Collins, who is from down the road in Warwick, also likened Incentivise to Bernborough in regards to his significance to the area of the Darling Downs.
Collins is quite happy to go a step further in his assessment.
“I will make a prediction – in my time as being a race caller, we have seen two notable champions in Black Caviar and Winx, and I believe that Incentivise will join them in that high level of company,” Collins said.
“He is not proven there yet; he has a few hurdles to jump just yet but he is on that way.”
Toowoomba and the Darling Downs are steeped in racing history and Toowoomba Regional Council Mayor Paul Antonio recognises the impact the sport has in his area.
“The horse industry in Toowoomba is quite big and very broad, but the racing industry is something we focus on with a great deal of pride,” Antonio said.
“Horses and racing provides the town with a great deal of employment, which is good for our economy.
“And of course, Clifford Park is something special in the hearts of everyone in Toowoomba.”
Racing Queensland CEO Brendan Parnell noted the significance of Incentivise's achievements.
"How good has it been for Queensland racing and breeding to have Incentivise flying our flag," Parnell said.
"He is just the second Queenslander to win the Caulfield Cup in half a century.
"We wish the team behind Incentivise all the best for the first Tuesday in November as plenty in the Sunshine State will be cheering him on."
Antonio has been Mayor of the region since 2012 and is a proud man to see a stayer bred on the Darling Downs being the shortest priced favourite in the Melbourne Cup since the legend Phar Lap all those generations ago.
“Any kind of exposure like this does Toowoomba very good,” Antonio said.
“We are living in an environment now where people are not travelling overseas, they may now want to come and see Australia’s Garden City following watching Incentivise.
“They might want to come here and get an understanding of what horse racing means in this community.”
A multiple winner of Toowoomba’s most famous race – the Weetwood Handicap – Kemp thinks Incentivise’s rise to fame is impacting the entire Darling Downs region.
“It lifts everybody, there is no doubt,” Kemp said.
“This horse has now won nine straight with them being around the country.
“You cannot beat that sort of excitement for our area and town – a race horse like him it is special.”
