Wagga trainer Trevor Sutherland enjoyed success at Albury on Monday as Let's Get Animal broke through for a well-deserved maiden victory.
Let's Get Animal ($2.60) produced the run of the day, bolting in by 6.6 lengths to win the Just Safes Australia Maiden Plate (1400m).
The three-year-old son of Animal Kingdom was aided by a perfect ride from Blaike McDougall.
Sutherland was pleased to see Let's Get Animal break through after five minor placings from his first 11 starts.
"It had nice pace on paper for him and it was nice to see him ease and take a suit, then go away from them," Sutherland said.
"I really do like him and think he's a lovely stayer in the making.
"It was nice to see him go away from them and put them to the sword.
"It was a lovely ride by Blaike."
Meantime, Parliament ($2.50) continued his brilliant start to his time in Australia with another win at Albury on Monday.
Parliament made it three wins from four starts since joining the Andrew Dale stable when taking out the Southern Asset Services Class Two Handicap (1600m).
Parliament won by 1.5 lengths from the fast-finishing Two Wrongs Dont ($5.00) and Tribal Myth ($20.00).
Dale said he will look to see if there are any suitable class three Highway Handicaps in Sydney for Parliament before his impending move from Albury to Wangaratta.
Benjamery ($4.00) won the last race for hospitalised Albury trainer Pat Widdup.
Widdup watched on from hospital after being kicked by a horse on the weekend and injuring his arm.
