    KEN ROGERS has apologised to leading reinswoman Dani Hill for ruining her night.

    Rogers’ tongue-in-cheek apology came as a result of his win with Wills at Port Pirie less than an hour ago.

    By partnering the Wayne Brodie-trained gelding to victory, Rogers restricted Hill to six wins on the seven-race card.

    “I told Dani I was sorry for ruining her night as soon as we got back to scale,” Roger said. “At that stage she had won the first five races.

    “I put an end to her streak, so even with a win, I feel like the villain.”

    Hill bounced back in the following event to register her first sextet to become just the fourth South Australian to achieve the feat.

    Geoff Webster was the ground breaker at Globe Derby in December 2003.

    Hill’s partner David Harding on six races at Globe Derby in February 2006, while her brother, Wayne, notched a half-dozen at Victor Harbour in December 2015.

    Kerryn Manning, who has three sextets, is the only other reinswoman in Australia among the elite group of drivers.

    Opening her account with Jacks Legacy, Hill was then triumphant with Reva, Badelaide, Mymatethomo, Ultimate Won and Queen Me.

    Hill’s haul included a treble for trainer Lyndon Hall and a double for Tyson Linke.

    Driving in sensational form, Hill has won an incredible 22 races since February 1- the beginning of the Teal Pants campaign.

    During last season’s teal charity period Hill led the nation with 32 wins and is well clear again this term.
