"But when it's time to go and he's behind those boxes you can just feel it in him, he's a wound up ready to go."
Jury was challenged along the back straight by fellow Queenslander Maurice Minor and New South Wales dog Catch Me Curly pressing hard.
Brett marvelled on his dogs ability to rise to the occasion.
"He thrives on the competition, Maurice Minor he'd be one of the strongest 500m dogs around and I know how strong Catch Me Curly is because we've had him in the kennel the last three weeks," he said
"Around the back I was thinking we might be in a little bit of trouble here, you never know after a big run last week when they power out if it's going to take it out of them, but to just keep kicking on like he did I couldn't be prouder of him."
Brett said the occasion was topped off by a family connection and winning the inaugural UBET Origin Series.
"My brother and his wife are down, he's never been to Albion Park so to have them tonight is pretty special and to win the first installment of this concept is even better."
Brett plans to give his star dog some time off before refocusing on group one glory.
"The plan is to go on to nationals, that's two really tough runs so we'll ease off him for a little," he said.
"But he's been to Melbourne and raced down there at Sandown where the finals are, so it's always nice when they've seen the track."
The match race between Queensland's It's Dyllan and New South Wales Mister Beluchi was far from a dead rubber, as the two dog dual captivated onlookers, with Mister Beluchi putting the blues on the board in a back and forth battle.

Double Chip clocked the second fastest winning time of the night in 29.85, getting the better of Hara's Honey in a bobbing finish.
