I Boogi taught jockey Damian Lane a valuable lesson as the gelding embarked on his racing career at Werribee

I Boogi taught jockey Damian Lane a valuable lesson as the gelding embarked on his racing career at Werribee.

Lane told then trainer Russell Cameron he thought the gelding was unbeatable at his debut in January 2016.

However the gelding went up in the air as the gates opened before flashing home to run second.

“I came back in after that race and said I’ll never declare a horse again,” Lane said.

Lane was reunited with I Boogi in Saturday’s Jockey Celebration Day Handicap giving the jockey his first metropolitan winner since his return from Japan.

The victory also provided Cameron’s son Scott his first metropolitan win in his own name after starting out in a partnership with his father.

“This horse still has his issues but Scott deals with him really well,” Lane said.

“He’s been such a long work in progress and it’s good to get another win out of him.”

Supported from $20 into $10, I Boogi scored a long neck win from The Great Artiste ($12) with Mercy Street ($17) 1-3/4 lengths away third.

Lane had a successful return to riding at Pakenham on Thursday and has been working hard re-establishing connections.

“It’s always good to get a break from the constant racing here,” Lane said.

“It refreshes your body and your mind and I’m keen to ride as many winners as I can leading up to the spring.

“I’m still picking up rides for the same trainers before I left, so it’s good I haven’t lost those connections.”
