After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
We also had an exhibition gallop from TE AKAU SHARK between races four and five, hear what Opie Bosson had to say about him below:
Te Akau Shark Opie Bosson
It was excellent work, to run the times he did by himself and with so much ease, you couldn't ask for him to be in much better order.
Race 1: Winger Maserati 2100
Felaar Danielle Johnson
They went very slow in front and I ended up getting back to last. He has had a bit of an up-and-down prep and I think that tolled when he hit the wall at the 150-metre mark, hopefully he can improve as he gets deeper into the prep.
Race 2: Partners Life 880
Bavella Leith Innes
Race 3: IRT 1400
Aniceta Opie Bosson
She just raced too fresh and was left found wanting in the end.
Race 4: Mondiale 1400
Swisswatch Eilish McCall (a)
We had to do a lot of work to get where we were in the run and unfortunately that just tolled in the end.
Race 5: Logistics Group 1600
Demonetization Michael Coleman
He was a little bit disappointing, he was off the bit a fair way out. He did pick up to the line but he should be travelling better than that early.
Race 6: Partners Life Soliloquy Stakes
Media Sensation Micheael Coleman
Race 7: South Auckland Racing Club Cup
Tiptronic Trudy Thornton
It was an average run, he didn't find much.
Race 8: Coverstaff 2400
Redcayenne Michael Coleman
It was a good honest run, he gave everything to the line. The winner just has the drop on us today.
