Exciting 3YO Set For Stakes Test
Unbeaten New Zealand 3YO Lewis Caroll (Darci Brahma-Yellow Brick Road, by Soviet Star) will have one more start before he takes on his own age group at stakes level, reports NZ Racing Desk. The son of Darci Brahma has been untested in both of his wins to date for Cambridge trainer and breeder Ngaire Fraser, who races the gelding with her daughter Wendy. "We've had a couple of little niggles with him, but no more than any other racehorse, and he'll head to Tauranga for a Rating 75 over 1200 metres on the 26th and all going well he'll then run in the Cambridge Breeders' Stakes," Fraser said. Whether Lewis Caroll stays close to Cambridge in the longer-term is also undecided with a number of overseas agents having made inquiries about the horse. "There have been offers, but it's such a prolonged process and we still own him," Fraser said. "Everything we've ever asked him to do he's done easily and he won a trial as a spring two-year-old and then went shin sore so we took him along slowly." Lewis Caroll, whose second dam is Alice Blue Gown, derives his name from the famous writer and author of the children's classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"; Lewis Carroll.
