Jockey Quotes - Sydney Cup

Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the $2m Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m) at Royal Randwick.

Ron Stewart (Selino): “He was a tough ride but it kept unfolding nicely for us. It certainly wasn’t easy, he was quite strong throughout, but I could see that in his replays, he has done that in the past, but when I pulled out down the side with about 1000m to go I still had plenty of horse there and I thought okay we have no weight on our back - catch me if you can.”

“Knowing Randwick really well I was a bit concerned that I had got going a little bit early especially sliding up that rise but I had so much horse under me with the light load. The horse was coming doggedly that last 50m, I wouldn’t say I held my breath but I was yelling as loud as I could, and at the end of the day we got the job done.”

Selino winning the Sydney Cup

Hugh Bowman (The Chosen One): “A better draw would have helped but beaten on his merits.”

James McDonald (Southern France): “Just whacked away. Good run.”

Brenton Avdulla (Sound): “He tried hard. Had a lovely run, followed the winner, just wasn’t good enough.”

Glen Boss (Chapada): “Didn’t run the trip.”

Craig Williams (Miami Bound): “She did an amazing job. Under the circumstances from the bad barrier in a slow, stop, start affair and stayed on really well. Gallant third.”

Robbie Dolan (Spirit Ridge): “Probably best at 2000m, blinkers on.”

Tim Clark (Hush Writer): “Wide the entire, probably doesn’t stay the trip but that run doesn’t help.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Favorite Moon): “Just pulled at stages during the race.”

Andrew Adkins (Rondinella): “Huge effort. Beaten by a better one on the day. Hit the line exceptionally well.”

Rachel King (She's Ideel): “Really good run over this trip for the first time. Got held up around the turn.”

Damien Thornton (Realm Of Flowers): “Ran good. Got shuffled too far back on the corner when the race changed complexion.”

Kathy O'Hara (Sacramento): “He was a little on the bridle. Suggestion to take the blinkers off over that trip.”

Ben Thompson (Good Idea): “He was just too aggressive through the run. Found a nice spot but even though covered up, his staying ability had him stick on but lacked a sprint.”
