The freakish Down Under reins man Dexter Dunn headlined the harness racing card on Saturday at Woodbine Mohawk Park in Canada. With Dunn winning six races on the card, he simply amazed all harness racing followers. Five of his winners were Breeders Crown eliminations. The caliber of horses Dunn is sitting behind is astonishing and complements perfectly with his amazing ability of always giving the horse the best chance of reaching their maximum potential.

Dunn teamed up with former Down Under trainer Chris Ryder to win one of the 3yo Colts and Gelding Breeders Crown Elimination with classy colt Bettors Wish. “You can't help but love him, he's such a cool horse”, Dunn said of Bettors Wish following the win. The Down Under duo look to have a great chance in the Final coming up next Saturday.

Dexter Dunn’s other wins on the day were top trotter Millie’s Possession in the 3yo Fillies elimination, Darling Mearas S in the Open Trotting Mares elimination, exceptional trotting mare Manchego in the Open Mares elimination and Dancing Lou in the other 3yo Pacing Colts and Gelding elimination.

New Zealand Harness Jewels winner qualifies in North America.

Top Down Under pacer Jacks Legend qualified at Yonkers Raceway on Friday. The New Zealand bred gelding clocked a time of 1:56.1 in his qualifier around the half mile (800m) track. He is now trained by Richard Banca and was driven by Jason Bertlett. While racing in New Zealand, Jacks Legend was the winner of 10 races and over $450,000 in prize money, for Hall of Fame trainer Barry Purdon. He placed at Group level 12 times, with the highlights of his down under career being winning the 3yo Emerald Harness Jewels in a time of 1:51.8, and running 2nd in the New Zealand Cup to champion pacer Lazarus.
