Maier, Page Reach Victory Milestones At Scioto

Published: June 9, 2022 11:35 pm EDT

The Thursday race program at Eldorado Scioto Downs turned into one to remember for both Tim Maier and Chris Page.

Maier has been eyeing his 1,000th training win for several months. That feat finally came in the second race with Cantfindabettorman. The five-year-old gelded son of Bettors Delight was driven across the wire by Austin Hanners in 1:54.1.

Maier began his training career in 1991. His best year to date has been 2010 with 154 wins. At the age of 68, his lifetime earnings now read $4,464,744.

“I’m happy to have done it here [in Ohio]. I was born here,” said Maier when reminiscing. Maier spent decades racing in California before returning to Lebanon where he now resides with his wife.

On the driving side, Page reached his 6,000th lifetime win in Race 9 behind Lovely Munro. The four-year-old mare by Mcardle is trained by J D Perrin for Ameer Najor.

Page began his driving career in 2000 at his hometown county fair in Mount Vernon. Although his first start landed him a sixth-place finish, Page has now bankrolled over $55 million in lifetime earnings.

Racing continues Friday at 3 p.m. with the second leg of the Buckeye Stallion Series highlighting the program.
