Here are comments from the jockeys in the Bonecrusher NZ Stakes.
1st - Melody Belle - Troy Harris - She just showed her class. Too good in the end after getting a decent bump turning in. She then got a clear run and hit the line in style.
2nd - Avantage - Opie Bosson - She had a nice run and tried her heart out. Just a pity she ran into Melody Belle.
3rd - Tiptronic - Craig Grylls - Great run. The plan was to lead. He travelled pretty good in front. Turning in I was still going pretty good. A couple of pretty good horses have beaten him so he hasn't disgraced himself.
4th - Beauden - Ryan Elliot - Perfect trip. Came out at the right time. Just glad he's up there with them.
5th - Royal Performer - Jonathan Riddell - From the gate I've had to go back. I got inside of Melody Belle and managed to push her out of the way. He's gone a really good race. A spot or two handier would have been better.
6th - Concert Hall - Vinnie Colgan - Really happy with her run. She wasn't beaten by much. She can't sprint like those other horses.
7th - On The Rocks - Samantha Collett - He just wasn't on his game today. Well and truly beaten unfortunately.
Last - Paisley Park - Wiremu Pinn - Just not quite up to WFA.
