As far as Mother's Day presents go, the one Jeanette Trewern and Hollie Webster received from their husbands two years ago will always be memorable.
It was unexpected, to say the least.
It all started when Darron Trewern and Tim Webster wanted to buy a share in a racehorse.
But when Hollie said she didn't want Tim buying a share of Mystic Splendour, the men concocted a plan.
Jeanette explained "My husband (Darron) said to her husband (Tim), 'how about we give it to them as a present for Mother's Day. You can give Hollie a five per cent share and I'll give Jeanette a five per cent share, and Hollie can't say no.'"
And it definitely caught them both by surprise.
"I think I was, sort of, a bit shocked. That's not a great present, I don't want that," Hollie recalled.
But now Jeanette and Hollie are reaping the rewards.
From 19 starts, Mystic Splendour, who is trained by Mark Mason, has three wins along with seven placings.
The five-year-old has claimed $70,990 in prizemoney.
Jeanette said the horse was "the Mother's Day present that keeps giving - whether it's a bill for the training fee or the prizemoney".
She added: "It's a good syndicate, we've had a bit of fun."
Hollie said she previously "wasn't into racing at all" but a share in Mystic Splendour had upped her interest levels.
"You get excited to watch it race," she said.
Two of Mystic Splendour's three career wins have come in the mare's last two starts.
Mason will now take the mare to Rosehill on Saturday to compete in a Highway Handicap.
"She hasn't done much wrong and won her last two starts," Mason said.
"If she wins another race, she's not eligible for a Highway and she deserves a crack at one."
It will be the first time Mason has taken a horse to Sydney in some time.
The last horse he can remember taking to town was Hot Hit who raced there on a number of occasions.
It's a trip Mason's always up for.
"I don't mind going to Sydney. It's good to have one that's good enough to go," Mason said.
The owners and trainer are hoping rain hits the track on Saturday.
From two starts on heavy tracks, Mystic Splendour has claimed a win - which came last start at Tamworth - and a second.
As of Thursday afternoon the track was rated soft 6 and Mason gave his mare a chance.
"I think if the track has a bit of give and she gets a bit of luck from the alley [she'll have a chance]," Mason said.
"There's probably a couple there better than her but it depends who has luck in running."
Mason will be joined by a couple other Tamworth trainers in the Highway Handicap with Cody Morgan (Blazing Tycoon and Ronan's Rock) and Jane Clement (Hardyo) both entering runners into the race.
