Harness racing Kiwi duo too classy.

New Zealand born, and now American based trainer Chris Ryder teamed up with fellow kiwi reins men Dexter Dunn to win the $400,000 Carl Milstein Memorial, with top three-year-old pacer Bettors Wish.

Dunn simply outdrove the rest of the field. The pair found the front end from the three post early and ran a first half in a pedestrian 57 seconds, something unheard of in the open pacing ranks. From there Dunn knew, “If he got beat from there it would have to have been an off night”, so control was taken from that point as they blistered the last half in 53.3 to complete the mile in 1:50.3 on the half-mile track and win by 3 ½ lengths. With that victory, the 3yo son of Bettors Delight took his earnings to $1,096,600, joining the million dollar club and it was his 11th win of his career.

It was also trainer Chris Ryder's 40th win of the season and notched his stake earnings to over the $1.7 million mark.

Dunn continues to make a huge impact in the North American scene. Dexter has won 261 races this season and over $5.9 million in prize money to date.

Top Down Under trotter Speeding Spur N bagged his first North American win impressively today Sunday the 11th of August. The 8yo son of Pegasus Spur was seen flying home to win the $148,000 Crawford Farms Open Trot at Tioga Downs, in a track record time for trotters of 1:52.4. The successful driver, Brian Sears commented after the victory, “He’s a classy horse, he knows what it’s all about” as he was extremely impressed with the Woodlands Stud owned trotter.

Now trained by Linda Toscano, he promises plenty more to come in his North American career as he looks to expand his top quality reputation for a future breeding career.

Previously prepared in New Zealand by John and Joshua Dickie, Speeding Spur was the winner of over $1.1 million including nine Group 1 victories across New Zealand and Australia.
