Miller, who finished third in the recent World Championships, was sixth on the $92.60 chance Ona Happy Note in the first heat while his drive Extreme Prince at $98.30 suffered an atrial fibrillation in the second heat.
Both MacDonald and Miller were active participants at the traditional Inter Dominion Calcutta held on Sunday as part of the Barrier Draw function for the 2017 Inter Dominion.
MacDonald paid $1,800 to purchase pole marker Tiger Tara as his runner while Miller teamed with his father Erv to outlay $2,550 for second favorite Chicago Bull.
Miller's sister Hannah is also in Perth and she will be one of 10 women drivers taking part in a special Lady Drivers Challenge Race which will feature the world's leading female driver Kerryn Manning, who has driven more than 3,700 winners and beaten the men, to win five Australian Drivers Premierships.
The special race is being sponsored by Retravision and with the support of Racing and Wagering Western Australia it will be the 11th race on an amazing card of harness racing featuring four Group One events including the $1.1 million TABtouch Inter Dominion final.
The 10 competing drivers have won some 5375 races between them.
Hannah Miller was the USA's National Amateur Driver Award winner in 2015 and 2016 and represented the USA in the World Amateur Driving titles in Hungary in 2016 where she finished runner-up. (Alan Parker for USTA)
