Dominant Albany trainer Steve Wolfe added to his prolific Great Southern season with a treble in the first three races at Percy Spencer Racecourse yesterday.

Wolfe is coasting to yet another Great Southern premiership title and took his winning tally in the region to 34 after success with maiden galloper Oxbridge, veteran grey Mr Pago, Sir Snugalot and then Cold As Cold later in the program.

Oxbridge had the blinkers added after a disappointing seventh on debut and the three-year-old gelding improved sharply, showing an impressive turn of foot to win the opening race by one length for jockey Brodie Kirby.

Kirby and Wolfe then teamed up to win race 2, as Mr Pago made it three wins in five starts after outstaying his rivals over 2100m. The former Victorian galloper ran 10th at Ascot last start but bounced back strongly as he lumped 59.5kg to win by more than a length.

The dream start to the seven-race card continued in race three when Sir Snugalot won claimed his first victory at 1500m with Kirby again in the saddle.
