Victoria Derby – what the jockeys said

VICTORIA DERBY JOCKEYS COMMENTS

Glyn Schofield (Prized Icon) 1st : “After I won the Champagne (Stakes) on him as a two-year-old, I said to James (Cummings), this is a Derby horse, he’ll win the Derby, but he wasn’t so sure about that. Horses give you that impression when you ride them and he certainly did that.”

Zac Purton (Sacred Elixir) 2nd : “He raced alright. He had his chance.”

Dwayne Dunn (Inference) 3rd : “He went super. I had a super run in the race from the barrier. Everything was going nicely until the top of the straight. So Si Bon extended better than me and pushed me back in behind them and I just got blocked again at the 200 metres so it was a super effort.”

Hugh Bowman (So Si Bon) 4th : “He’s a very exciting horse but just lacking that maturity at the moment. I didn’t give him the best ride and it told late but he’s a good horse for the future.”

Tommy Berry (Swear) 5th : “He’s done well at the end of the day. He was caught wide early, we got in and had a nice run from there on but he got flushed out early as well. It was a good effort.”

Stephen Baster (Hollywood Mo) 6th : “He ran very well. Sacred Elixir sort of pushed us around where he wanted to, but he ran really well.”

Mark Zahra (Rocketeer) 7th : “He had a beautiful run, he just didn’t end up staying.”

Craig Williams (Highlad) 8th : “Murray’s done a great job with him. He didn’t have the horse pulling but I just felt the gear he had on today, he was just a bit reluctant to stretch out. He hung out going around the first turn, but he really stayed on nicely up the home straight.”

Nicholas Hall (Beach Life) 9th : “He’s just a tired horse, they’re going to put him out.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Silvera) 10th : “He got stirred up and the occasion got to him.”

Ben Melham (Tumultuous) 11th : “He jumped well and landed close but I just reckon he wants the jar out of the track to see his best.”

Joao Moreira (Wine Bush) 12th : “He’s a very inexperienced type of horse. He’s still far away from being ready to win races like this.”

Craig Newitt (Captain Duffy) 13th : “We overraced a little bit early but settled midrace. He just raced a bit flat.”

James McDonald (Kent) 14th : “I got a lovely run, he just didn’t stay the trip.”

Blake Shinn (All Out Of Love) 15th : “The horse just failed to stay.”

Steven Arnold (Morvada) 16th : “He went too hard.”
