Popular Cambridge horsewoman Ngaire Fraser made a surprise confession after watching her promising galloper Lewis Caroll score in fine style at Te Rapa on Saturday.

Lewis Caroll - Trish Dunell
Fraser had just produced the stylish Darci Brahma gelding for his fifth win from just eight starts, courtesy of a picture-perfect ride by Opie Bosson. It was Bosson's first ride on the four-year-old with Fraser admitting she had never met New Zealand's leading jockey before legging him aboard her charge.

"It was the first time I had met him and everyone told me you don't tell him what to do," she laughed.

"It was a great ride as I was a bit frightened he might get trapped when he drew number one. He pulled him off the rails so we didn't get in that position so it was perfect."

Bosson made good use of the inside draw as he bounced Lewis Caroll to an early lead before handing up to former Hong Kong galloper Dancing Flames. Taken off the fence to sit a length off the pacemaker, Bosson tracked the speed before issuing a challenge early in the run home. Dancing Flames refused to give in without a fight as the pair set down to do dour struggle with Lewis Caroll asserting himself just short of the winning post to score by a short neck.

"I've no idea where we will go next as we just take one day at a time," said Fraser.

"He's such a good horse so we are a bit lucky to have him."

The victory brought up a winning treble for Bosson who was successful earlier in the day on Our Abbadean and Love Affair.
