New Year's Eve at Albury Paceway couldn't have gone any smoother for Damian Wilson.
The Byrneside driver-trainer capped off the perfect night at the Border club's most popular meeting by claiming victory in all five races he started - including the feature New Year's Eve Cup with the Darryl Hill-trained Our Summer Bay.
Wilson opened his account in the first on card with Feeling The Love, a new addition to his stable, winning by 1.3 metres from Love At First Bite and Miss Rixon.
He didn't have to wait long for his second win, piloting Hayjoshandco to victory for David Farrar by a half head to Raymond Turner's Impertinent Boy.
His night got even better when Our Summer Bay won the New Year's Eve Cup from David Druitt's Saucy Dreams and pre-race favourite Yourockanna, trained by Albury's Hellen Scott.
And it finished in style when Nationaldraft stormed home to win by a head from Zoe's Regal in race six.
Wilson was thrilled with the performances of his pacers, particularly Feeling The Love in the first.
"She was probably the strongest horse (of the race) tonight," Wilson said.
"She did the work from the 1000 (metres) and I always felt she was going to get the leader. She did a good job.
"She's a trier, she wasn't going to throw the towel in."
Wilson is unsure what the future holds for the six-year-old mare.
"It's one day at a time with her," he said.
"We'll push through and see where we go in 10 days time I suppose.
"I've only had a couple of starts with her. She went a little bit better today than last week and hopefully she improves again."
