After sitting back in the field and giving punters who took the $1.20 shorts a few nervous moments, John Dunn cut Crackaheiny loose on the home bend and powered on by to win easily by ¾’s of a lenghts over Montenegro and K C Pedro in the third race at Timaru.

It was the lightly tried pacer’s fourth win at his 10th lifetime start and his second win from just three starts this time in, the other resulted in a second.

“He is aptly named as he really did ‘Crackaheiny’,” laughed Dunn, when referring to the son of Elsu cracking his hind pastern last season.

“He does seem a stronger horse this time in, so that time out may have been his best friend,” he added.

Crackaheiny, who is a great grandson of influential mare Maureens Dream, is trained by John’s father, Robert.

“I think he can win a fair few more races yet, “advised Dunn. “He is a nice type with a lot high speed,” he added.

The win caps off what has been a good few days for Crackaheiny’s sire, Elsu, who has also had success over the weekend with Mont Vernoux, Jacuzzisuzzi, Smokin Bopper, Eltsunami, and Chilli Palmer, who was an emphatic winner of yesterday’s $125,000 Mcinerny Ford 4YO Classic at Gloucester Park.
