STAR reinsman Dexter Dunn has stretched his national record thanks to his victory at Forbury last night.
Capturing the opening event with Lord Roydon, Dunn registered his 200th win for the season – his seventh consecutive double century.
In 2012 and 2013 Dunn finished the New Zealand season on 199 wins, but managed to capture several races in Australia.
Dunn is the only Kiwi to break past 200 wins in a term, which he first achieved in 2009 with 204 wins.
With an unassailable lead in the battle for the premiership, Dunn is also assured his 10th consecutive title.
Legendary horseman Maurice Holmes holds the record for the most premierships, having secured 18 between 1931 and 1974.
Finishing last night’s program with a treble, Dunn is in fine form as he prepares for his World Driving Championship title defence in August.
Capturing the crown in Australia, Dunn will aim for successive Championships in Canada.
