Christmas Carnival Boxing Day Races: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

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

Race 1: Dunstan Feeds Stayers Championship Qualifier 2100

Blue Breeze Sam Spratt

He's not a very big horse and I think he struggled to sprint with the 60KG today.

Race 2: SNG Media 1100

Appellant Samantha Collett


Race 3: Auckland Co-Op Taxis 1400

Back In A Flash Andrew Calder


Race 4: Shaw's Wire Ropes Uncle Remus Stakes

Dawn Patrol Jason Waddell

He was very brave. The track was too wet and he was a little wayward, but we will tinker with some gear and we will try correct that.

Race 5: Barfoot & Thompson 1200

Meteoric Lass Shafiq Rusof

She went good. The winner was simply too good for us today.

Race 6: Cambridge Stud Eight Carat Classic

Media Sensation Michael Coleman

She was very disappointing today. There might be a health issue there. That was well below her best.

Race 7: Dunstan Feeds 1500 Championship Final

Lincoln Raider Opie Bosson

He never got going whatsoever.

Race 8: Hallmark Stud Handicap

She's A Thief Michael Coleman

She just didn't handle the track at all.

Race 9: Cambridge Stud Zabeel Classic

Danzdanzdance Opie Bosson


Race 10: Otakiri Reserve 1600

Campobasso Vinnie Colgan
