Jockey Comments: Karaka Million 2YO

We spoke to jockeys competing in the Karaka Million 2YO to get their comments on how the race went.


1st: Cool Aza Beel Opie Bosson

Got a beautiful run. Probably over-raced a little in the middle stages but had a very good kick.


2nd: Play That Song James McDonald

Went really good. Loomed up to win, just beaten by a better horse on the day.


3rd: Taroni Mick Dee

Good run. Little slow away but run worked out. She got home well.


4th: Bordeaux Le Rouge Craig Grylls

Great run. Settled behind midfield, got all the nice runs through and he's hit the line hard. Probably six months away. He's a really nice horse.


5th: Dragon Queen Matt Cameron

Top run. Just needed the rub of the green in the straight. Hit the line well.


6th: Amor Fati Lynsey Satherley

She tried really hard. Good run from her.


7th: De La Terre Ryan Elliot

Had to go back from the wide draw, worked through the middle up the straight and changed ground three times. She's done well.


8th: Helsinki Michael Coleman

Nice run but lacks experience.


9th: Trident Vinnie Colgan

Nice run. Probably ready for a spell.


10th: Tivaan Warrior Andrew Calder

She was in a nice position early. Followed the winner, pushed a little wide at the 700m just put her off balance. She's still raw, so she will be better for the run.


11th: Not An Option Leith Innes

He got checked half way down the straight. Maybe a better horse left handed.


12th: Lovebug Sam Spratt

Was a fraction slow but got to the lead easy, travelling good on the corner but got out-sprinted.


Last: Hasstobemagic Danielle Johnson

Disappointing run. Probably feeling the track.
