Jockey comments from beaten favourites: SkyCity New Year's Day Races

After each race at the SkyCity New Year's Day Races, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.


Race One: SKYCITY 2100

Lochwinnoch Trudy Thornton

Didn't get a great run. I think the horse is a little tired. He's going to go out and have a little break and come back better after that.


Race Two: MAINSTREAM PLUMBING & GASFITTING 1400

Not Usual Litening Matt Cameron

Wasn't a bad run, just pulled a bit at the start and a bit green when I pulled out to get the run. He'll keep.


Race Three: BARNESWOOD FARM ECLIPSE STAKES

Not An Option Leith Innes

Went super. Got beaten by a better horse on the day but will take a lot out of it.


Race Four: VALACHI DOWNS ROYAL STAKES

Two Illicit Vinnie Colgan

Won


Race Five: DUNSTAN FEEDS STAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL

Swords Drawn Opie Bosson

Went up to win the race but got shut out.


Race Six: JAMIESON PARK AUCKLAND GUINEAS

Riodini Sam Collett

Full credit to my horse, he was gallant in defeat. I think he's been beaten by a very smart horse
