Jerilderie sprinter Pleasant stamped himself as one of the most promising prospects in the Southern District with a dominant victory at Murrumbidgee Turf Club on Sunday.
On a day full of impressive performances, it was Pleasant's nine-length romp in the Sheather's Painting & Decorating Wagga Whiz (1000m) that took the cake for best effort of the card.
Apprentice jockey Tyler Schiller took Pleasant ($2.05) straight to the front and the seven-year-old exploded away in the straight to win by nine lengths.
It was Pleasant's third win in four starts since joining Phil Sweeney's stable and took his overall record to five wins from 13 starts.
"He's definitely a classy horse and we've done a great job with him back at home, Phil and the team," Schiller told Sky Racing.
When second favourite Logan River missed the start, Schiller was able to get an easy lead on Pleasant and the rest is history.
The promising young apprentice believes Pleasant still had more left in the tank despite winning by nine.
"He definitely does and if a horse came up next to him, he would have found another length or two, which is very good," Schiller said.
"He's probably one of the nicer horses in the stable."
Meantime, it was a day for doubles at Wagga.
Tumut trainer Kerry Weir led the way as Billo Road ($3.90) and Jounama ($19.00) both enjoyed wins.
Billo Road took out the Pacific Suites Canberra Maiden Handicap (1600m) for Rebeka Prest, while Kayla Nisbet guided Jounama to victory in the Ron Crouch Transport Benchmark 58 Handicap (1200m).
It was the second leg of a winning double for Prest, who enjoyed success earlier on the Gary Colvin-trained Chuave Dog ($3.70) in the Commins Hendriks Maiden Plate (1200m).
Having his first start for Colvin, Chuave Dog was sensationally backed from $17 into $3.70 favourite and got the job done.
Blaike McDougall also enjoyed a winning double, fresh on the back of a metropolitan winner for Chris Waller at Rosehill on Saturday.
McDougall won the D &S Taber 2019 Riverina Cup Benchmark 74 Handicap (3800m) on Da Deputy ($4.00) for the Hayes and Dabernig stable.
He then finished the day with another win on Gentleman Max ($2.70) in the Pat Hyland Open Handicap (1400m).
It was Gentleman Max's 14th win at start 101.
