Greg Baldwin was in his Gre Gre shed when his champion colt created Group 1 history.
He watched as Lunar Fox settled in the midfield, before surging past a tiring favourite to win the Australian Guineas at $301 odds.
The result saw the three-year-old enter the record books as the longest-priced Group 1 winner in Australian racing history.
"It caught us all off guard," Baldwin told Whateley.

"I've always dreamed of being in a horse of winning a Group 1 race.
"With about 50 metres we just lifted the roof off the old shed. The dog ran out and didn't come back for about a hour.
"The rest of the day was just the other end of the scale."
The Paul Preusker-trained colt is part-owned by Baldwin, Horsham's Kevin Jones, Murtoa trio Gary Brown, Leigh Williams and Ritchie Brown, Willaura farmer Jim Burke, Gre Gre's Jacinda O'Sullivan and St Arnaud's Peter Knight.
"We were shocked, absolutely shocked," Baldwin said.
"The boys were there in the shed and Ritchie Brown went pale in the face. OI "Butchie" Williams went down on the concrete. There were some funny things going on.
"We were pretty happy there were no cameras on us. We were carrying on pretty silly.
"It's a group of people who have been in the racing game a long time and it's by far their best result.
"It was just unbelievable and it comes when you least expect it."
Baldwin revealed there were serious discussions about even entering Lunar Fox in the race.
"Paul was pretty confident that he was absolutely healthy and had been training well," Baldwin said.
"We were dragging our feet around all day, thinking how long of a day it was.
"It was very, very quiet. To have a horse in a Group 1 race it was the saddest, most morbid (day) because we were that focused on making sure the horse was alright."
An All-Star Mile berth and a shot at a $5 million prize pool awaits Lunar Fox, but the Wimmera-based part-owner isn't sure if he can pull himself away from the shed to make the trip to The Valley.
"I tend to be very superstitious," Baldwin said.
"I was in my shed when we won our first Group 1 (race), and I'd like to come down but I don't know if we can change a winning formula."
