Jockey Quotes - Frank Packer Plate

Consolation for the Kiwi galloper The Chosen One who had run fourth in the Australian Derby two weeks ago.

Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 3 Cellarbrations Frank Packer Plate (2000m) at Royal Randwick.

Blake Shinn (The Chosen One): “It is a consolation [for the Derby], the prizemoney is significantly less but nonetheless, it’s great to get a winner here at Royal Randwick.

“The Derby was a little bit frustrating. We were the victim of a wide barrier, we had to take him back. I thought his run was arguably the best run in the race and he brought that form here today. We made another searching run on him but we were coming back 400m in trip so I was mindful of that. He did the job nicely, he is a lovely horse.

“I feel getting him to the outside seeing as he isn’t an overly big horse, I think he appreciates that - just giving him some room and giving him that confidence to use his stride.”

The Chosen One wins the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate

Hugh Bowman (Dealmaker): “It was pleasing, a good run.”

Sam Clipperton (Purple Sector): “Very good run, 2000m might just see him out a bit.”

Damian Lane (Fun Fact): “Honest.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Carif): “Just a fair run, would liked to have been closer in the run, but he wasn’t able to get there today.”

Sam Weatherley (Home Win): “Probably didn’t look the best, but he just wants to run a long way further, probably up to 2400m and a fair bit of give in the ground and he’ll be back to his best.”

Adam Hyeronimus (Blast): “No luck.”

Jay Ford (Watch The Cat): “He actually got going late, wants further again.”

Tim Clark (Greysful Glamour): “Plain.”

Brenton Avdulla (House Of Cartier): “She ran terrific, got held up at a crucial time, she did a good job.”

Tommy Berry (Amangiri): “Should have won.”

James McDonald (On The White Turf): “She’s a lovely filly, she’ll make a really good filly in a couple of starts, she’s just learning her caper.”
