A great season for the stable juniors

It has been another good season for stable junior drivers Matt Anderson, Bronson Munro and Jack MacKinnon. We look at their achievements.

Top of the class is clearly Matt Anderson, the premiership winner on 43 wins, some six wins ahead of his closest challenger, northern reinsman Benjamin Butcher. Matt was a late season addition to the Woodend Beach team but never looked back reining home some good winners in his charge for the title. Matt has also started training a small, but so far successful team of his own and with wins to Pitch Perfect and Brian, from just two starters, he has already shown he will be a force to be reckoned with in years to come.

Jack MacKinnon has also had a good season, equalling his best tally of 16 wins out of the Pukekohe base. Jack finished 4th in terms of the northern junior drivers and continues to make great leaps as a horseman under Robert's tutelage.

Bronson Munro was another welcome addition to the Woodend Beach stable this year after a few years out of the game. He is a driver who has really come on and with 10 wins from 115 drives Bronson has done particularly well.

The Robert Dunn team finished the season with 96 wins, just coming up short of another seasonal century of wins. There have been a number of highlights this season, but the reemergence of Alta Orlando in the open class ranks and John's six win bag at the Blenheim summer meeting are two standouts.

John has had another good season as a driver also, finishing in third place in the drivers' premiership with 93 wins, behind the leading pair of Blair Orange and Dexter Dunn.
