Barfoot & Thompson 3YO Salver Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

Exhibition gallops

Media Sensation Michael Coleman

The day out here would do her good. She was a quite fresh, she had a good look around the place but I was really happy how she worked through the line.

Sword Of Osman Opie Bosson

He felt really good. It was a nice relaxed gallop which he did under his own steam. I was very happy with him.

Exuberant Jason Waddell

He was working at a leisurely gallop to just stretch his legs and have a look around Ellerslie for the first time. He was on the wrong leg on the last bit around the corner but that's why we brought him here for that experience. He'll head to the Eclipse Stakes and will run well.

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

Race 1: Ross Reid Racer 1200

Markle Leith Innes

She had a easy lead from the ace draw. Finished just over two lengths from the winner. She'll improve with the run.

Race 2: Ross Roof Runner 1400

Langkawi Shaun McKay

It was a huge run. We sat outside the leader, he dropped the bit and was gawking around. When they went past him, he quickened again and hit the line well. I think he's looking for a mile.

Race 3: Stella Artois 1400

Let's Do This Michael McNab

She ran well. She got pushed to the middle of the track and battled on in the home straight.

Race 4: Mag N Turbo Catch Me If You Can Soul Man 1600

Star Karen Michael Coleman

She ground away a bit in the run home but hit the line well. Improving filly.

Race 5: Perpetual Pacer 1300

She's Not Bad Opie Bosson

She had every chance. Disappointing run.

Race 6: Wood For the Trees & Auckland Harley Davisdon Bat Out Of Hell 1200

Darci Palmer Opie Bosson

He didn't feel good in his action. He was beaten at the 200m mark.

Race 7: Barfoot & Thompson 3YO Salver

Cutadeel Opie Bosson


Race 8: Dunstan Feeds 1500 Championships Qualifier

Penteverest Jason Waddell
