Bonecrusher New Zealand Stakes: Jockey Comments

We spoke to jockeys competing in the Bonecrusher New Zealand Stakes to get their comments on how the race went.

1st: Melody Belle Opie Bosson

She's just a tough little mare. When there's a dogfight she really stuck her head out at the line.

2nd: Danzdanzdance Craig Grylls

She traveled really good. Almost a little too good. She ran up to the winner put her head in front and to the winners credit she kicked back. Really brave effort by my mare.

3rd: Rondinella Vinnie Colgan

Really good run. She was struggling with the track conditions but got out wide and she got home well.

4th: Authentic Paddy Robbie Hannam

A good honest fourth. I put him to the sword turning for home and he's stuck on really well.

5th: Vin De Dance Matt Cameron

Wasn't a bad run just plugged a bit in the ground. He whacked away.

6th: Saint Emilion Jonathan Riddell

Horse was feeling good but track was not ideal.

7th: On The Rocks Jake Bayliss

Hopeless in the wet.

8th: Shadow Cast Johnathan Parkes

He was just tripped up a little on the track and first time over 2000 meters did't suit him with the rain.

9th: Elusive Treasure Darren Danis

Track was a bit too heavy for him.

Last: Farm Boy Michael McNab

Was never in the race.
