"It was one of those days where everything just fell into place."
That was the reaction of Moonbi trainer and reinsman Dean Chapple after taking out the first four races at Tamworth on Thursday afternoon.
"I'm over the moon," he said. "I have driven four winners on a program before but it is the first time that I have trained four winners at a meeting - and we own two of them."
Chapple commenced his "four-leaf-clover run" in the opening event when Peggy Stardust had an all-the-way win from the three barrier.
"The family brought her and her work has been terrific," said Chapple of the Gold Dust Beach-The Ultimate Peg mare, who was purchased out of Queensland.
"I brought her because she had brilliant gate speed ... She just pinged across to the lead really easy [on Thursday].
In only her third start for the stables, Peggy Stardust had a 11.3-metre win over Thebigbadwolf (Blake Hughes) in the Tab Odds & Evens Pace (1609 metre). She paid $8.50.
She's Heavenly then stepped out in the following event - the TAB Long May We Play Pace - to have a 3.6m win over Groovy Shannon (Anthony Varga).
"That win was a bit of a shock," Chapple said. "We brought her out of Melbourne and the owners have been very patient with her. I have noticed in her last few runs that she has been improving."
She's Heavenly, who last won at Tamworth in November 2019, paid $23.
Chapple's third triumph was behind I'm Quite American in the Hygain Release Pace. "That win was a deadset shock," he said, smiling.
I'm Quite American had a 1.2m win over race favourite A Lot Of Cost (Jake Hughes) and paid $7.50.
Louthpark Xresso was the only one of Chapple's winners to commence as the favourite - $2.90 - and had a 1.6m victory over Water Master (Tom Ison).
"He is a nice horse and, in his wins, he has run some good times, which is exciting," Chapple said.
