Christmas at the Races Barfoot & Thompson Day: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

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

Race 1: DDB 1200

River Run Vinnie Colgan

Nice run by him. It was the first time running this way round. Should be winning next time.

Race 2: Brookby Stables 2200

Carli Rose Michael Coleman

Little disappointing. Didn't really travel that well most of the way and just ground away in the run home.

Race 3: Dunstan Feeds Stayers Championships Qualifier 2200

Terra Sancta Leith Innes

Nice run. Just beaten by the winner at the weights with the claim.

Race 4: JR Webb & Son 1200

Marzemino Andrew Calder


Race 5: Celebrating Dawn Williams' 1000th winner 1200

Princess Kereru Cameron Lammas


Race 6: Group 3 Bonecrusher Stakes

Total Excess Michael Coleman

Nice run by him. He kept finding the line. Up and comer.

Race 7: Dunstan Feeds 1500 Championship Qualified

Monrecur Darren Danis

Travelled pretty good. Got held up a bit turning for home but finished strongly.

Race 8: Auckland Co-Op Taxis 2200

Starrybeel Michael McNab

I had a lovely run. Tried to sprint with them. He was only alright in the straight. Maybe right handed tripped him up.
