Downs driver Daley collects his 1,000th career victory

VERNON — Vernon Downs driver Dan Daley earned his 1,000th-career victory, while Hay Goodlooking galloped to an Open pacing triumph during Saturday night’s 12-race program.

Daley guided the 10-year-old trotter Bacon Hill Scott to a front-striding 1:57.1 triumph in Saturday’s fifth race to reach the milestone mark.

Saturday’s score by Bacon Hill Scott was his second this year and 36th all-time.

After four consecutive second-place finishes in top tier pacing competition here, Hay Goodlooking finally gained a trip to the winner’s circle following the $9,500 featured ninth race. Rick Plano, the 20-program meeting’s second-leading driver and trainer, put the 6-year-old gelding on the lead off the starting gate and then held off the competition for the 1:51.1 first place finish.

It was one of three wins during the program for Plano.
