Victorian jockey Linda Meech notched her 100th Australian winner for the season at Wodonga yesterday, when 2YO gelding Lingo (Stratum-Jargon, by Mossman) scored on debut over 1100m for trainers Matt Ellerton & Simon Zahra. It is the 3rd time in 4 years Meech has ridden 100 winners in a season (following 111 in the 2008-09 & 109 in 2009-10). Meech is the only female rider to occupy a top 20 position on the nationwide premiership table, currently headed by Craig Newitt with 160 winners.
