The dog best priced to win at Gunnedah on Wednesday didn't claim victory but his trainer still left the track with a huge smile on his face.
Jamie Bush - who trains in partnership with dad Kim - walked away with three wins as Five Mile Gem, Dance and Disco Chook all got up.
"I'm stoked," Bush said.
"We had a treble the meeting before as well.
"Now that everyone has to stick to their own district [due to coronavirus measures] it's a massive advantage for my dogs. This is their home track."
Bush's only other runner, the well-fancied Come On George, missed out on the placings.
It was later revealed the five-year-old fractured his hock.
Despite Come On George getting on in age, Bush was confident the dog would return after a couple months on the sidelines.
"I've had a couple that have raced to three or four and you have to be lucky if they get to five," Bush said.
"He's just a one of a kind. I've never had a dog race as long as him."
Come On George hasn't just been blessed with longevity either.
The five-year-old is quick on consistent no his way to 50 wins from 90 starts.
While Come On George has a half century of wins under his belt, on the other side of the scale is Bont's Charlie.
The three-year-old saluted at $34 in the first race to claim her first win for Gunnedah's Graham Wilkinson.
And the firsts didn't stop there.
"It was Graham Wilkinson's first start as a trainer and the first win he's ever had," Gunnedah Greyhound Racing Club president Geoff Rose said.
The racing is set to continue with Gunnedah hosting weekly meetings on Wednesday throughout May.
"The nominations have been good and now we're racing weekly, some of those dogs that missed out get a chance to come back," Rose said.
Those dogs making the trip back will all be from the local zone.
"The one good thing is about of this, is it's [prizemoney] all staying local," he said.
"Three or four winning trainers were from Tamworth and three were from Gunnedah won. The money's staying in the area."
Rose said it was also pleasing to see trainers abide to the rules set in place, too.
"I'm very pleased with the way owner-trainers have handled the virus and the biosecurity rules [put in place]," Rose said.
"The owner-trainers are doing a really good job at sticking to the rules."
