MILESTONE FOR JACK DAILEY — At right, Dailey is pictured in the winner’s circle with Twinspeak after driving to his 3,000th career victory at the Fayette County Fair Wednesday afternoon, July 19, 2017.


On a hot Wednesday during a hot week at the Fayette County Fair, veteran harness driver Jack Dailey reached a career milestone, winning his 3,000th career race in the sulky behind Twinspeak.

“I’ve been doing this a long time,” Dailey said. “Since I was 15 years old.”

Asked about the key to his success, his longevity, Dailey replied, “I’m just trying to make a living, that’s it.”

Dailey was informed about a month ago that he was nearing the 3,000-win mark for his career.

“It’s been a countdown since then,” Dailey said. “But, I got it on my own, that makes it even sweeter.”

Dailey is a Fayette County native who lives in Jamestown.

Harness racing continues at the fair Saturday at noon.
