Auckland Thoroughbred Racing
Here are comments from the jockeys in the Group 1 Cambridge Stud Zabeel Classic
1st – Campionessa – Opie Bosson
She got a dream run through out. Made some luck to push out down the straight. A bloody good effort to get stopped in her tracks and pick herself up to win like she did.
2nd –No Compromise – Ryan Elliot
Beautiful trip and picked up well but was a little dour last bit and the winner picked up better.
3rd –Aquacade – Vinnie Colgan
Got a beautiful trip, followed Ryan across the top and stuck on.
4th –Mazzolino – Sam Spratt
Gutsy run. Thought I was going to run third. Can’t complain it was good run.
5th –One Bold Cat – Craig Grylls
Great run. First time weight-for-age. Had to go back from wide draw.  He settled nice on a slow speed but rattled home for a quick last 600 metres.
6th – Kelly Coe – Matthew Cameron
Super run just ran out of steam the last 100 metres. Did all the donkey work and stuck on well.
7th – Prise De Fer – Blake Shinn
He run well. They just ran a little slow for him where he was positioned but he’s ticking over nicely.
8th – Mali Ston- Sam Weatherley
Desperately unlucky. Not sure he wins but should of run a clear third.
9th – Platinum Invader – Jonathan Riddell
Got a nice run. Had to take inside run where I didn’t want to go but he’s gone through the line good. A great run.
10th – Aegon- Michael McNab
Disappointing run.
Last –Gino Severini – Kozzi Asano
Tried hard.
