  • De Lancome too good in the slush at Timaru
    Considered good enough to mix it with some of the best fillies of her age in her previous eight starts, De Lancôme has always been a well regarded filly in the Robert Dunn stable. The only surprise is that it has taken her nine starts to register her maiden win, a win that came on a wet and gloomy Timaru afternoon.

  • Tuapeka Trick puts Westview Super Seventeen on the winners list
    It was never a case of if he would get his first win, but rather when, for Bettor's Delight three year old Tuapeka Trick. Good enough to run a Group Three placing as a two year old, he has raced against some nice types throughout his short career. But at Omakau on Tuesday, he dealt to his maiden opponents by just over two lengths, the first of many victories we hope for his great crew of owners.

At Addington this evening, she recorded her second win on the bounce, defeating the two favourites Don Domingo and Maverick.

  • John looking to carry on a good run of form
    By his own high standards, the start to this season, had been a quiet one for number one stable driver John Dunn. However, a great run of form over cup week, has been followed by more success over the last couple of days, both from catch drives. John looks to have a great chance of success in one of the day's features at Methven, the Green Mile for the trotters, in which he will again partner Harriet Of Mot.

  • Summer Wealth a big first up winner for stable
    The now five year old Mach Three gelding Summer Wealth was confidently backed on the tote today and never looked like letting down his supporters. After stepping really well, he was up disputing the pace from the 1700 and in front by the mile peg. He always looked to be travelling a treat for Johnny out in front and looked to have plenty left in the tank at the end of 2400m run in a moderate 3.04.7.

  • Woodstone puts it all together on big Ashburton track
    Colin Hair's cup week has turned out to be a ripper. On Tuesday at Addington, it was the brilliant, but enigmatic Sundees Son that was too good, even after an early gallop. Today at Ashburton, it was four year old Woodstone, a horse that has his own share of tricks, that was too good for a field of up to R70 trotters.
