“He’s a little bit of a special horse to everybody involved,” trainer Jim Campbell told Standardbred Canada back in 2011 after Dial had already won 15 of 47 career races and earned $1,012,257. “Mr. Siegel raised the horse. He was a good two-year-old and one of the top three-year-olds until he got hurt. Then he came back last year and showed that he’s a class horse. He’s one of those horses that is just a real nice horse to be around. You can’t help but love him." We love him too.
