Auckland Age Concerns Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.

Race 1: Logan Campbell Retirement Village 1400

Skyweka Cameron Lammas

She went great, the race just wasn't run to suit her.

Race 2: Auckland Elder Abuse Response Service 1600

Artiste Mathew Cameron


Race 3: Davis Funerals 1200

Below Zero Mark Du Plessis

She went really good, she was just a little wary in the straight but thats just because she's new to the racing game and leading probably didn't help.

Race 4: Dunstan Feeds 1500 Championship Qualifier

Its Destinys Child Maija Vance

We were a touch slow away so from the draw we went back and she just ran around a little in the straight, she will improve with the experience.

Race 5: Auckland Age Concerns 3yo Salver

Formidable Leith Innes


Race 6: Dunstan Feeds 1500 Championship Qualifier

Haussmann Leith Innes

He went really well, the gaps just didn't open for him and he went to the line untested.

Race 7: Accredited Visiting Service 1500

Howbowdat Maija Vance

From the draw, I tried to go back and get across but he was just too keen, rather than fight him I elected to let him slide forward mid-race and that effort just tolled late.
