WELSH wizard jockey David Probert enjoyed a spell to remember with an incredible six wins on the spin.
The 32-year-old banged in the first five at his home track Ffos Las at a huge 258-1.
And then his hot streak continued this afternoon as he got on the board in the opener back at the same track.
He steered red-hot favourite Hey Teacher to a cosy win for his boss Andrew Balding.
Probert is enjoying a campaign to remember and already only nine winners off a seasonal best tally.
He's tasted success at Glorious Goodwood and Royal Ascot and will be in action at York's Ebor Festival next week.
Probert said: "That's super special, and to do it at my home track and all it's great.
"It's great to do it front of the public and I've never landed a five-timer before. I need to pinch myself!"
Probert was presented with a bottle of champagne to mark the occasion but it would have had to have stayed put in the fridge as he was back in action the next day.
And after his next win he laughed: "It's been going good. I've been lucky enough to have been riding some nice horses over the last couple of days."
His run ended when he could only manage third in the second race of the day.
But he quickly made amends as he booted home 100-30 jolly Great Havana in the third to make it a memorable seventh victory in less than 24 hours.

Probert still has some way to go to match the exploits of legendary Italian Frankie Dettori who landed a famous seven-timer at Ascot in 1996.
It was the making of the jockey still going strong today and had the bookies running for cover.
