Dunedin Notches Maiden Win At Start Three
Three year old gelding Dunedin relished the wet track at Kembla Grange on Saturday when breaking his maiden over 1400m. A change of tactics and removal of the blinkers by trainer John O'Shea proved the winning move for the son of Dundeel who was able to pull away for a half a length victory, defeating the Jarrod Austin trained Summons who loomed as a threat at the 200m mark. 

Dunedin was having his third career start and was coming off a below par performance at Newcastle when ridden on speed. Ridden behind the leaders on Saturday, Dunedin attacked the line- a performance that his trainer John O'Shea was confident he could achieve. 

"It was easy in the end, he began cleanly and he put himself into a nice spot and travelled well" commented jockey Andrew Adkins after the win. "The other horse was there to beat us up the straight so it was good to see him show that fight and win."

Dunedin was purchased for $60,000 from the 2022 Magic Millions yearling sale from the Kitchwin Hills Draft.
