Nifty Norman and Dexter Dunn got home the quality harness racing square gaiter in Amigo Volo on Sunday at Pocono. The win was in the $95,367 second division of the Pennsylvania Sires Stakes for 3yo Colts and Geldings. The 3yo son of Father Patrick clocked a winning time of 1:52 winning easily. This win adds to the large success this down under duo have had with this horse. Together Norman, Dunn and Amigo Volo previously won the $790,000 2yo Trotting Colts and Geldings Breeders Crown Final at Woodbine Mohawk Park in Canada. Also they won the $181,000 Matron Stakes at Dover Downs in Delaware. On the same day Dexter Dunn was also a part of a new World Record that was set on Sunday at Plainridge Park. Dunn steered home the freakish trotting mare of Manchego to win the $250,000 Spirit of Massachusetts Free for all Trot. Trained by Nancy Takter. The pair clocked a winning time of 1:49.3 around the five-eighths Mile track, which is 1000m. Setting a new world record for aged trotting mares for the distance of the track. This extremely impressive new world record time allowed Manchego to beat her own record which she set in 2019 of 1:50.1. Dunn sent the daughter of Muscle Hill to the lead off the gait, reaching the quarter (400m) in 25.2 and then the half (800m) in a blistering 53.3 seconds. From there they never looked back, extending in the stretch and not allowing competitive rival Atlanta get close who sat on her back throughout. Manchego, Dunn and Takter hold the record for the fastest trotting mare of all time when they won in a time of 1:49 in 2019. On the same card at Plainridge Park, champion Down Under Mare Shartin N returned to winning form. Shartin N (Tintin In America) won comfortably in the $100,000 Clara Barton Distaff Fillies and Mares Free For All Pace. Driven by Tim Tetrick, the mare clocked a winning time of 1:48.1, making it a new Track Record at Plainridge Park. Coming in second place was another Down Under Mare in Soho Burning Love A (Auckland Reactor) , who was driven by Jordan Stratton.

Down Under harness racing horses score a first four home in race 13 at The Meadowlands. Saturday night harness racing saw the huge impact of what Down Under racehorses are having on North American tracks in 2020. Saturday nights racing at the Meadowlands saw five races won by former Down Under horses. The highlight being in race 13 which was taken out by The Devils Own N in 1:49. In behind him was Franco Totem N in second, Jacks Shadow N third and Saying Grace N coming in fourth making it a Down Under First four. But that wasn’t the only Down Under factor in the race. The trainers of the first and second finished runners are the New Zealand born, Kelvin Harrison (Big Red) and Nifty Norman. Plus Dexter Dunn driving Franco Totem N showing that Down Under harness racing people are also the real deal. The Devils Own N is continuing on his successful race career (three wins and a second from just the four starts) that was formerly in New Zealand where he was the winner of four races, nine seconds and six thirds for over $240,000 in stake earnings. A highlight was when he set a New Zealand record as a 2yo, running 2.16.3 (1:52.4 Mile rate) over 1950m at Addington Raceway.  The Devils Own N Down Under mare smashes the clock. Soho Burning Love A turned heads on Friday night at The Meadowlands with her blistering mile win. The 6yo daughter of Auckland Reactor paced a winning mile in 1:48.4. This made her the fastest ever mare bred in Australia. Tim Tetrick bought the mare up to the parked position approaching three quarters and then put pay to Apple Bottom Jeans (30 wins & $968,000) to run away with the victory. Jim King Jr trains the mare and this continues the huge success with Down Under mares. He is the trainer of the fastest mare in history Shartin N, and Bettor Joy N just to name a couple. Before heading to North America, Soho Burning Love A had a successful racing career in Australia, winning 13 races for over $250,000 in stake earnings. Most importantly winning at Group 3 level, and placing at Group level on 5 occasions, three in Group 1 races.

He then went on to win two Breeders Crowns Finals in Australia at aged two and three and placing second in the final as a 4yo. Also running 2nd in both the New Zealand Derby and Harness Jewels. Then departing the Cran Dalgety stable to head to Peter Trittons barn in North America, Bit Of A Legend went ahead in leaps and bounds. Early on in his North American racing career he cleaned swept the Levi Series, winning all five preliminary heats, one being in a track record and then went on to win the $609,000 Final. He ran a lifetime best of 1:49.4 in the $200,000 Battle of Lake Erie on the half-mile track at Northfield Park.

