Jockey Quotes: Provincial Championships

Find out what the beaten jockeys made of their runs in the Provincial Championships Final.
Tim Clarke (Maryore): “If anything she quickened too well, she got there a bit soon and wanted to have a bit of a look around.”
Kathy O'Hara (Noble Joey): “Good effort from him. Wide gate and big weight told on him in the finish, and a month between runs, but still an honest effort.”
Josh Parr (Better Not Blue): “Terrific effort. Disappointed for a run at the top of the straight and brave to finish second.”
Hugh Bowman (Ziganui): “Good run.”
James Doyle (Budderoo Knight): “Just felt a bit flat. Didn’t travel that great and I was never in my comfort zone.”
Blake Shinn (Calabasas): “Horse ran credibly and acquitted himself really well."
Jason Collett (Pacific Reign): “Unable to control things like last start. Didn’t get his own way and unable to run on.”
Corey Brown (Virgilio): “Started to go backwards around the 800m. Didn’t punish him but he was a beaten horse a long way out.”
Chad Lever (Pomelo): “She was okay. She was probably a bit quiet today compared to what she is normally like but she travelled strong enough through the run, like she normally does, but didn’t have that finish today. May have come to the end of it.”
Christian Reith (Dream Lane): “Bit disappointing today. Back to the drawing board.”
Tommy Berry (Clevedon Bay): “Never travelled today. Don’t think she appreciated that shifting surface.”
Jay Ford (Heavenly Anna): “She had a good run. She was honest and boxed on well.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Princess Posh): “We just got a little bit skittled around the corner and held up in the early part of the straight. Nice enough run without having a lot of luck.”
Damian Lane (Reiby Rampart): “Raced a little bit handier than I would have liked, a little bit keen, and didn’t finish it off.”
Damien Oliver (Shazee Lee): “I thought she ran really well. She just wanted to get going a bit midrace but she ran well.”
