Queen's Birthday Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites


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

Race One: COCA-COLA HURDLE

El Fernando Shaun Phelan

Ran a good race. The heavy track beat him. He's better on top of the ground.

Race Two: NZB INSURANCE PEARL SERIES RACE

Shoshone Cameron Lammas

Won

Race Three: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 1200

Blood Warrior Vinnie Colgan

Won

Race Four: KS BROWNE HURDLE

Duffers Creek Shaun Fannin

Travelled well throughout. The mistake at the second last cost him running top two.

Race Five: CELEBRATING GLORY DAYS AVONDALE & AUCKLAND CUP VICTORIES 2200

Wicklow Scott Wenn

Didn't intentionally want to lead but travelled really nicely but didn't run too correctly in the home straight being first time right handed.

Race Six: DUNSTAN FEEDS STEEPLECHASE

Suffice To Say Aaron Kuru

Won

Race Seven: MCGREGOR GRANT STEEPLECHASE

He went a good race. I just think the hill got him the last time and struggled but it was a good run from him. He'll push on for Hawke's Bay or Manawatu.

Race Eight: FACEUP – LOW FEES IN REAL ESTATE 2200

Sweet Treat Ryan Elliot

Travelled good, got there a bit early and the sticky track has got to her. Needs rain on the day.

Race Nine: ARC THANKS THEIR PARTNERS & FRIENDS FOR THE PAST SEASON 1600

Paisley Park Sam Collett

Super run. His raciing manners were a lot better today. If this race was run on Saturday with the track being more loose would of helped him more. The winner was tough and he's run his best he could.
