Driver Adam Richardson is hopeful a return home to Leeton will help partner Alanah Pitt realise her training dream.
Richardson and Pitt have spent the past few years in Brisbane working at the stable of leading trainer Ian Gurney, but are looking at establishing their own stable.
Pitt's desire to acquire a trainer's license has been delayed as officials continue to monitor the coronavirus outbreak and the potential impact it will have on the industry.
"Alanah's going to be a trainer. We'll get a few in work and have a nice little team hopefully," Richardson said.
"At the moment we've got eight (horses) but she hasn't got her trainer's license yet. We're waiting for them to do a stable inspection but with everything going on it's made it hard, so they're all in the name of her dad (Darryl) at the moment.
"We were working together at a stable in Brisbane and she's very good at looking after horses, so we decided to come back home and give it a go.
"Hopefully I can get a few drives from the outside, and if I'm not driving ours she can. It's probably easier to get established here than it would have been up there in Queensland."
Richardson has six drives on Leeton's eight-race card on Tuesday night.
He is confident his two drives for Kim Hillier - The Jay Doug ($3.50) in the TAB Odds and Evens Pace (2147m) and King Fisher ($5.50) in the Gogelderie Rural Firefighters Pace (2147m) - will both be thereabouts at the finish.
"The King Fisher sat behind the leader the other day and just got beat, but both of Hillier's have been going nice," he said.
Richardson was hopeful a couple of Pitt's would also press for wins.
"I'm not too sure where ours are at and we will know a lot more after tomorrow night," he said.
"Nevaevabend ($11 in the Whitton Rural Firefighters Pace) is drawn good (gate three) and she did trial well at Coolamon. If we can get across to the front and stack them up we'll be thereabouts.
"Cee Cee Norman in the last ($4 in the Leeton Fire Brigade Pace) will be a good show if she behaves herself. She can get erratic and pull too much, but if she doesn't do that she'll be hard to beat."
Meanwhile, Riverina driver Cameron Hart steered favourite Perfect Stride ($1.50) to an easy win in Monday's Gold Chalice heat at Bathurst to secure a spot in Saturday's $100,000 Group One final for three-year-old colts and geldings.
On Friday night Rocknroll Runa won through to Saturday's two-year-old feature with a strong front running victory in the Gold Crown heats.
