Trainer profile: Alexandra Dunn Racing


Alex Dunn has been based in West Buckland, Wellington for two seasons since moving from Worcestershire. The yard has been extensively developed during that time period. Ten stables have been built, making sixteen in total in the American Barn.

There has also been a brand new surface put down by the Dunn’s on the all-weather.

Alex Dunn now holds a full trainers license, however keen not to forget her pointing roots she still will train her family’s point to pointers. DOUBLE MEAD has been a fantastic mare, who is now the winner of eighteen races, including five hunter chases.


LION ON THE PROWL, son of Saddler’s Wells is another Ladies open winner, is also under Alex’s care


Holnicote winner ALROYAL will be ridden by John Smith-Maxwell for another season. PERICOLOSO, ALL FOR CASH and KEELE ROAD will also be aimed at Point to Points, but at the time of going to print it is unsure whether they will be trained in Somerset or by Alex’s Mum, Katherine Smith-Maxwell.

PICAROON, will be back for another season and will have a Worcestershire Hunt Certificate, but will be aimed at Hunter Chases along with recent winner SPOCK, who won a class three chase this Summer at Worcester for Alex.
