Another race record broken by the two-year-olds, this time by the Victorian colt Dubious who bettered Performer's mark from a year ago.
Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts in the Group 3 Arrowfield Breeders’ Plate (1000m) at Royal Randwick.
Michael Walker (Dubious): “He was strong to the line, he was well educated, gave me a really nice feel.”
“Only a little horse, but has a big horse’s action, the further he goes the better he is going to get.”
Dubious arrives in time to win the Breeders’ Plate at Royal Randwick
James McDonald (Autocratic): “He’s a lovely horse, he’s just going to improve throughout his 2YO career, he’ll be one to watch when they get up to 1400m.”
Glyn Schofield (Chismoso): “He was a bit lost early on, but he certainly hit the line well.”
Tye Angland (Covert Ops): “Really good run, obviously just got picked up on the line, he’s got a very sensible race brain, little horse but gutsy effort.”
Tommy Berry (Exceed The Stars): “He was a little bit wide in the run, but the winner was inside of us. He travelled up well around the bend, but he just petered out of it late. Might need a bit more time.”
Tim Clark (Fiery Red): “Solid performance, he’s a nice enough horse, he’ll be better next time in.”
Brenton Avdulla (Head On): “He tried hard, he ran a good honest race.”
Mark Zahra (King's Champ): “He was a bit of a handful and from the wide gate had no favours.”
Hugh Bowman (Krameric): “Ran a credible race, we thought he would run well and he did.”
Adrian Layt (Redicon): “Good run, just has to learn to jump, when he does that, he’ll be right.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Rome): “Really happy with him, settled back from the widish gate and made up nice ground.”
Andrew Adkins (Vaporizing): “Had a good run in transit, followed the right horse, I think he will be better at 1200m and beyond.”
