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
