“He is a handy little dog and he looks like he is only going to get better,” Oshyer said.
“I have known the owner for a fair few years, Toni Graham, and I have raced other dogs with her – the couple of them.
“Toni has owned a lot of dogs and always been a strong supporter of racing in Queensland.
“We will probably take Balciano to Albion Park over 520 metres now.”
Oshyer has five greyhounds in work at the moment and said he was a proud winner of the RQ NAIDOC Celebration Chase post-race.
Kaylene Bowden, from the by Koormuri Cultural Dance Troupe, who also performed at Redcliffe earlier this month, enjoyed the experience of celebrating her culture at race meetings.
“I think it is awesome what Racing Queensland is doing for NAIDOC, it is absolutely beautiful,” Bowden said.
“This is a good little turn out at Capalaba on Sunday – I just love it.
“I love coming and doing this, Redcliffe was great too.”
Bowden’s nephew, Jahmarley Dawson, thrilled the crowd with his Didgeridoo skills while also aiming to educate those in attendance at Capalaba.
“Australian people have come along way in understanding Aboriginal culture and that has come through education,” Dawson said.
