  • What a night for the Bagries and Dunns at Menangle
    Buoyed no doubt by the success of Kiwi gallopers Probabeel and Te Akau Shark earlier in the afternoon at Randwick, the Bagrie and Dunn families must have driven to Menangle last night with a degree of hope for their respective runners. But to see the dream result where now both of Bettors Heart and Alta Orlando are through to next week's Miracle Mile, would probably have been pushing the levels of optimism.

  • Soundslikeart completes perfect weekend for Yabby Dam Racing
    Four year old Art Major mare Soundslikeart has done a great job since coming to New Zealand and was at her best today, registering her first Addington victory. Appearing in a lot of trouble following a fading runner at the 500m, she stormed home up the pylons once the gap appeared, bettering favourite Woman In Gold right on the line.

  • New Zealand Record to Pretty Majestic sets up a great night for Diamond Racing
    It was expected to be a big night for the time last night with lots of great chances in both islands. The stable runners did not disappoint producing the four wins and a further two placings. It is hard to single out one winning performance, but the effort of Pretty Majestic in slashing a New Zealand Record that had stood for 23 years is particularly noteworthy.

  • Another busy Friday night for the team
    It will be another busy Friday night for the team with 15 runners to go around over both islands. John is up in Auckland tonight driving Need You Now, so Tim Williams, Bob Butt and Gavin Smith will deputise at Addington in his absence.

  • Good night for the team at Alex Park
    It was a cracking night for the team at Alexandra Park last night with the three winners for just six starters. Resonate gained an overdue win in the intermediate ranks, while Pretty Majestic continued a great run since crossing the Tasman. Passion And Power was much too good for the two year olds in the last despite having to overcome an outside barrier.

  • Addington review
    It was just one of those nights where we got close, but no cigar! The highlight of the night was no doubt Pres Da Belle in running second in the Group Three Summer Trotting Free-For-All after putting in a huge run.

  • Stars Tonight looks to continue wonderful run of form
    It has been a fantastic season to date for Bettor's Delight 4yo Stars Tonight, with four wins and five placings from just 11 starts, taking his seasonal stake-earnings to just under $50,000. The winner of both the Westport Cup and Marlborough Cup in two of his last five starts, he will look to add to that tally with victory in this afternoon's $20,000 Amberley Cup.

  • Heisenberg attempts cups treble at Invercargill
    What has already been a stellar season for Heisenberg, can take another step forward as he seeks victory in today's Invercargill Cup. Having ground out tough wins in the Ashburton and Central Otago Cups at his last two starts, he looks one of the main chances today in what appears a very even field.

  • Heisenberg win more than a record
    The win by Heisenberg in yesterdays re-run of the Central Otago Cup has led to a very generous donation by the horse’s connections, owners Ross and Angela Gordon, trainer Robert Dunn and the horse’s regular driver John Dunn.

  • Nelson Review
    It has been a nice two days up in Nelson and while there was no winning joy today, the weekend has been a success. The winning run of Soundslikeart on Friday backed up by a nice third today probably marked her as our star performer of the weekend.

  • Bill and Ben a likely combination to follow at Omakau
    A driver with hot hands over the holiday period has been Woodend junior Ben Hope. To add further weight to this, when he puts on the Robert Dunn colours he seems to be almost unbeatable. Tomorrow at Omakau, Ben combines with Kensington Bill, himself an impressive winner in his sole start as a pacer. The pair will be at cramped odds in the race for the junior drivers.

  • Classie Brigade looking to produce his best two mile form in Cup
    An unlucky third in the New Zealand Cup last month, Classie Brigade will be looking to replicate that form when he takes on a very strong All Stars contingent at Alexandra Park this evening. After little luck in his inter-dominion campaign, he will be looking to use his best manners early on to take a forward spot and for the cup to be a true run staying test.

  • Soundslikeart too good for Ben Hope
    Soundslikeart looked a certainty beaten in her most recent start at Motukarara, but today in the hands of Woodend junior Ben Hope, was too good in junior drivers company, also on that track. The win was her first since coming to New Zealand and the third of her 22 start career.

  • Stars Tonight looking for Westport double
    Consistent throughout this season, Stars Tonight travelled to Westport for yesterday's cup, walking away with the major spoils. Tomorrow he will return to Patterson Park, looking to complete a hat-trick of wins.

  • Heisenberg rewarded for consistency with cup win
    Heisenberg has raced consistency in all starts this campaign, but since his Kaikoura win has kept finding one better. However, today at Ashburton and over the 3200m trip, he stepped well early to secure a sweet trail behind Nandolo and then proved too strong once he got his run in the home straight.

  • Pres Da Belle relishes dropback in company
    Pres Da Belle had proved competitive against the very best trotters throughout the Inter-Dominion series, narrowly missing a place in the final. Back at Addington today and against appreciably easier company, she proved much too good after leading throughout.

    Never one to shirk hard work, John will have a particularly busy day tomorrow with 12 drives. He has six drives at the Addington day meeting, before flying to Auckland for another book of six drives at Alexandra Park. Eight of John's drives are on runners trained by dad Robert.
