The first two-year-old race of the season has been run and won.
Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 3 Keeneland Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) at Royal Randwick.
Josh Parr (Every Rose): “I think I am one of many that loves the Gimcrack and the Breeders Plate. It’s so exciting, this is the first time that the public has seen all of these horses on race day and I’m very pleased to have got on the fastest one today.
“I found the front. I had to urge her slightly to find the front but once I found the fence she was very tractable, she travelled really well.
“She is well beyond her years as far as maturity is concerned. Her acceleration just as we topped the hill was very good and she toughed it right out. God love her!”

Tommy Berry (Ticket To Ride): “She’s very eye catching, she’s a beautiful filly, gave me a lovely ride. I was very wide from the barrier so I had to relinquish that spot and set her a bit of a task, she went well.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Stellar Pauline): “Good run, she’s come on well from the trial, a little bit of buffeting on the corner which didn’t help her, but she balanced up again and hit the line nicely.”
Rachel King (Ashra Jahre): “Just got very lost from the wide gate, but the experience would have done her the world of good.
Brenton Avdulla (Fall On A Star): “I just think she’s come to the end of her preparation, she’s a nice filly going forward though.”
Nash Rawiller (In Flanders): “Nice run, she’s obviously going to improve with today’s outing, but she’s got a good deal of ability and should train on. Nice filly.”
Glen Boss (Miss Jay Fox): “Just didn’t cope with the pressure, folded in the end.”
Hugh Bowman (Orpheum): “She jumped in the air at the start which forced my hand on how to ride her, she ran really well, exciting filly.”
Tim Clark (Rose Sauvage): “Raced very greenly in amongst them, probably had enough. She’ll be a nice filly next time.”
Glyn Schofield (Shahi): “She jumped well followed the winner, had no real answer for it in the straight.”
Jason Collett (Super One Susie): “She over-raced the first half of the race, she ran on late which made for a good run.”
Adam Hyeronimus (Undeniable): “She’s still very green.”
