We spoke to jockeys competing in the Sistema Stakes to get their comments on how the race went.
1st: Yourdeel Opie Bosson
It was a good effort. He pulled hard the whole race but he picked himself off the deck. It was a huge effort.
2nd: Aalaalune Reese Jones
Probably wasn't happy with the track as heavy as it was. Good game run. Stepping up to 1400 metres would be ideal.
3rd: Aretha Matt Cameron
Good run just got beaten by a better horse on the day. She's a filly only having her third start, so she's only going to get better.
4th: Bavella Leith Innes
I was gone at the 600m mark so I decided to make a bee-line to the outside. Halfway down I thought she was home but just locked up.
5th: Just Zerene Sam Spratt
Top effort. Didn't really travel in the ground. Couple times in the straight I thought she was going to pick them up and sprint past but just struggled in the ground.
7th: Rainbow Dash Jake Bayliss
Did all the donkey work in front. Got a little lost when we straightened up . She'll keep, she's a nice two-year-old.
7th: Aotea Lad Micahel McNab
Doesn't go on a wet track.
8th: Enjoy The Show Jonathan Riddell
Nice horse. Travelled nicely. Ground probably stopped him a touch. Its probably a bit early for him. He's got a future.
Last: Qiji Swordsman Sam Collett
Got badly hampered at the start and failed to recover on the wet track.