He never let me down.” – Cran Dalgety, New Zealand Trainer. “He’s my favourite horse. No question. Everyone was excited for him. There were people, wherever we went, who said he was their favourite horse.” – Jordan Stratton, North American Driver. “I’ve had good horses before, but he’s different. To have the longevity he’s had and to produce in the big races the way he did, that’s what stands out.” – Peter Tritton, North American Trainer. A special bit from myself. "I was lucky enough to be associated and spend time with this horse in New Zealand. His small and solid stature and unbelievable will to win, along with his classy personality made him a one in a million horse. In New Zealand his stable name was Carter which made him that little bit more special.

Down Under harness racing representatives have yet another huge stakes night at The Meadowlands. Trainer Brett Pelling led the charge on Saturday night training a winning double. His first win came in the $401,850 Governors Cup Final for 2yo Colts and Geldings, where Papi Rob Hanover (Somebeachsomewhere - Panera - Rocknroll Hanover) was successful with David Miller in the bike. Papi Rod Hanover shot away from rivals to score in 1:51.1. This two-year-old's record is now six wins from 12 starts for $756,783 in earnings. His second win came from top mare Caviart Ally ((Bettor's Delight - Allamerican Cool - No Nukes) in the $175,000 TVG Mares final, with Down Under reinsmen Andrew McCarthy doing the steering. Caviart Ally for Pelling and McCarthy nosed out the fabulous Down Under mare Shartin N in a thrilling finish to take home the prize in a scorching time of 1:48.3. Caviart Ally's record is now 25 wins for $1,828,016. Papi Rob Hanover Caviart Ally Andrew McCarthy was also successful with a double on the night but in the drivers seat. His first win was with the Andrew Harris trainee Rock Lights (Rock N Roll Heaven - Nuclear Light - No Nukes) in 1:50.1, followed up later on with the stunning Caviart Ally. Rock Lights Down Under trainer Nifty Norman and driver Dexter Dunn also teamed up and grabbed a victory with the New Zealand bred and Australian raced Franco Totem N (Changeover - Treaty Franco - Badlands Hanover). The trio scored in a $22,500 pace where Franco Totem was a bold winner in 1:50. Franco Totem N was formerly raced in Australia by the Graham Family. He recorded 17 wins and over $120,000 in stake earnings while racing Down Under. In the US he has only had 7seven starts for three wins, two seconds and a third for $38,600 in earnings since his arrival in August this year. Franco Totem N Down Under trainer Chris Ryders top 3yo colt Bettors Wish (Bettor's Delight - Lifetime Star - Western Ideal) ran a huge race in the $350,000 TVG Open Pacing Final where he came in second place. A remarkable effort for the only 3yo in the race up against the top Open Pacers in the country. With Dexter Dunn in the bike, the pair flew home from far back to record a time of 1:49.2. Bettors Wish Dunn was again very narrowly beaten in the $350,000 TVG Open Trotting Final with exceptional trotting mare Manchego (Muscle Hill - Secret Magic - Cantab Hall) . Working overtime early in a 26.3 opening quarter, the pair found themselves on top just prior to the half. That being clocked in a lightning 53.4 trotting, giving a huge sight up the final stretch but just being nipped on the post by classy European trotter Six Pack (Muscle Mass - Pleasing Lady - Cantab Hall) who now retires to stud. Manchego and Dunn can be extremely proud of their second placing in 1:50, a super effort from a mare racing against the Open Male Trotters.

Harness racing Down Under "Breeders Crown winners" this week take out the Matron Stakes. New Zealand born trainer/driver duo, Nifty Norman and Dexter Dunn were once again successful this time in the $181,000 Matron Stakes on Thursday at Dover Downs. They teamed up with Amigo Volo a 2yo trotting gelding by Father Patrick gapping rivals to win in a time of 1:52.4. Coming in a huge 1.6 seconds in front of the second place getter.  Just two weeks ago the same trio won the $790,000 2yo Trotting Colts and Geldings Final in Canada. Amigo Hall has had 11 starts for 6 wins and 2 seconds for earnings of $700,000 lifetime to date. A recent arrival in North America that is making news is Lifeonthebeach A at Saratoga. A Somebeachsomewhere 5yo gelding that raced in Australia, Lifeonthebeach had 34 starts for 7 wins 11 seconds and 3 thirds for $76,410. His last 10 starts at Albion Park resulted in no wins.  Lifeonthebeach bled in Australia twice and as a result was barred from racing for life from its last start on the 22nd of June 2019. What a waste of of very good horse! Sold to North America for next to nothing Lifeonthebeach has had 10 starts for 7 wins and 1 second for $35,000 in earnings to date and has taken a record of 1:53 on a half-mile track. Why Lasix cannot be used Down Under to help a horse really does not make sense to me.

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. Andrew McCarthy 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.
