Tennessee Tiger, who badly lacerated a toe at his previous Wentworth Park start on December 28, showed he has taken no harm from that injury with an outstanding runaway win in the best time of the night there on Saturday.
The Mark Gatt-trained dog, who is usually a slow beginner, jumped in front and gave nothing else a chance, winning by eight lengths in 29.61sec on a track which was far from fast.
Tennessee Tiger has always been noted for his strength at the finish of 520m so it was no surprise his run home time was an outstanding 11.61sec.
Second fastest 520m times on Saturday were shared by My Bro's Ethics and Look Fancy Nancy, who each led throughout in 29.86.
There is not a more consistently smart beginner than My Bro's Ethics and the David Smith-trained dog, a good railer, made light of box six through another slick getaway, scoring by just under a length from his litter brother and kennelmate Snazzy Ethics.
Smith's father Gavin said later: "My Bro's Ethics puts us in mind of his older half-brother Yankee's Ethics, who won 11 races in 2017 and 2018 and reached top grade at Wentworth Park.''
Look Fancy Nancy, who had been unlucky in two previous Wentworth Park outings when fifth and third, nailed the start in her race on Saturday and was never in danger of defeat, winning by seven lengths.
"That will help pay for the wedding,'' quipped Shaun Evans after Ouzo, owned and trained by his partner Kayla-Jane Coleman, came from second early to notch his second Wentworth Park win in 14 appearances.
Evans explained: "Kayla-Jane and I have been together for eight years and have a two-year-old son so have decided to get married at the end of this month.
"Ouzo handled box one perfectly tonight because early in his career he tended to want to move off the rails slightly in the run to the first turn but he does not do that any more.''
Oscar Awards had not seen Wentworth Park before Saturday night but that did not prevent the Reg Gardoll-trained dog leading throughout in a nippy 30.01 in the opening event.
Gardoll made the eight hour trip from Pillar Valley, in the NSW Northern Rivers, and said later: "I have a couple of handy dogs in work at present so it looks as if I might have to make the long drive more often.''
Oscar Awards is raced by his breeder Colin Miller, whose family have long been renowned breeders in western NSW.
Miller, 58, said: "I have been breeding greyhounds myself for the past decade but from the age of 10 I was helping my parents while they were breeding their dogs.''
Boom youngster She Zipper had to work hard to score her third win in five starts on Saturday night in 30.02.
After jumping in front from box one She Zipper was challenged for the lead for most of the way by Memories One, before gradually drawing away in the straight.
"Memories One really put it to my bitch,'' She Zipper's trainer Peter Lagogiane said.
"But she is very strong and I've told She Zipper's owner that I'm sure she will get a middle distance, at least 600m, so I was not surprised when she pulled away at the finish.''
