Combined with his father's win in 2013, Dallas's win Wednesday gave the Seavey family title to victories in four straight Iditarods and propelled Dallas into rarefied air. Only six other mushers in race history have three or more victories, a list topped by five-time champion Rick Swenson. Seavey gave full credit to the dogs. "As long as you take care of the dog team and make good decisions, good things will happen,'' he said.
Defending Iditarod champion Dallas Seavey wasn’t in any rush to return to the trail, holding a lead of more than four hours. Compare that to a year ago, when he left the same checkpoint some three hours behind four-time champion Jeff King.Alaska Dispatch News
