WAGGA trainer Brad Witt hopes to cap off the best week of his life with a winner at Murrumbidgee Turf Club on Saturday.
Witt and his partner Rebekah became parents for the first time on Tuesday when they welcomed a baby daughter Amelia.
She arrived after Witt trained winners at Young on Saturday and Leeton on Monday.
Even a horse he owns a share in, Glitter Face, saluted at Ipswich on Wednesday.
Witt said no winners compare to the experience of welcoming a child into the world for the first time.
"It's brilliant," Witt said.
"It's a different kind of excitement but the best excitement I've ever experienced.
"Both mother and bub are doing well.
"I'm just lucky she's got her mother's looks, not mine."
Witt will saddle up three horses on their home track on Saturday.
Gunner, a first-up winner, will contest the Riverina Hotel League Of Their Own Mile (1600m).
He was set to contest the Cootamundra Cup on October 5 before the meeting was abandoned.
The 10-year-old rises to the mile with a 46 days between runs but Witt is not concerned.
"Old Gunner is drawn good and is at the top of his game," he said.
"I was keen on him in the Coota Cup and he's still going good.
"He's rock hard fit and he's a healthy happy horse, everything's good with him.
"I like to space his runs anyway."
Jason Collins takes the ride on Gunner from barrier two.
Collins also takes the ride on Pointing To Gold in the PRD Nationwide Benchmark 55 Handicap (1300m).
The six-year-old mare that has been close to the mark in both starts this preparation.
"I think it's a nice race for her," Witt said.
"She didn't have much luck last start and should go close again."
Witt's third runner is Tothecoastandback, ridden by Andy Bloomfield, and he will take on a competitive field in the Lake Village Foodworks Class One Handicap (1200m).
"It's a good race but he's a nice little horse," he said.
"He's still got improvement in him."
