Greyhound trainer Jordi McQuillen, 23, and her two-year-old greyhound Intoxicating claimed their maiden career win in Warrnambool last month.

Intoxicating stormed home, setting a new personal best to win Race 2 on Monday, October 9, at Warrnambool Greyhound Racing Club.

The McQuillen-trained chaser lined up in the 390m contest, paying $4.20, while race favourite Redemption Rock, trained by Greater Geelong’s Kathryne Tabb, was paying $2.50.

Intoxicating’s budding career is rather the family affair, with McQuillen sharing ownership of the two-year-old greyhound with her parents, Mick and Michelle.

The McQuillen family are well-known among the local sporting community, holding strong ties with the Boisdale-Briagolong Football-Netball Club and Sale Greyhound Club, where Jordi’s parents, Mick and Michelle, work as fulltime employees.

Intoxicating’s maiden win in Warrnambool last month was a proud moment for McQuillen.

“Our little princess finally breaks her maiden, and we couldn’t be more over the moon with her performance,” McQuillen said.

“To own a dog with my parents is so surreal, but her winning is just the icing on top, truly one of the best moments in my career to date.

“From a pet living on my bed in March to now a winner at the track, what a turnaround.”

McQuillen thanked those who have continued to support her in establishing a career in greyhound racing.

“[A] massive thank you to my parents for doing the hard yards with getting her to stop flipping in the boxes,” she said.

“Also, a massive shout out to Peter Schofield for taking her in and pre-training her when I didn’t have the room for her.

“Last but not least, my bosses, Darren and Simone, for giving me the opportunity to train my own bitch. Couldn’t be possible without your support.”
