Big smiles were the order of the day for "Team Dunn" at Richmond Park this afternoon. The 3 wins of day one were well and truly blown away with 5 wins today - The Pacman, Lumos, Lauramegan, Donegal's Guest and Crackaheiny, while there were placings with Massimo (2nd) and Nikola (3rd).
This is the first time that the combination of Robert and John have achieved the 5 winners for the day. For John he was backing up the 5 wins achieved at Auckland on Premier Night 3 week ago and for Robert, this was the 3rd time he as a trainer has trained 5 winners on a programme.
After a quieter period through November, things have really taken off through December and now January. After today's meet, the stable sit a comfortable 2nd in the premiership with 43 wins, 13 behind the Purdon/Rasmussen partnership and 11 ahead of the 3rd placed Mark Jones.

"The are both in Auckland at the moment but one of them will head down for the Pelorus, while the other will tackle the four and five-year-old race at Cambridge," said Dunn.
