Jockey Quotes - Carbine Club Stakes

Linsday Park strikes early on Day 1 of The Championships with Muraaqueb prevailing in race two.

Find out what the jockeys made of their horses’ runs in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick.

Damien Oliver (Muraaqueb): “He ran really well in Melbourne in some of the better races and without much luck from wider draws.

“Today we had a lovely run and David (Hayes) was pretty keen on his chances so he has turned out a good judge. It’s nice to get one early in the day and hopefully can get some more.”


Muraaqueb proves too strong in the Carbine Club Stakes at Royal Randwick

Christian Reith (Dissolution): “Solid again today, he’s getting stronger and stronger each start that Brad’s [Widdup] had him. He gave his absolute all and just found one a little bit better who had a better run in the race. He’s not far off getting one of these good ones.”

Blake Shinn (Holy Snow): “It was a great run, just with the 59kg I was momentarily held up on the inside of Icon Of Dubai and Beau Geste, he hit the line nicely, I think he’ll appreciate further and he is a very nice horse.”

Mark Zahra (Villermont): “Had every chance.”

Tye Angland (Assimilate): “From the gate we had to go back, that’s sort of his pattern anyway. They just went too slow, sprinted off the corner and he was left flat-footed.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Beau Geste): “Had a nice trailing spot, he just didn’t settle 100% and then was a bit one-paced coming home.”

Brenton Avdulla (Sambro): “Very stiff, he would have finished right there.”

Tim Clark (Sondelon): “I thought he did a really good job, still in his first preparation he’s got good upside.”

Zac Purton (Icon Of Dubai): “It was an honest effort.”

Michael Walker (Charlie Chap): “Outclassed.”

Glyn Schofield (Think Straight): “He over-raced in a slowly run race but there’s an engine there.”
