Six wins

* Damian Lane (two on Humidor, two wins on Tosen Stardom, Jon Snow, The Mission)

Lane on Jon Snow before the $2.1 million Australian Derby:

“He’s got a lot of talent. There’s a lot of good form out of the New Zealand Derby. He couldn’t have impressed me any more,” he said.

“As we know most of them (New Zealand horses) handle the wet track and they are always rock-hard fit so it takes them a long way.”
