Pre-race comments from:

St Simon Racing– “My runner is in good nick and I am hoping for a good run. Good luck to all the other competitors.        ”  

Northern Light Acres – “Even though we finished last in the first race, I liked the way he ran. I think we just went a little to fast at the beginning and had nothing left for the finish. We’ll be trying a different strategy for the final.”

Angel’s Flight – “He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

Priceless Speedsters – “Just racing Butterfly Kiss for experience and maybe a little luck against the muddies on a dry track we can place. However Captain is a technician and will get the best out of Crusade with Kumbaya finishing close second.

doneill – “Looking forward to the race. First cup for me in a long time. Not expecting anything. Top 5 would be a decent start to cup racing again.”

Heathfield Turf – Looking for a decent run, if we can get somewhere near fit. I predict the winner to come from one of the three more experienced stables…with the rest battling for minor placings .. (although, if you’ve seen my tipping at Gran, you’ll know that could be the kiss of death !!). Happy racing all.”

trouble racing – “Jockeys probably hold the key to this one. “Hoping for the best expecting the worse.”
