Here are comments from the jockeys in the Mainland Auckland Futurity Stakes.
1st - Atullibigeal - Andrew Calder - Wow. He was really smart today. He enjoyed the better track today and has shown a really good turn of foot but it was good to see him take a sit today. He was real impressive.
2nd - Lady Maroal - Michael McNab - She went really good. Got a nice run with cover. The winner was just a bit too good today.
3rd - There You Go - Taiki Yanagida - She was really good. Did everything perfect, just needed more ground.
4th - Mustang Valley - Vinnie Colgan - She's a very nice filly. Those two experienced horses just away from us. She's still a bit green but she's a lovely filly.
5th - Samarkand - Craig Grylls - Sat outside the leader. He seemed a little one paced and I don't know if he wants it much wetter than it was.
6th - Te Poropiti - Sam Collett -He's hit the line really well. Looking to run over a mile plus as a 3yo now.
7th - Me Liberez - Masa Hashazume - He went a good race. Just over-raced in the middle stages a bit but it was still a tough run .
8th - King Mondo - Sam Weatherley - Next year he'll be a nice horse.
9th - Lasers Fury - He flew the gates from barrier 3. Would have preferred to get cover but used is barrier speed to put himself in the race. He'll keep for the summer. Didn't really see out the 1400m.
Last - Calvetto - Ashvin Goindasamy - Very disappointing. Never really travelled well.
