Shark Dancer provided a special moment for the Piltz family and is out to repeat the dose at Wagga on Friday.
The three-year-old became Leeton trainer Tony Piltz's first winner in 11 years when he won on debut last month.
With son Sebastian driving it was a special moment for the family.
"It was great and a big thrill to do it with him and being there with him when it won was brilliant," Piltz said.
Piltz only got back into the sport when Sebastian started showing an interest a couple of years ago.
He is hoping he doesn't have to wait as long for another winner this time around.
Especially after being so pleased with Shark Dancer's first performance.
"I was confident he could lead all the way if the young fella followed my directions and he did to the letter," Piltz said.
After a winning debut, it has been over three weeks since Shark Dancer last raced.
Piltz wanted to find a three-year-old race and make a few gear adjustments before returning to the track.
However he has drawn a difficult race at Riverina Paceway with the field including Realnspectacular, who resumes after finishing fifth in a group one Vicbred final last season.
The weather could be another factor after last week's meeting was abandoned after the mobile starting unit couldn't find any traction on the slippery surface.
Wagga chief executive Graeme White is hopeful preparations for this week's meeting can help alleviate the impact rain has.
"The track has been extensively prepared again with the forecast for rain which has meant a lot of rolling of the surface," White said.
"This was also done last week leading up to Friday's meeting, but the surface became extremely slippery after five millimetres of rain.
"The club have held discussions with Harness Racing NSW regarding the track surface when it rains and will await word from them."
