Jockey Quotes - Iron Jack Golden Eagle

Triumph for Godolphin trainer James Cummings and a huge day for jockey Koby Jennings as this year's ATC Oaks winner Colette claimed the $7.5m Iron Jack Golden Eagle (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Find out what the jockeys had to say after the race.

Koby Jennings (Colette): “She is the hardest trying horse I’ve ever sat on. I’m lost for words. I’m glad to get the job done.

“If you told me to look at the photo I couldn’t do it. Everybody looked at me and said I think you’ve won. I don’t really know how to put it all in.”

“We discussed a couple of different scenarios. That was one of them. I let the horse outside me go to get clear air around me. Some horses weren’t going to take me into the race as much as I wanted to. I let her do her own thing.”

Colette wins the Iron Jack Golden Eagle

Tom Sherry (Icebath): “Massive effort again. On the quick backup. Just got held up half a stride at the top of the straight. She let down strong again.”

Tim Clark (Dawn Passage): “He ran so well. Very proud of his effort. Thought I was the winner at the 300m. Wasn’t to be. He’s put in a blinder.”

Sam Clipperton (All Saints' Eve): “Super run. She is so lightly raced and to perform like that shows she will be a good horse in the making.”

James Innes (Bottega): “I kept him a nice rhythm, happy to be three wide with cover. The horse ran as well as he could. If the track was a little bit better as it took that sprint out of him. He slowly picked up.”

Josh Parr (Superstorm): “Terrific effort. Got out of my ground as he doesn’t have any tactical speed. Another 100m he wins the race.”

Ryan Maloney (Alligator Blood): “In a nice spot. Travelled really well. As soon as I let his head go his wheels were spinning.”

Regan Bayliss (Brandenburg): “We were three deep with cover. Cruised into it like the winner but Colette came off our back and was too good.”

Brenton Avdulla (Riodini): “He gave me a really good ride. Just struggled in the heavy.”

Glyn Schofield (Windstorm): “Didn’t handle the ground.”

Robbie Dolan (Reloaded): “Not the best day to be missing the kick. Was too heavy. Couldn’t make up ground.”

Kathy O'Hara (Just Thinkin'): “Just found the track too wet for him today.”

Keagan Latham (Criaderas): “There was a mishap at the barriers but a creditable run. Don’t think he handled the ground. At 2000m he’ll be a serious horse.”

Rachel King (Flit): “A bad barrier.”

Tommy Berry (Funstar): “Surprisingly she really struggled in the ground. We got across comfortably and had a nice easy time midrace. I was in trouble before the corner.”

Jay Ford (Subpoenaed): “Soft draw actually worked against us. Didn’t like being cluttered up in the field. Conditions too wet for her.”

Jason Collett (Emeralds): “When that rain came it wasn’t as effective as last start.”

Nash Rawiller (Sierra Sue): “She just didn’t handle the ground when I let her go. Came through like the winner. Got there a fraction soon but she didn’t handle it.”
