Wagga apprentice jockey Rebeka Prest claimed a hat-trick of wins at Albury on Saturday.
Prest started her run on Another Jay Brown ($26) in the Benchmark 58 Handicap (1500m) for Corowa trainer Rick Freyer.
“I’ve got a lot of time for her, whenever I can I put her on,” he said.
“She seems to lift and the stint she had away in Sydney has really brought her on and she rode terrifically to get three winners.”

Prest edged out Albury trainer Andrew Dale’s Lawton Joseph ($5.50) by less than a quarter of a length.
Prest then followed it with a win on Wagga trainer Doug Vickers’ Liberty Boy ($12) in the Class 1 Handicap (1175m) and rounded out the hat-trick on Phil Sweeney’s Moving On Up ($1.85F) in the 900m sprint.
And Little Red Devil ($3.10) appears to have farewelled Dale’s stable in style.
The eight-year-old is expected to be sold to a North Queensland buyer after snaring the ninth win of his career in the Benchmark 66 (2000m).
