New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million: Karaka Million 2YO Jockey Comments

We spoke to jockeys competing in the Karaka Million 2YO on New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million Raceday to get their comments on how the race went.

1st Probabeel Opie Bosson

She's all class and was far too good for them today.

2nd Aotea Lad James McDonald

Super run by a super horse. The winner is just a rocket.

3= Yourdeel Matthew Cameron

Huge run. On the back foot out wide. Got a nice drag into the race and ran on well. Will be a nice three-year-old.

3= Appellant Tommy Berry

Great run. If she didn't get held up at the top of the straight she'd probably run second. Took me too long to get going but she's a lovely filly.

5th Beauty Diva Winona Costin

Super run. Got held up a little top of the straight.

6th Aalaalune Shaun McKay

She's gone huge. She got checked at the start and had to go back to last and she's run some good sectionals to finish sixth.

7th Whiskey Neat Leith Innes


8th Blackrocksdetox Vinnie Colgan

Going to be a nice three-year-old.

9th Exuberant Jason Waddell

He has a few issues. The winner was quite impressive today.

10th Neptune's Spear Johnathan Parkes

Committed to go forward on him and was stuck three wide with no cover and wasn't able to maintain that pressure up front.

11th Louis Luck Shafiq Rusof

A bit disappointing. They wouldn't leave him alone in front and he tried to go in one breath then gave up.

12th Tappy's One Samantha Collett

Got back and never traveled.

13th Flaunting Sam Spratt

Was a little green in the running will be better next year.

Last Challa Jonathan Riddell

Never traveled.
