Jockey Danielle Scott has wasted little time in out-riding her 4-kilogram claim.

Scott achieved the feat after partnering Let's Get Animal to victory for trainer Trevor Sutherland at Wagga on Sunday.

The mother-of-two only resumed riding in late March and has landed five winners since her comeback.

Scott will now have her claim reduced to 3kg and is allowed to ride 20 more winners before a further reduction.

"I didn't really expect to out-ride my 4kg claim as quickly as I did, so it was a nice surprise," Scott said.

"The support from everyone, especially the trainers has been overwhelming to say the least.

"I didn't have any real expectations when I returned to riding so to land five winners from about 20 rides is a bonus.

"I don't think there is a lot of difference between being able to claim 4kg and 3kg so hopefully I can keep picking up plenty of rides and keep on improving."
