Gunnedah greyhound trainer Jamie Bush cleaned up with five wins to his name at last week’s race meet in Gunnedah on Thursday.

The multiple victories followed a winning treble at the Gunnedah track the week earlier.

Bush was stunned by the strong recent results.

“We didn’t expect it all,” he said.

A highlight for the local trainer was the last start win by three-year-old, Billy Bush, in the 431-metre race eight.

“He had to come from a long way back,” he said.

The dog won by a length in a time of 25.09 seconds to take out top honours – his second win from as many starts. The week prior, Billy Bush won by almost two lengths over the same distance at Gunnedah.

Jamie’s daughter, Tahni, with greyhounds Franky Bear and Mick the Master – both which won their races at Gunnedah last week.

Bush’s other wins last Thursday included Franky Bear (race one), Joe Cargo (race two), Buddy Mac (race three) and Mick The Master (race nine).

The Gunnedah trainer currently has only 12 dogs in work and many are achieving success.

“We didn’t plan on having this many, but it’s been going good,” Bush said.

Aside from Billy Bush, his other wins at Gunnedah’s February 1 race included Jeanie Cargo (race two) and Royman (race seven).

The greyhound gig is now a full-time role for Bush who shares the syndicate with fellow local trainer, Beau Hanson.

“I’m taking [the training role] day-by-day but thoroughly enjoying it,” he said.

Bush is also assisted by daughter Tahni who, like her father, also lives and breathes greyhound racing.

Gunnedah Greyhound Racing Club’s Geoff Rose described Bush as one of the best trainers in country NSW.

Bush’s recent wins were just rewards for doing the hard yards in the weeks prior.

“He puts in a lot of hard work,” Rose said. “You don’t get to win five races without doing the work.”

Bush is now preparing his leading dogs to step up in distance at metropolitan tracks in Sydney and Newcastle.
