Jockey comments from beaten favourites: Avondale Cup & Guineas Day

After each race at the Avondale Cup & Guineas Day Races, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.

Race One: STELLA ARTOIS 1200

Madam Hass Vinnie Colgan

Just over-raced a little, sat outside Opie, the second horse swooped on us pretty quickly but ran on nicely.


Race Two: PAPATOETOE GLASS 1200 Virtuoso Lad Opie Bosson

Won


Race Three: ECOCHILL 1500

Kaipaki Road Danielle Johnson

She got back near last, the race did't change complexion. Maybe some rain would help.


Race Four: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 1600

Iron Eagle Shaun McKay

He's gone well. Probably a month between runs just a bit too long.


Race Five: DUNSTAN FEEDS 1200

Short Fuse Danielle Johnson

She went really well today. She tried hard, probably just came to the end of it at the end. Sam (Spratt) had it easy in front and she's been hard to run down.


Race Six: JAMIESON PARK AVONDALE GUINEAS

Dragon Leap Opie Bosson

Won


Race Seven: JOE MCDONALD AVONDALE CUP

Intrigue Michael Coleman Found the distance too far. An okay run.

Race Eight: AUCKLAND CO-OP TAXIS 2100

River Run Danielle Johnson.

Got back a spot further back. He's still learning but a win isn't far away.
