After each race at the Summer Raceday, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race One: AUCKLAND CO-OP TAXIS 1200
Madam Haas Ryan Elliot
Pulled too hard, ran out of energy.
Race Two: SWISS DELI 1200
Born Dragon Sam Spratt
Track too firm for him.
Race Three: Barfoot And Thompson 1500
Hasstobegood Vinnie Colgan
Got a nice trip, followed the winner. Beaten by a better horse on the day.
Race Four: NZB INSURANCE PEARL SERIES RACE 1200
Helsinki Lisa Allpress
Great run. Just a bit handier than I would have liked. Didn't have an ideal run around the bend but fought gamely.

Lincoln King Jason Waddell
Race Six: MONSTAVISION 2100
Tiptronic Chelsea Burdan
Race Seven: PEGASUS EQUINE 1400

Felt the ground a bit.
