Ima Mystery Girl will be flying the flag for the Riverina hopefuls in the Wagga Pacers Cup on Sunday.
There are two locally trained horses in the group three feature, with Ima Mystery Girl joining Jodan in the field after returning to the care of West Wyalong trainer Billy Evans.
Evans trained the mare before she headed to Menangle to forge a successful career and would love to win one of the region's biggest races.
Especially being the first running of the race at Riverina Paceway.
"It would be a good race to win, especially as it is the first on the new track," Evans said.
Im Mystery Girl established herself as one of the best mares at Menangle but as her form tapered off after a 16th career win in early January Evans decided to bring her back to West Wyalong.
A crack at the cup will be one of her last race starts before heading to the broodmare barn.
"She just wasn't finishing in the top end of the prizemoney and her last run was a bit below par so we decided to bring her home and give her a bit of a freshen up," Evans said.
"But then I thought I'd bring her back up myself, saw the cup and decided to head towards back."
Evans is unsure if the mare will head back to former Temora trainer-driver Jarrod Alchin.
He'll wait to see how her form stacks up before making a decision.
"I'll see how she goes," Evans said.
"If she goes alright she will probably go back from one last stint and then we will breed from her this season."
He's also hoping she can break through the $200,000 mark in career prizemoney.
The six-year-old just over $3000 away from the figure.
"I would have nearly retired her when we brought her home, but we thought it would be good to hopefully tick over the $200,000 mark," Evans said.
Evans has given the mare two trials in preparation for the cup and was particularly pleased with her most recent effort.
The Turnbull family has a strong hand in the race.
Amanda Turnbull has drawn barrier two with the in-form Executive Dash, who had a string of four wins broken with a third last time out but hasn't missed the placings in his last 10 starts.
Her father Steve also lines up Courtsinsession, who has seven top two finishes in as many starts for the stable, as well as Inter Dominion performer Conviction.
There is plenty of outside interest with Inter Dominion winning trainer-driver James Rattray entering Rykov Leis, KerryAnn Turner is bringing the Wagga-owned Redbank Addi for the cup while Brallos Pass is back for another attempt following the Mildura Pacers Cup carnival.
