JOHN Walter called it ‘one of the most amazing wins he had ever seen’ – and it’s hard not to agree.
Four-kilo claiming apprentice Corinne Miles claimed her first ever race victory on Saturday, as Caught A Cracker ($21) took out a Benchmark 53 race at Lismore.
In her nine previous race starts Miles had beaten just two runners home. It appeared a similar fate awaited her after Caught A Cracker flopped out of the gates to settle last in the field of 15.

But as inside runs gradually opened up, Miles and her mount were able to make up many lengths before dashing away in the final 100m.
It was Caught A Cracker’s second win in 26 racetrack starts, and just the seventh winner for trainer Julie Green in the past 12 months.
NSW form expert Walter was astounded at what he saw.
“You have a young girl riding in her tenth race start - she had beaten home only two runners in previous nine starts,” Walter said.
“The horse literally drives her around the race track and was quite well backed in from $51 with most corporate bookmakers.”
