We spoke to jockeys competing in the Sistema Railway at our Christmas Carnival New Year's Day Races Raceday to get their comments on how the race went.
1st Volpe Veloce Jake Bayliss
She travelled well. We got the run when we wanted and she found when we needed. You just cant explain Group 1 feelings.
2nd Packing Eagle Trudy Thornton
I think that if we had firmer ground they wouldn't have beaten us.
3rd Volks Lightning Chris Johnson
It was a top run. I thought we could win 100m out but the winner was too good.
4th Start Wondering Jonathan Parkes
It was a top run. We were just left alone in front and we were a sitting duck for the swoopers.
5th Sweet Leader Leith Innes
It was a super run. He got a little lost on the inside by himself but he went well.
6th Melody Belle Michael McNab
We were just annoyed in front and didn't quite finish it off.
7th Speech Craft Rosie Myers
It was a good gutsy run. He tried hard but I don't think the track conditions were in his favour.
8th Go Nicholas Mark Du Plessis
He just hated the track.
9th Somethingvain Cameron Lammas
She was just outclassed today.
Last Fully Funded Sam Spratt
He didn't settle the greatest and I don't think he liked that track at all.
