Jockey Quotes - Metropolitan

Close finishes were the order of the day and in another one Patrick Erin gave Chris Waller a third Metropolitan. Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts in the Group 1 Heineken 3 Metropolitan Handicap (2400m) at Royal Randwick.

Corey Brown (Patrick Erin): There wasn’t any speed on paper so I thought we would settle midfield but we kept getting shuffled right back and was probably worse than midfield but once the runs appeared in the straight with no weight on his back he actually picked up and lengthened really well.”

“Obviously I already have a Melbourne Cup ride but I would love to partner this horse all the way to the cup, he is a lovely horse, the owners have obviously travelled over from New Zealand and they deserve a big win like this.”


Patrick Erin takes out the Group 1 Metropolitan Handicap at Royal Randwick

Tye Angland (Auvray): “He went well, he was strong late, a muddling run race, got shuffled back at around the 1000m, where I probably needed to be getting that cheap run into it, I just needed to be that one pair closer.”

Brenton Avdulla (Big Duke): “Forget he went round, we got back they progressively just got slower and slower.”

Hugh Bowman (Libran): “Ran a beautiful race, just a long way back from the draw, the horse ran as well as he could.”

James McDonald (Wall Of Fire): “He’s gone alright, just a bit ring-rusty off such a long lay-off.”

Tim Clark (Sedanzer): “Brave effort, she just never rested throughout the race on the back of a slow tempo, it just took her finish away a little bit.”

Michael Dee (Midterm): “Great run, he flashed home and didn’t get beat too far, tempo of the race hurt us.”

Dean Holland (Miss Admiration): “The best I could sort of do was three wide with cover, still stuck on well to the line.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Brimham Rocks): “Good run, we just slid forward from the barrier to just offset that wide gate, he got into a nice rhythm and he was the winner until the last three strides, great effort by my horse.”

Dean Yendall (Sin To Win): “Got caught wide throughout, but really made no impact.”

Jay Ford (The Lord Mayor): “He ran well under the circumstances, the pace was muddling, got pulling so I let him stride to the front, probably wasn’t ideal, but he stuck to his guns.”

Rachel King (Nettoyer): “Not a bad run, just hard to make up that much ground.”

Jye McNeil (Sikandarabad): “Terrific run, I thought one stage he was going to be good enough to win, but they got over the top of him in the last stride, he chased really hard.”

Craig Williams (High Bridge): “I was really impressed with his performance, he went fantastic, there’s a really nice race for him during the Spring carnival.”

Andrew Adkins (Opposition): “Had to go back from the wide barrier, finished his last 150m really well, he did a nice job.”
