Central Districts jockey Jonathan Parkes had a day to remember at Otaki on Wednesday, riding home five winners on the eight race card.
He kicked off proceedings in the opening race, riding Te Akau Dragon to win his maiden after two previous placings for Jamie Richards.
While he was unplaced aboard the Lisa Latta-trained Lincoln Lane in the Cavallo Farm & Chris Rutten Bloodstock (1400m), he then won four races in succession.
He guided home the David Goldsbury-trained Myrtle to win the El Cheapo Cars (1400m) by a neck before steering home Rekohu Diva to a more comfortable three-quarter of a length victory in the Sunrans spa (1200m).
Parkes then gave Awapuni trainer Mike Breslin a winning double when riding home Light Up and Almo Costa to close margin victories in their respective races.
