    LAST night’s Dubbo meeting developed into a family affair after seven members of the Turnbull tribe made their way into the winners’ circle.

    Led by Steve, the crew include his children Amanda, Josh, Mitch and Nathan along with his sister-in-law, Wendy, and her son Jason.

    Registering five wins as a driver, Steve bookended the program with Cullens Desire and Bradness Eldefuego.

    Amanda trains Cullens Desire, while Steve prepares the latter.

    Father and daughter also combined to score with Now Eye See, with Steve also training and driving Hey Porsha to a narrow victory.

    Steve’s trainer-son Josh provided him with a leg of his quintet when Glenferrie Crest covered the 1720-metre trip in 1:59.8.

    It’s the fourth time Steve has driven five winners on a card, with his previous quintet coming in December 1993.

    Nathan joined forces with Mitch to emerge triumphant with Reverse Psychology.

    With Mitch holding the reins, the son of Rock N Roll Heaven was untouched on his way to a 12-metre victory.

    Wendy and Jason chimed in with Fundamental, which led throughout to complete a soft win from Limbo Larry and Laser Major.

    “It was a good night out for the family,” Steve said. “We all have different roles or different teams in work, but it’s still a family affair.”

    It’s not the first time the Turnbulls have set such a record.

    In December 1988 members of the clan filled the first five placings in a race at Bathurst, which remains an Australian record.

    Cindy led the way from her father, Tony, and brothers, Steve, Craig and Greg
