Kentuckiana Lodge


West Melton harness racing trainer Cran Dalgety and driver Dexter Dunn added to their growing list of Melton (Victorian) successes by taking out the Group Two $A50,505 Tatlow 2YO Fillies Pace with Katy Perry on Saturday, July 19 (updated photos in story below).

On the domestic front, Cran is just over $10,000 shy of cracking the $1 million in winning NZ stakes for the fifth consecutive season, after late 3YO improver Major Bubbles delivered at short odds at Addington on Friday, July 18, his 85th NZ win for the season.

Cran, third on this season’s trainers premiership, has seasonal earnings of $989,836.

The Kentuckiana Lodge mentor notched his first NZ trainers premiership with a career best 115 wins from 511 starters for $1,206,705 in for the 2012-13 season. He finished second in the 2011-12 premiership with 113 wins for $1,487,086 in stakes.

Cran was also the runnerup on the 2010-11 NZ trainers premiership, with 85 wins for $1,032,002 in winnings.
