A Brownlow, Norm Smith medal, and an AFL Premiership – there isn’t too much more Dustin Martin can achieve but that hasn’t stopped his namesake Tiger Dusty (pictured, photo credits Paul Munt) from breaking through for a win at The Meadows yesterday.
Trained and owned in Heidelberg Heights by Frederick Malloy and bred by Ray Bartolo (Avalon), Tiger Dusty broke a 10 start winning drought with his 525-metre come-from-behind victory in his 26th start, just four days after Richmond’s Grand Final win.
Tiger Dusty has been thereabouts in his last three starts, racking up three consecutive thirds before he surprised punters paying $6.20 for the strong win yesterday.
Tiger Dusty’s third career win sparked the attention of Dustin Martin’s close friend Dane Swan, who tweeted a photo of the win giving praise to the star midfielder.
