tom Fanning and owner Joseph Smith. Marcus Miller and George Napolitano Jr. each recorded three wins on the Thursday card at Philly. From the PHHA / Harrah's Philadelphia

The filly division was raced over the same distance for the same 154,000€ purse. What a battle it was.

WILKES-BARRE, PA - The veteran Conway Hall gelding Dayson was able to overcome a first-over journey, defeating Joey Bats by a half length in 1:54.3 to take the $17,500 featured harness racing trot Sunday night at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Matt Kakaley kept the career winner of $1,118,127 midpack as first Sylvesteramerica IT and then Hill Of A Horse took command from the breaking leader The Lionking As near the quarter, then midrace moved Dayson to the outside to begin his grind forward. The nine-time seasonal winner never faltered, going to the lead in the stretch and then withstanding second-over Joey Bats for trainer Ron Burke and the ownership of Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, J&T Silva- Purnel & Libby, and Larry Karr (the last-named had the pacer named for him win in 1:50.1 over sloppy going at Philly earlier in the day). A trio of $17,000 events for developing younger horses served as subfeatures. In the one trotting division, the Chapter Seven sophomore colt Refi also found the first-out route the path to glory, catching pacesetter Always A Dream by half a length in 1:55. Tom Jackson drove the recent addition to the Ray Schnittker barn for the partnership of Greenhorse and Robert Rudolph. The two pacing co-features were split by sex. The event for fillies and mares saw the Bettor's Delight mare Persistent Bettor save ground most of the way for driver Anthony Napolitano, then slide wide at headstretch and rally to outfinish favored Demi Hill by ¾ of a length in 1:52. Trainer John Hallett, who has done very nicely on the local scene since coming over from Tioga Downs, conditions the winner for Geoffrey and Rick Howles. In the co-feature section for pacing males, the American Ideal gelding JK Musicman looked like his closing kick might come too late to catch Rebel Rouser, who had used the Pocono Pike to grab a midstretch advantage, but driver Eric Carlson hustled the Musicman home to a 1:50.4 victory by ¾ of a length. Gilbert Garcia-Herrera trains the winner of $111,266 for his son Gilbert Garcia-Owen. From the PHHA / Pocono Downs

Trois-Rivieres, QC - Former track record holder and two-time Quebec-Bred Champion Seeyou Men makes a return to the races at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday after a few months in the field. Seeyou Men starts from post four for driver Francis Picard in the third race, which is the featured Preferred Trot.

Then it was rest time according to Daniel Martin. "He has had no injuries," said Martin, "We just wanted to give him a nice break after making 20 starts." Seeyou Men scored his lifetime mark of 1:55.4 this season and last week won his qualifying race at H3R in 2:02.4 by three open lengths. He is listed in the morning line at odds of 7/2. "For this Sunday there is no pressure on Seeyou Men," Martin said. "He always gives everything he has. He is a very good horse." Capteur De Reve is also in the field and starts from the rail for driver Stephane Gendron. He is the only trotter who is a four-time Quebec Series Champion. The five-year-old gelding, also by Muscle Mass, is trained by Maxime Velaye for the Provoquante Stable of Mirabel, who bred and owns Capteur De Reve. Although winless since August 25 at Rideau Carleton Raceway, Capteur De Reve was second in his last start by a neck in 1:56.4 at Rideau Carleton.

Alek Chartrand trains and drives the three year old trotter who recorded his fourth consecutive victory when competing in the $9,000 co-feature on Wednesday. Faced with racing against Lucky June Bug (Frank Coppola Jr) who came into the day on a six-race win streak, Halliama beat that one to the punch in the early going and wound up on the front-end as an even money shot in the wagering. Halliama went coast-to-coast for Chartrand in 1:57.4, a time that was fastest of the three $9,000 events for New York sired trotters on the afternoon program.
