Dynamic Win By Tearaway Hawkesbury Galloper

The family that works together wins together! Hawkesbury husband and wife training duo Mitchell and Desiree Kearney won their second race in three days when Dynamic Dynasty lived up to his name with a dynamic barrier to box performance at Scone on Monday.

And they quickly gave credit to family members, who play such an integral role in their training business.

“Without their help, Mitch and I would not be able to do what we are doing,” Desiree Kearney said on her return home last night. “My brother William is our main trackwork rider and Mitch’s brother Shane also does a great job working around the stables and cleaning out boxes.

"As well, my cousin Robbie Brewer comes in and helps with fast work. We have a great staff and we’re very appreciative of everyone’s support.”

Apprentice Rachel Hunt partnered Dynamic Dynasty at Scone, and has been going to Hawkesbury to ride him in some of his pacework.

“That was his fourth run for us, and Rachel has now ridden him in the last three,” Mrs Kearney said.

“After his good second (to the promising Bocelli) at Goulburn last time, we were quietly confident he would be hard to beat.”

Stablemate Hendo’s Magic, ridden a cleverly-judged race out in front by Robbie Brewer to break through at Newcastle last Saturday, was the first leg of the Kearney double.

But Dynamic Dynasty did even better, notching his first win in just over two years. Hunt had the four-year-old away smartly in the Benchmark 60 Handicap (1600m) and thereafter ran his rivals ragged.

The well-backed $3 joint favourite charged out with a sizeable lead in the middle stages and never looked like losing. He bolted home by more than four lengths from $6 chance Eagleworks – and there was some irony in the result.

The runner-up is prepared by Paul Perry, who trained Dynamic Dynasty earlier in his career when he showed a lot of promise.

The now four-year-old won his first two trials and, after a debut third to Prompt Response (last Saturday’s Group 1 Tatts Tiara winner at Doomben) at Newcastle in a 2YO Maiden Plate (1200m) in April 2016, reeled off three straight victories at Gunnedah, Muswellbrook and Taree.

He was spelled after finishing sixth to Foxplay in a 2YO Handicap (1350m) at Rosehill Gardens in June that year, and never recaptured winning form although he was placed on five occasions.

“Our main client Peter Knight purchased Dynamic Dynasty earlier this year for his partner Robyn Tatham,” Mrs Kearney explained. “We got him on the day Racing NSW approved our joint training partnership in February.”

The Kearneys won with their first starter as a partnership; $16 chance Final Trick scored at Bathurst on February 11 at the same Legends meeting where the mare two years earlier had also given Mitch his breakthrough success when training on his own. And they have no doubt Hawkesbury’s new Polytrack surface has played a major role in getting Dynamic Dynasty back into winning form.

“He was a bit jointy when he arrived, and being able to work on the synthetic track since it was opened earlier this month has improved him by several lengths,” Mrs Kearney said.

There’s another important factor in Dynamic Dancer’s rejuvenation: “He has had ongoing issues, but is gradually getting better thanks to a lot of tender loving care,” Mrs Kearney said of the Dreamscape gelding.

“He’s a real ladies’ man; he goes nuts over the girls. But he gets cranky when the men are around him.” The Kearneys have 14 horses in work at their Hawkesbury base, and are keen to expand their team.
