Cootamundra trainer Gregg Mills continued a winning run at Young's Alfred Oval last weekend that started in December last year when his two dogs Lilac Izmir and Willow Izmir scored.
Both dogs were engaged yesterday at Goulburn.
Victory by the two at Young stretched Mills' winning run to five with Lilac Izmir recording wins at her past three starts and Willow Izmir winnings its past two starts
Lilac Izmir registered a convincing seven-length winning margin over second-placed Tikki, boosting her record to four wins from seven starts.
She recorded a slick 20.04s at her third win in a row following a win at Goulburn and now two at Young to start to the year. The Trimech Electrical Final was the highlight of the six race meeting and was worth $570 to the winner.
The Mills trained Willow Izmir made it two wins from four starts taking out the Donges IGA Stakes over 347 metres by nine and three quarter lengths.
Both dogs are from the same litter, by El Grand Senor out of Daisy Izmir.
Another litter mate, Quill Izmir recorded win number four from five starts at Lismore on Tuesday.
Trained by Ken Staines, Quill Izmir's only defeat to date came at Grafton on February 10 having recorded a debut win at the same track on February 3.
Prior to Tuesday's win the black dog scored back to back wins at Lismore and Casino.
Greg Mills explained that Staines has been training for the Mills family for more than 40 years with the best of their dogs usually ending up in the Staines kennels.
Mills has been training for more than 30 years taking over the dogs which don't measure up. Willow Izmir and Lilac Izmir were originally sent to Staines.
"They had gone to Ken as they broke in well but weren't progressing as well as they should," Mills said.
They returned home and are the only two dogs Mills currently has in work.
"Some of us still have to work for a living," Mills joked.
"We're having a good run at the moment," he said.
Other good runs he recalled occurred when Raven Izmir was at the height of her form winning 22 from 42 and when Glorious Izmir was in similar form winning 21 from 39.
Raven Izmir recently had a litter of 12 pups.
"It's always good when they're going good, you need to be careful with your breeding plan and rear them properly.
"You just do your best and keep your fingers crossed," he added.
Alongside their current racing stock in Cootamundra the Mills family have two potential brood bitches, 12 young pups about 12 weeks old and six 14 month olds which Mills said "are breaking in okay but still have a long way to go".
