New Zealand’s very own ten time driving premiership winner Dexter Dunn continues to go above and beyond the public's expectations of his North American harness racing sojourn.

Since heading to the northern hemisphere to expand his career just over 12 months ago, Dunn has gone ahead in leaps and bounds by picking up some quality stock to drive.

Highlighted by the Chris Ryder trainer Bettors Wish, Dunn has also picked up the drive on top trotting filly Millie’s Possession. Currently he has driven 278 winners, and won over $6.4 Million dollars in stake money this season in North America.

Bit Of A Legend wins 50th careers race.

Gallant Down Under pacer Bit Of A Legend, won his 50th career race at Yonkers on Saturday .

The 10yo Stallion paced the mile in 1:52.4 around the half mile (800m) track and extended his career earnings to over $2.5 million.

Bit Of A Legend is trained by Peter Tritton and has been driven by Jordan Stratton in North America.

Formerly trained by Cran Dalgety in New Zealand, he was the winner of 20 races and over $800,000 in New Zealand and Australia, including the Australian Breeders Crown twice at ages 2 and 3, and the New Zealand Yearling Sales 2yo Open Final.

A stallion by Bettors Delight, Bit Of A Legend is building a very strong CV for a future in Breeding.
