Jockey Comments: Sistema Stakes

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.
