One of the outstanding colt trotters of his time and later one of the foremost sires of early speed, Dillon Axworthy was foaled in 1910 as the property of C. M. Buck, Fairbault, Minnesota. He was by Axworthy out of Adioo Dillon. As a colt he went to a new owner, A. B. Coxe of Paoli, Pennsylvania and was trained by Joseph Serrill. Dillon Axworthy won most of his starts in his short racing career and was retired to stud. After the death of Coxe in 1926, he was purchased by Hanover Shoe Farms in Pennsylvania. He became one of the farm's foundation stallions and his offspring included Margaret Dillon, Bertha Dillon, Dean Hanover, Hanover's Bertha and many others. Dillon Axworthy died at the age of 29 at Hanover Shoe Farms on October 3, 1939.
