We spoke to jockeys competing in the Mitchell Family Bonecrusher Stakes to get their comments on how the race went.
1st: Riodini Sam Collett
Super effort. Got in a perfect spot and was too good.
2nd: Showoroses Andrew Calder
She ran really well. The 1400m was no issue, we just ran into a pretty smart one in the winner.
3rd: Familia Shaun McKay
She's gone super. She's not a very big horse but she puts in 110% and now she has some black type placing beside her name.
4th: Hasstobegood Sam Weatherley
Should have run second or third but the last 100m, just got tired the last bit.
5th: Rhaegar Craig Grylls
He jumped good and raced keenly being in a fresh state. He's blown up he last 150m and will benefit from the run.
6th: Amal Rose Vinnie Colgan
Really disappointed. Had a nice run on the fence, but struggled up the straight.
7th: Thistle Do Jasmine Fawcett
First time at Ellerslie and will see improvement in him in the future.
Last: Imaready Sam Spratt
Struggled to get there a little bit and stuck three wide. Will appreciate sting out of the ground.
