Catch up with Robert Dunn

Alert 3 means a return to work for many, and that includes the country’s top trainer Robert Dunn who was at the Franklin Park training centre at Pukekohe not long after dawn.

But the Auckland-based trainer says he won’t have any horses ready to go in the North when racing resumes and it will be July before they are seen back on track.

It’s a different story in the south when son John Dunn prepares the team out of his Woodend Stable.

Robert believes there’ll have 8-10 horses ready for the return to racing which is set for Addington on May 29.  ​

Ultimately, Robert Dunn says they will have between 60 and 70 horses between their Auckland and Canterbury operations and he is already eyeing up New Zealand Cup week in November.
