Invincible Gem sat outside of Daysee Doom but proved too strong at the finish in a leader dominated race.
Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 2 Jim Beam Emancipation Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens.
Corey Brown (Invincible Gem): “She didn’t have it easy, I had to work hard for the first two furlongs. I was rapt when young Andrew Adkins fell over to the fence and Dyslexia hovered around there for a while, but once we got to the front we did slow up noticeably but we’d done some work getting there. So it was was a good effort.”
Invincible Gem wins again for Corey Brown
Andrew Adkins (Daysee Doom): “She ran really well to run second. I had to do a little work early but the fence was the right place to be in the first couple of races. She relaxed when she got there but the winner had the drop on us.”
Tommy Berry (Noire): “She’s done a great job. I felt the winner when I came off their backs. You can’t pick up the leaders for some reason.”
Tim Clark (Sedanzer): “It was an improved performance. Now she’s getting a bit older a set of Blinkers might be what’s needed to extract a bit more out of her.”
Jason Collett (Princess Posh): “She struggled. The wheels were spinning a long way out.”
Brenton Avdulla (Dyslexic): “She’s racing well but just can’t accelerate on the ground. She just wants a dry surface.”
Craig Williams (Insensata): “She didn’t get through today’s track conditions.”
