Five winners at Oamaru on Thursday gave Lisa Allpress a 12 win lead in the national jockeys' premiership and took her within four wins of her career best season tally.
Allpress went into the meeting seven wins clear of nearest rival Matthew Cameron, but wins aboard Come Fly With Me, Black Estate, Margarita Mover, Mystic Power and Joe Bonanno extended her lead.

She has now ridden 155 winners for the season, just shy of her previous best of 159 set in the 2011-12 season.
Thursday's bag of five was the second time in her career she had won that many races in a day, the previous coming at Hawera in August, 2010.
Allpress continues her premiership quest with rides at Otaki on Friday and Riccarton on Saturday. – NZ Racing Desk.
