Dunn Set to Cash in on Great White Hope

Article excerpt


SO THE Sydney Roosters are crowing about signing Michael Jennings from Penrith.

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary was most adamant in an interview during the week that the club was glad to let the speedster go.

Cleary said Jennings was the highest-paid player at the club but his performances on the field didnat warrant the huge money he was getting out of the Panthers.

He sits in seventh place on the Brisbane metropolitan trainers table, with 14 winners and $400,050 in stakes winnings.

Throw in another 15 winners on the provincial and country circuits and Dunnas horses have amassed $533,650 in Queensland.

He has also been firing on his home track, where he has raced away with a commanding lead in the Tweed River Jockey Club trainers premiership.

When Congo bolted in at Murwillumbah last Monday, he took Dunnas win tally on course to seven.

That victory took Dunnas NSW stakes winning total to $73,400. …
