Jockey Quotes - Kingston Town Stakes

Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 3 The Agency Real Estate Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick.

Kerrin McEvoy (Finche): “Great to have these famous colours here and winning races in Australia. He’s a lovely big horse. Today, second up, he was able to get a nice trail and get out when we wanted to. Chris said just build him up and give him a nice last 600m which we were able to do and it feels like he will stay all day.

“He’s got a big action, that’s for sure, like a big giraffe but he doesn’t gallop like one. He is a nice big lad and covers the ground well and enjoyed the big track today.”

Adam Hyeronimus (Stampede): “It was good that he drew wide as I was able to work across at my own leisure. He had a nice run throughout, he fought hard, but they just got the better of him late.”

Jay Ford (Shraaoh): “He’s poking along alright, he’ll improve off the back of that. I think his next run third up will give you a better indication of where he is at.”

Josh Parr (Patrick Erin): “He didn’t finish in the competition at all.”

Andrew Adkins (Sir Charles Road): “He ran nice, finished the race off nicely, looking for further, very happy.”

Sam Clipperton (Carzoff): “He’s a model of consistency, he ran his usual honest race. Thought I might have been the winner at the 300m, but the other two just had a little bit of class on him on the day and maybe a bit of fitness as well. He’ll be cherry ripe next time out.”

Mark Zahra (Grey Lion): “He ran super, the horse is back on track, he hit the line well.”

Nash Rawiller (Big Duke): “He worked home really well, just found it very tough to get into the race from back where he was. He’s a horse I’d be keeping an eye on for later in this preparation.”

James McDonald (Come Play With Me): “He went great, he was a little on the fresh side. He just hopped at the start, which put him on the backfoot. He got into a nice enough position and he finished off well.”

Glyn Schofield (Haripour): “He held the back of the winner, just failed to find a kick, he was strong to the line still.”

James Innes Jnr (Fabrizio): “The plan was to get cover, but that didn’t work out. In saying that, I thought sitting off the leader Adam [Hyeronimus] set nice tempo and it was comfortable for everyone. The winner and the second horse were inside and in front of him, so he was entitled to finish off better than he did.”

Luke Currie (Maurus): “Out the back and he was a bit disinterested, he was just too far back.”

Glen Boss (Girl Tuesday): “She was outstanding, obviously the draw dictated where we were and ended up a mile out of the race. Her closing sectionals especially her last 600m would have been very good.”

Tommy Berry (Scarlet Dream): “The field sort of got away from me at the corner and I got stuck behind a bit of traffic, but her last 150m was strong, she’s looking for 2400m and is in for a good preparation.”

Brenton Avdulla (Supernova): “He travelled really well, would just have liked to see him do a little bit more late.”

Jason Collett (Doukhan): “I wasn’t happy with the way he felt so I eased him out of it.”
