Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the G1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill.
Glen Boss (Think It Over): “I really have a soft spot for this horse. I got on him over 12 months ago and I said to Kerry ‘just keep sticking with this horse and go about your business. There’s something about this horse and I think he’s going to be a really good horse for you."
“This preparation he’s has come back a lot better horse, more in his mind. He goes to the barriers now very calm, he’s in control of everything he’s doing now."
Think It Over winning the George Ryder
Hugh Bowman (Kolding): “No luck.”
Nash Rawiller (Avilius): “Super run. Hit the line really well. If the track was heavy he wins.”
James McDonald (Dreamforce): “Disappointing to lose by that margin. Tried his guts out.”
Josh Parr (Samadoubt): “Great run from him. He’s close to being back to his best.”
Sam Clipperton (Star Of The Seas): “I had a lovely run from the barrier. Quickened from the 400m to the 200m and then that was it.”
Jason Collett (Gem Song): “Just a bit keen from the mid-section. Loomed but just told late.”
Rachel King (Cascadian): “Massive run. Will only improve from it.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Dalasan): “Good run. We just got momentum lost when we hit a flat spot and I got him up and going when he had no room so he ran well.”
Tim Clark (Dawn Passage): “He was disappointing.”
John Allen (Junipal): “Only fair but will take a lot of improvement from it.”
Regan Bayliss (Mizzy): “She needs to get back on top of the ground.”
Tommy Berry (Funstar): “The race wasn’t run to suit. They went very quick early which had her off the bit and then they pulled up mid-race then sprinted home quick. Her run was credible.”
