We spoke to jockeys competing in the Sistema Stakes to get their comments on how the race went.
1st: Cool Aza Beel Opie Bosson
When he got challenged, he put his head down and had a good crack. A good win.
2nd: Vernazza Leith Innes
Super run. Had the drop on the winner but he was too good. She'll be a nice horse next season.
3rd: Kelly Renee Craig Grylls
Had a nice run three back, travelled good throughout. First two kicked away but she's a tough filly. The 1400 at Awapuni will suit her.
4th: Play That Song Sam Collett
Jumped only fair and went back but ran home really well.
5th: Sanpper Cameron Lammas
He over raced a little but he went good.
6th: Tivaan Warrior Andrew Calder
Very happy with the run. Did a bit of work early but got an easy lead when she got there but stuck to her guns. Strong run.
7th: Laced With Gold Sam Spratt
She settled nicely, hung a little but stuck on well. Feeling the pinch.
Last: Only Words Matt Cameron
Shouldn't have been in the race.
