Son of Dictator and Midnight, Jay-Eye-See was the world's first 2:10 trotter. This milestone in harness racing history was recorded at Providence, Rhode Island on August 1, 1884, reducing by a quarter of a second the world mark set by Maud S. three years earlier. The black gelding was only king for a day, however. Maud S. lowered the record to 2:09 3/4 the very next day in Cleveland, Ohio. Although his career was at the trot, Jay-Eye-See was double-gaited and in 1892, at age fourteen, he paced a 2:06 3/4 mile, one second off the world record. He died in 1909 at age thirty-one.
