Only a couple of lengths covered the mares in the Emancipation and it was Prompt Response holding them off under Damien Oliver.
Find out what the jockeys made of their horses’ runs in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens.
Damien Oliver (Prompt Response): “It’s nice to come up here and get a winner. To do the travel and get the results is great. She was a nice pick up for me.
“She’s a tough mare. She had a pretty soft run up near the lead, I reckon I might have got headed in the straight but she fought back and won.
“She hasn’t quite managed to win a Group 1 yet, but there were some Group 1 mares in that with all the horses that competed in the Coolmore, so it would be nice to see her win a Group 1.”

Michael Dee (Oregon's Day): “Unlucky not to be winning. She just wanted to overdo it a little bit early but once we got cover she came back to me well.”
Corey Brown (Dixie Blossoms): “Just went a bit slow mid-race but she ran super again. The Randwick mile will suit her good.”
Andrew Adkins (Daysee Doom): “Would’ve appreciated the winner’s run. She’s probably not as effective leading. It just switches her on a bit more when she’s got something inside her to carry her into the straight.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Foxplay): “Good run. The winner just dictated the race.”
Mark Zahra (Zanbagh): “She went fair.”
Brenton Avdulla (Eckstein): “Tried hard. They went slow and everything dashed together.”
