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

When I quickened off the corner, I didn't think I'd get beat but the winner was impressive.

The Buzz Jasmine Fawcett
Race Three: PGG WRIGHTSON/VETMED 1400
Packing Rockstar Jason Waddell
