The Rising Foundation Autumn Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites


After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.

Race 1: VODAFONE EVENTS CENTRE 2400

Vee Cece Taiki Yanagida

Won

Race 2: SKYCITY AUCKLAND 1400

Wild Like Donavan Mansour

Very immature. About four months away from showing his best.

Race 3: BEKO APPLIANCES 1400

Monaco Trudy Thornton

Huge effort. He's just feeling his joints a little, and he'll probably be put aside until next summer.

Race 4: 100% APPLIANCES 2YO 1300

Rainbow Dash Kelly Myers

Won

Race 5: ELECTROLUX SPRINT

Rikki Tikki Tavi Sam Spratt

A honest run. I thought we were going to go past them when we joined the leaders, but lacked that last finishing bit.

Race 6: VECTOR WERO WHITEWATER PARK 1200

Walkin' By Donavan Monsour

Won

Race 7: BEKO APPLIANCES 3YO MILE

Jip Jip Rock Trudy Thornton

I thought I could have won it in the room, the winner was laying over me throughout.

Race 8: WESTINGHOUSE MILE

Tightlign Sam Spratt

Traveled in behind nicely, got a nice trip but when we straightened up never kicked on. Tried to bore out a fraction too. A little disappointing.

Race 9: THE RISING FOUNDATION 1400

Reevederci Michael Coleman

Nice run. Got back on slow pace but hit the line nicely.
