2018 Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic- What the beaten jockeys said

2018 Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic- What the beaten jockeys said:

2nd IN HER TIME Corey Brown  

Ran terrific. I thought I was following the right horses in the run, I was directly behind Redzel, but they were taking me nowhere. I had to wait for the speed to go into the race, went back to the inside and she got into clear air she hit the line solid.

3rd (dead-heat) JUNGLE CAT (IRE) William Buick

Ran great. He’s going to be retired now so it was a good way for him to sign off.

3rd (dead-heat) PIERATA Tommy Berry

Super run. He definitely got a bit lost down the straight and I would have preferred to have drawn the outside. First time down the straight he’s done a good job.

5th REDZEL

Kerrin McEvoy

We ended up getting a trail from the speed horses. The ground might have gone against him a little bit, he gave a good kick, but they whizzed by us the last bit.

6th SPIRIT OF VALOR (USA)

Wayne Lordan

Travelled very well but just levelled out. Might be better around a bend.

7th SPRIGHT

Damien Oliver

She ran well. Had a good run, was making good ground into the straight but she’s just a couple of lengths below those good horses.

8th BRAVE SMASH (JPN)

Craig Williams

I’d love to have it again, he ran really well. Unfortunately I zigged when I should have zagged. The horse I chose to follow didn’t take me into the race and as it was I was where the winner was.

9th KEMENTARI

Glyn Schofield

It was unfortunate Pierata ran across his line at a vital stage.

10th REDKIRK WARRIOR (GB)

Regan Bayliss

Disappointing. Had a lovely run in behind U S Navy Flag, he took us to about the 300m, I got off his back and he travelled up well but he struggled to let down the last 200m.

11th INTELLIGENCE CROSS (USA)

Damian Lane

Travelled well early but couldn’t go with them when they sprinted on the course proper.

12th

INVINCIBLE STAR Stephen Baster

She wasn’t herself today. She’s had a bad day.

13th

U S NAVY FLAG (USA) Ryan Moore

He ran disappointing. He doesn’t like it here for some reason. He hasn’t performed the way he can.

14th

FLEET REVIEW (USA) James McDonald

Not much to add there.
