    TALENTED young reinsman Corey Johnson registered a personal milestone during the weekend.

    Among South Australia’s most promising drivers, Johnson notched his 100th win thanks to Zigzagzoo’s success at Globe Derby.

    Like most locals, Johnson receives limited opportunities compared to his interstate counterparts, so his century from just a few seasons is a significant achievement.

    Thrilled with his moment in the spotlight, Johnson was quick to thank those who have supported his career.

    “I couldn’t be more thrilled to get to my first century of wins,” Johnson said. “I am rapt and hopefully it’s the first of many.

    “I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to every single owner and trainer who has helped, supported and had faith in me along the way as well as every person who has given me guidance.

    “Without these people I wouldn’t be where I am today and don’t know what I would be doing.”

    Leading throughout from the pole, Zigzagzoo scored by three metres from Muscletonian, which was brave after racing in the ‘death seat’.

    Regal Assassin was 20 metres away third.

    Trained by Luke O’Neill, Zigzagzoo rated a modest 2:06.3 over 2230 metres.
