Apprentice jockey Tina Comignaghi picked up a double at Phar Lap Raceway on Tuesday, securing her 100th career riding win.
The South Island hoop recorded her 99th win aboard Miss Ricky Bobby in the More FM Sprint (1200m).
Later in the card Comignaghi was able to kick home Rainman to win the Hardgrave Decorating Mile (1600m) aboard Rainman for employers John and Karen Parsons, to bring up a century of wins in the saddle for the 29-year-old.
Indentured to the Parsons, Comignaghi is in her fifth season of riding in New Zealand and is currently experiencing her best term with 40 wins.
