We spoke to jockeys competing in the Brighthill Farm Concorde Handicap on New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million Raceday to get their comments on how the race went.
1st Julius Jake Bayliss
He is a big raw horse. He won easy and still has plenty of big races left in him.
2nd Romancer Cameron Lammas
It was a huge run for his first go in this company. We got back and he has stormed home.
3rd Elusive Treasure Trudy Thornton
Huge effort. On a slower track or at 1400m he would have gone even closer.
4th Akoya Danielle Johnson
She went super. She just got a little lost around the corner but she fought hard in the straight.
5th Sultan Of Swing Chris Johnson
We had to go back from the gate and he flew late.
6th Passing Shot Samantha Collett
It was another tough run. The week between the runs probably didn't help.
7th Lewis Caroll Shaun McKay (a)
It was a good run. He has missed a run recently and he had a good blow. He still has improvement in him.
8th Chachar Alysha Collett
It was a good run. She just needs a bit more of an off track.
9th Enzo's Lad Sam Weatherley (a)
The 7 day back up under 60kg probably just proved to be too much. He will be better further down in the weights.
10th Mahalo Michael Coleman
Just a bit ordinary today.
11th Ferrando Mathew Cameron
He was a little bit disappointing. The trip to Wellington and back probably took it out of him and the track is probably just not hard enough for him. He will keep after a break.
12th Fully Funded Sam Spratt
He was disappointing today.
Last Speech Craft Rosie Myers
He was a little disappointing. He just wasn't going good enough when the run presented itself.
