Jockey Quotes - Surround Stakes

Probabeel and Funstar swept from the back to fight out the $500,000 Heineken 3 G1 Surround Stakes, with the Kiwi filly getting the verdict.

This is what the beaten jockeys had to say:

Opie Bosson (Probabeel): “She had to do it the hard way. She is just so much stronger this time in. She is an amazing filly."  

“I just got myself into a little bit of a pocket and hit a bit of a flat spot. I’m just lucky enough that this filly was good enough to get me out of it. Otherwise I didn’t want to be coming back in that’s for sure. Just turning in she lost it until we straightened up.”

It was Probabeel's Surround

Hugh Bowman (Flit): "I was caught wide but my take on it is that she lost that speed second up. I was hoping to win but I’m not disappointed with her."

Kerrin McEvoy (Lyre): "Good effort. I was able to use her draw and get a good spot behind the speed. She travelled nicely and picked up like a winner at the furlong but she just levelled out in the last little bit. A good run."

Rachel King (Kiamichi): "Didn’t quite run up to her first up attempt, but back on a dry track she finds it a bit harder."

James McDonald (Funstar): "Absolutely superb the way she has come back. I can’t wait for her next run."

Brenton Avdulla (Missile Mantra): "She was terrific. Back on track now."

Glen Boss (Xilong): "She was very good this girl, first up over 1400m after missing a run. I got in the right spot and I thought she was very strong through the line to finish just behind two very good fillies."

Christian Reith (Akari): "Much better on top of the ground. From a good draw next start she’s right in the finish."

Tim Clark (Heart Of The Oak): "She ran okay."

Josh Parr (Saas Fee): "It turned into a nightmare. I ended up with a nice run early but her tractability wasn’t all that good. It turned into a disaster."

Andrew Adkins (Aspect Ratio): "She was okay. She was a little bit on the fresh side and had a blow pulling up. She’ll be better over further."
