Jockey Quotes - Spring Champion Stakes

It was a race of firsts with Maid Of Heaven giving trainer Mark Newnham and jockey Rachel King maiden Group One wins.

Rachel King (Maid Of Heaven): “It’s amazing. I’m a bit lost for words. All credit to Mark (Newnham) and his team. We thought we were both in with a chance of getting our first Group One last weekend but we managed to do it this weekend. It couldn’t have happened for a better trainer. I am rapt.”

“She ran last week in the Flight Stakes and she didn’t have any luck. Mark thought she didn’t get a chance to properly extend herself so we’ll put her in again. I picked up the ride on Wednesday and couldn’t of been happier.”


Maid Of Heaven getting past Aramayo

Tim Clark (Thinkin' Big): “Ran well. Outside leader second up at 2000m on a soft track might have taken it’s toll but still proud of his effort.”

James McDonald (Tarka): “He’s went good. Just come to the end of his campaign. Blinkers backfired a little bit he was very keen the whole way but he has come a long way in a short time.”

Tommy Berry (Irukandji): “He doesn’t give himself a chance. He was too keen early. I was going to try and take a sit with him today but he didn’t allow us to do that so we’re left asking plenty of questions.”  

Tye Angland (Aramayo): “He was good. Thought I was the winner on a couple of occasions but just ran out of gas. Soft track got the  better of him but he ran well.”  

Damien Oliver (Dealmaker): “I thought he ran really well I just wasn’t able to get into a position where he could really build his momentum coming to the turn. Still thought he ran really well with a chequered path. With more room I’m sure he would have finished much closer.”

Regan Bayliss (Mickey Blue Eyes): “Really positive run. He relaxed beautifully for me today. I just think that he has such a good turn of foot that the heavy track took it out of him. Looking forward to getting him back in dry tracks in Melbourne.”

Jason Collett (Visao): “No luck in the run. Caught wide. Went forward, but was never comfortable.”

Sam Weatherley (Purple Sector): “Be surprised if there isn’t something wrong with him. He travelled beautifully in the one-one till we came to the 600m and it was like he stopped within a stride. We’ll see what happens.”

Corey Brown (Frankely Awesome): “She ran really well but it’s probably a prep too soon. She’s going to make a lovely horse.”

Andrew Adkins (Panzerfaust): “She ran as good as she could. She’s probably just not ready. She will be right next prep and perhaps with a set of blinkers on.”
