Leading Wagga trainer Trevor Sutherland believes Two Wrongs Don't could be the best horse he has trained.
Sutherland's comments came after Two Wrongs Don't ($4.20) scored a dominant victory in the Eliza Thompson Cup Class Two Handicap (1600m) at Albury on Saturday.
It was just his second start back from a spell and was his third win from 19 starts.
Blaike McDougall eased Two Wrongs Don't to the outside at the top of the straight and he let down impressively to win by 2 lengths.
"He's a good horse, a very good horse," Sutherland said.
"He's probably the best horse I've trained I think.
"We babied him for a little while and he's taken time to mature.
"I thought he'd do what he did to them (on Saturday), it was a really good field and Blaike said he felt like he had a bit left."
The 1400 metres of the looming Country Championships will be too short for Two Wrongs Dont but Sutherland has a couple of other big races in mind.
"We'll probably miss the Championships at this stage, he wants a little bit longer I think," he said.
"The Albury Cup has always been his main aim. I think he is a real Albury and Wagga Cups horse.
"He's a very exciting horse."
Two Wrongs Dont was bred and is raced by Graeme Mathieson. Sutherland has picked out a couple of Highway Handicaps for the four-year-old and is likely to head to one of those in the next month.
He also plans to start Gentleman Max, My Maher and Bless You Toby at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.
Meantime, it was Mitchell Beer who took the honours at Albury on Saturday.
Beer training a winning double with Jawwaal ($2.00) and Sky Call ($8.50) both saluting. He also had Princess Cordelia run second.
Air Gordon ($6.00) made it back-to-back wins for Albury trainer Pat Widdup, while Another Jay Brown ($81.00) got up at a big price for Corowa trainer Rick Freyer.
