Anybody have a clue to the first name?

the following text accompanied a photo from Washington Park, in the March 11, 1964 Harness Horse:

Making his first start after being away from the races since 1961, the Sampson Hanover gelding Sir Sampson moves away in the stretch of the seventh race, Monday, March 2, for a length and a half win over Bounder (2-Bob Farrington), Melody Jubil ( 6-W. Dillon) is third to the 8-year-old in the 2:104/5 trip.

Wilderness you are an inspiration. When you aren't around I don't know that the history of the sport will ever be the same.
Of course I have no idea to your question. Hope you get an answer  thumbs up

Searching my dataset on "Dillon" returned more than 3,500 results.
 There were many horses with Dillon as part of the name. Perhaps Dillon Axworthy the most famous.

 I skimmed about a thousand of 3,500 titles looking for Chicago references with no results.

Wilderness - I believe there was a driver (William Bill Dillon). Don't quote me on it though.

Hey Wilderness - There was a driver named William Dillon who wore gray and orange silks and drove trotters named All-American and Funny Money.

Many thanks Humpy.

 With your help the following from the Oct 17, 1956 Harness Horse and Jackson raceway:

A 2:071/5 effort by Lesota's Counsel was just enough to take Wednesday's feature; Bill Dillon being forced to hustle his mount to hold fast-closing Randy's Boy safe. It was the 16th score of '56 for the seven-year-old.
