Lincoln track report


LINCOLN, Neb. - Local rider J.R. Dailey is planning an addition to Lincoln's annual recognition of the Jockeys Across America Day fundraiser on July 10, the last Saturday of the meeting.

Dailey, an accomplished artist and musician, has some prints he is interested in contributing to a raffle and also is working with other riders in putting together a local band to play that weekend. He has recently been sitting in at Duggan's Pub in the downtown area on Mondays and is helping to bring some attention to the track.

Dailey has also done art shows to help the Don MacBeth Disabled Riders Fund at Emerald Downs, Texas, and Canada. His most popular piece is a signed pencil sketch print of Gary Stevens.

* Defending training champion David Anderson picked up the pace last weekend and got the most out of jockey R.D. Williams's string of eight consecutive victories as he saddled five winners last weekend. Williams was aboard for all three of Anderson's wins on Friday evening and also rode two winners for the trainer on Saturday. Anderson is now tied for the lead in the standings with Jim Compton at five wins each.
