It's not just the NRL premiership Jarrod Croker's looking to scale, but the Canberra Raiders co-captain has Kosciuszko in his sights as well.
Not to mention having his first race horse running at group level. To quote the point-scoring Green Machine, he's "bloody excited".
It was looking like the Kurt Goldman-trained Intuition was going to run in the listed Ramornie Handicap (1200 metres) at Grafton on Wednesday.
But instead the five-year-old gelding will run in the group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday instead.
Croker said jockey Dwayne Dunn was booked to ride him as the Raiders centre goes looking for his first black type.
He's just got to get past the army and police patrolling the closed NSW-Victoria border first.
"We're nominated for the group 3 at Caulfield on Saturday. I think with the borders closed we're still actually allowed to send him down there and I think [trainer] Mick Price will look after him," Croker told SEN on Tuesday.
"I think there's the opportunity to race in another group 3 in a fortnight's time after that.
"He ran really well down at Flemington first up, I think Dwayne Dunn might be booked to ride him.
"A nice [barrier] draw would be nice and a bit of luck and who knows."
All going well, there'll be an even bigger race to fry for Croker and Intuition come the spring.
There's the small matter of the $1.3 million Kosciuszko (1400m) at Randwick on October 19.
It's the country equivalent to the $14 million Everest (1400m), which is run on the same day.
All going well for Croker and the Raiders, he might not be able to be there to watch the race though - given it's the same weekend as the NRL grand-final qualifiers.
Croker's been a long-time fan of racing and boasts trotting trainer Brad Hewitt as one of his best mates.
This time he's gone in with his dad Greg as part owners of the son of Street Cry.
There's nothing wrong with Intuition's breeding, with Street Car also having sired Winx - a horse you might've heard of.
"Intuition has only had the one start for us. Kurt bought him off Godolphin and has set him for The Kosciuszko," Croker said.
"Having him race down the Flemington straight first up and Caulfield on the weekend in a group 3 - I'm hoping he's got the most success [of any horse I've owned].
"Hopefully we can get a slot in the big one."
