Down Under harness racing trainers and drivers light up the Breeders Crown Finals weekend in Canada.

Down Under drivers Andrew McCarthy and Dexter Dunn, alongside Down Under trainers Brett Pelling, Tahnee Camilleri, Nifty Norman, and Chris Ryder excel in one of the biggest race meetings on the Harness Racing Calendar, Breeders Crown final day at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Andrew McCarthy had a weekend to remember as he won four of the finals recording two winners on the Friday night and two on the Saturday night.

Night ones successes came in the way of Romona Hill in the $790,000 2yo Trotting Fillies Final in a time of 1:53.2, and Reflect With Me in the $790,000 2yo Pacing Fillies Final in a time of 1:50.3. He followed up by winning the $395,000 Open Pacing Mares Final with the Brett Pelling trained Caviart Ally in a slick time of 1:49.3 beating champion New Zealand mare Shartin in the process.  “The Breeders Crown, it’s the ultimate for us in the game and I couldn’t be happier.” said New Zealand born trainer Brett Pelling following the win.

McCarthy then teamed up with fellow Australian Tahnee Camilleri to take out the $790,000 3yo Pacing Colts and Geldings Final with Dancing Lou by Sweet Lou, in a time of 1:50.2. “I’m the luckiest girl in the world”, said Trainer Tahnee Camilleri after the thrilling win. A huge final run up the straight saw Dancing Lou nose out the Chris Ryder trained and Dexter Dunn driven Bettors Wish. Bettors Wish being very gallant in defeat now looks to hold a future in the breeding sector after taking Down Under duo Ryder and Dunn on a hugely successful 3yo racing season.

Dexter Dunn also had a weekend to remember winning two Breeders Crown Finals. A remarkable effort for a driver in his first year driving in North America and Canada. Dunn teamed up alongside fellow New Zealander Nifty Norman to win the $790,000 2yo Trotting Colts and Geldings Final with impressive gelding Amigo Volo. The son of Father Patrick trotted the mile in 1:54.3.

He also steered home the outstanding Manchego in the $427,000 Open Trotting Mares Final. The daughter of Muscle Hill was ultra-impressive again winning in a time of 1:51.0, beating her rivals by over one second. Manchego has proven herself as one of the best trotters in the world at present as some big plans are in store for the 4yo mare for her future racing career.
