Jockey Comments | DoubleTree By Hilton Karaka Million 2YO

Here are comments from the jockeys in the DoubleTree By Hilton Karaka Million 2YO that was run here at Ellerslie as part of the New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million.


1st - On The Bubbles - Jonathan Parkes - He's just a super horse and honoured to be able to ride him. A bit nervous from the wide barrier but we got the job done and that's what counts.


2nd - Sneaky Shark - Sam Collett - A super brave run.


3rd - Avonallo - Lisa Allpress - A great run but first and second were just too good.


4th - Sophisticardo - Troy Harris - A massive run. I thought we were half a chance turning in but he's battled on well for fourth.


5th - Brazen Blue - Leith Innes - A super run first time right handed.


6th - Western Springs - Vinnie Colgan - Really happy with my horse. He's more a 1400m 3yo type.


7th - Callissident - Sam Weatherley - A really good run from a green horse. I think she'll be a really good chance at Manawatu.


8th - Millefiori - Danielle Johnson - She just didn't quicken today. Maybe the quick back up was too much for her but she's going to make a really nice late 3yo


9th - Seven Twenty - Wiremu Pinn - Very unlucky. She's gone super.


10th - Follow Your Dreams - Craig Grylls - He just over raced throughout. He's going to make a lovely 3yo.


11th - Brix - Taiki Yanagida - She may have been feeling the ground but she tried hard


12th - Mr Blue Sky - Michael McNab - Not his day today.


13th - Cherokee Warrior - Lynsey Satherley - He did well to get here but he needs to go out now.


Last - Miss Ipanema - Sam Spratt - They just went a bit quick for her. I tried to go forward but they were too quick
