Christmas Carnival New Year’s Day Races: Barneswood Farm Eclipse Stakes Jockey comments

We spoke to jockeys competing in the Group 3 Barneswood Farm Eclipse Stakes on Christmas Carnival New Year's Day Races to get their comments on how the race went.

1st Whiskey Neat Leith Innes

It was a great run. He did all the work and was out on his feet late but he just kept fighting.

2nd Aotea Lad Opie Bosson

It was a really really good run. Swap the gates and I think he would've won.

3rd Exuberant Jason Waddell

It was a super run from a very brave horse. If you wanted to take a horse to war, he would be my pick.

4th Aalaalune Samantha Collett

It was a super run. She just jumped up when the gates opened and that cost us a length. She made up a stack of ground in the straight. It was a nice run from a filly going forward.

5th Last Sight Cameron Lammas

We had a nice spot in the run but she just battled in the straight. It was a little bit disappointing really.

6th Anna Cecelia Shaun McKay

She went good, I think she is just a little bit new to the game. She had a big look around and she will be better for the experience.

7th Power's That Be Jake Bayliss

I think she will be a better horse at 1400m or 1600m, she doesn't quicken she just keeps up a solid gallop.

Last Shampagne Dancer Darren Danis (a)

She is just not a natural 2YO.
