We spoke to jockeys competing in the Barneswood Farm Eclipse Stakes at our Christmas Carnival New Year's Day Races Raceday to get their comments on how the race went.
1st Melt Michael McNab
It was a different race to the other day. She was under pressure and found and was just too good.
2nd Bit Lippy Cameron Lammas
It was a very big run. He was a little flat footed early but he found the line superbly.
3rd She's A Thief Jake Bayliss
She had a good look around. She is still learning and now she has had a look around Ellerslie it will help for the Karaka Million.
4th Al Hasa Opie Bosson
It was a good run. He had a good blow afterwards.
5th Sir Nate Masa Tanaka
He jumped a little slower than I would have liked. Once rebalanced up he hit the line nicely.
6th Luvlucy Vinnie Colgan
She will make a beautiful 3 year old.
Last Beastmode Jonathan Parkes
He had a nice run but just didn't finish it off like the other day.
