Jockey Quotes - Tea Rose Stakes

A thrilling finish with three classy fillies hitting the line together!

Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 2 Darley Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick.

James McDonald (Funstar): “Good filly. She did a lot wrong today, the speed was against us through the middle stages, they pulled back to a walk, she got over racing and I was just lucky that I was on a very, very good filly.

“She is a filly going places. If we can ride her back from a stronger tempo we will see the result.

“I was surprised at the lack of tempo and I was more surprised that she still won because she wasn’t entitled to.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Probabeel): “Really good run, a good last furlong, obviously another two or three hops and she gets them. She goes out to the mile now for the Flight Stakes and it’s going to be a great race for her.”

Tommy Berry (Libertini): “Gallant run, we had a really good run in transit, got to back the speed off mid-race, I thought I had the race pretty much won at the 100m, she probably had enough, but she tries so hard she fought them off until the 50m. She was beaten by two very good fillies.”

Josh Parr (Anaheed): “The seven furlongs might be just a little bit of stretch at this level.”

Brenton Avdulla (Let It Pour): “She had a gun run, ended up on the back of the winner until the corner, but I just think she might have come to the end of her preparation.”

Glyn Schofield (Subpoenaed): “Not much went right, pace was really slow and it slackened off even further, caught a heel when the grey horse in front of me popped out, got a bump at the top of the straight, but she kept finding the line well.

Luke Currie (Aspect Ratio): “Travelled up nice behind them, probably just a bit sharp for her, she’s ready to go out in trip now.”

Adam Hyeronimus (St Covet's Spirit): “She’s definitely up to them, but they just went from one extreme to the other with the speed and it just got her a bit keen and forced her wide.”

Nash Rawiller (Emeralds): “Unfortunately she didn’t jump too well and we got a nasty check early and we ended up out of our ground, but she worked home well.”
