Mother-son combination Marg and Jason Lee have teamed up for group one wins in the past and they're hoping for more success at Saturday's Terang Pacing Cup.
Marg trains and Jason will drive Code Bailey which is one of the leading contenders for the $50,000 group two race at Dalvui Raceway.
The five-year-old has enjoyed strong form since a break with wins at Melton and the Bendigo Cup.
Most recently he finished fourth at the Hunter Cup at Melton.
Jason said Code Bailey had been developing well.
"It was probably more mentally rather than anything, just getting him to want to be a race horse that attacks the line," he said.
"He's taken that next step now and he's been racing against the big boys these last four or five (races) and he's been unbelievable."
Marg believes Code Bailey has a good shot at the pacing cup.
"We're a chance, we've drawn the front which suits us," she said.
"So if we can work forward, we'll give it a good shake I reckon."
Jason said it was great to work with his mum and all the team at their south Ecklin property.
"Yeah she does a good job," he said.
"There's obviously mum and then all the uncles here too, it's definitely a family affair."
He added they had a resilient team.
"Obviously there's some tough times, it's not the easiest game to be involved in," he said.
"There's some late nights and some disappointing times but we definitely make the best of it and have a bit of fun here at work."
Marg said Jason did a great job in the sulky along with all the drivers that race her horses.
Code Bailey will race in a nine-horse field in the 2680-metre race.
The Terang Pacing Cup is at 9.35pm and the trotters cup scheduled for 8.32pm.
It's the biggest meet on Terang Racing Club's calendar.
