  • 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.

  • 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.

    It was never going to be an easy day and so it proved for the first ten races on the programme. But a winning double in the last two races gave much than a pass mark for the day.

  • Its a big welcome back to American Tart
    Away from the track for nearly seven months, top race-mare American Tart showed that she has lost none of her speed in a convincing win over favourite Bonnie Joan.
