At the Wednesday February 4 TAB meeting at Bathurst the Rod McDonald prepared Dana Tiger equalled Rockstar Image’s 450m track record of 25.70.

In leading throughout Dana Tiger comfortably defeated 2007 Bathurst GOTY Flying Mitch by three and a half lengths with Moonlit Hideaway a half length back in third.

The son of Collision and Dana Betty has been racing in superb form of late and posted his fourth win from his past five starts.

It all started with a win at Wentworth Park on January 12 then he took out the heat and final of the GRNSW Country Challenge Orange Cup at Bathurst over the next ten days.

His only defeat came at the paws of talented litter-mate Dana Beatrice to whom he finished second at Richmond in a flying 30.59 on Friday January 30.

Dana Beatrice was also successful on Wednesday’s card posting a slick 30.09 which was easily the best of the day over the 520 metres giving McDonald a winning double.

The Cowra based mentor is enjoying a stellar run at present leading in winners at Dapto, Wentworth Park, Canberra, Bathurst, Temora and Young in recent weeks.

At Bathurst alone he has landed an impressive 11 winners and 13 seconds from 30 starters in the past eight weeks.
