Jockey Notes


Michael Cahill - Burning Passion - 24/07/2017

"He showed good speed out of the gate and had a nice run in transit just behind the lead. When the one came at him at the op of the straight, he went through them in pretty good style. However, it was when i put him under full pressure and hit him with the whip a couple of times, he pu the race beyond a doubt. It was a pretty strong win."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - ENVY OF ALL - 7/6/2017

"A very nice filly, quiet and relaxed today. Jumped very well and went straight to the front. She was relaxed and focussed and when I asked for an effort she accelerated very quickly. A very good finish."



BRENTON AVDULLA - WORD GAMES - 7/6/2017

"A beautiful run. Strong this time so maybe consider removing the blinkers. Finished well. Progressing in a good way."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - PASSAGE OF TIMES - 7/6/2017

"Very hard conditions but beautiful run. He's improved alot. Still a heavy horse but doing it in a nice way!"



HUGH BOWMAN - SHAHRAZAD - 7/6/2017

"Conditions were too hard for her today."



JOHAN VICTOIRE - BOMBARDIER - 3/6/2017

"Jumped well and we took up a good position behind the leader, travelled really easy down the straight. He was very green but won easily under a good hold and will be better over further."



BLAKE SPRIGGS - ROMAN SON - 3/6/2017

"He jumped and settled and very relaxed in the run. When asked for an effort, he really quickened. He got a little bit lost when he got to the front but I really liked that when they came at him in the last 50m, he stuck his head down and really powered through the line. An impressive win, he is on the way to being a good city class horse."



JEFF PENZA - SIMPLY IMPRESSIVE - 3/6/2017

"She jumped well and elected to take a sit she was weak up the last furlong due to her having a bleed."



JOHAN VICTOIRE - DREAMSHIP - 3/6/2017

"A little bit slow away and was very green in the straight but over the final 200m she really kicked and passed the line strongly. She gave me a really good feel but is just learning and will need a little bit further."



JOSH PARR - SEEBLUME - 27/5/2017

"Nice ability just too much of a hot head at this time."



JASON COLLETT - HITTITE - 27/5/2017

"Got home well but the steady tempo just made it too hard for her to pick up."



BRENTON AVDULLA - POWER LAW - 24/5/2017

"Travelled well and put himself behind the leader easily. He felt like the winner when the gap opened, took the gap and when the gap shut from both sides, that put him off a little bit."



HUGH BOWMAN - ENVY OF ALL - 24/5/2017

"Weak physically and mentally. Very tense in the barriers. She just need to relax a little bit more and she would race better. She would be ideally ridden better forward rather than off the speed but otherwise, happy with the run."



KEAGAN LATHAM - MANICC - 23/5/2017

"Broke well and travelled comfortably till the 600m and then couldn't quicken in that ground. She will be much happier on a sounder surface."



JAMES INNES JNR - PASSAGE OF TIME - 20/05/2017

"He was a bit disappointing today. Overraced a bit early and was one-paced in the straight."



RORY HUTCHINGS - RULING DYNASTY - 20/5/2017

"He was just fair. He got tired in the concluding stages but wouldn't give up"



GLYN SCHOFIELD - EQUIPPED 18/5/2017

"Another pleasing run, seemed to parade better in the ear muffs than in blinkers and settled better in the run, no excuses and will win a small race somewhere soon."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - COLOUR OF MONEY - 18/5/2017

"Travelled well outside the leaders and looked like he was going to play a hand in the finish at the 400m flag however seemed to get tired close home. Maybe a drop back to a mile may help him."



JEFF PENZA - LATIN BOY - 16/5/2017

"Started badly. Travelled strong but awkward. Maybe try blinkers and a noseroll next start."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - ASPEN STAR - 16/5/2017

"Started well, travelled good but got tired quickly."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - LOVESPEED GIRL - 16/5/2017

"Nice filly, always trying. Probably over 1400m she can win a race."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - PRIZED ICON - 13/5/2017

"He ran super. He looked the winner at the furlong but just found one a bit better."



DAMIAN BROWNE - GOOD STANDING - 13/5/2017

"Terrific run today. Got in a beautiful position early, travelled very nicely and put them away early in the straight and was strong through the line."



JAY FORD - SHAHRAZAD - 13/5/2017

"Covered ground throughout."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - EXCEEDS - 13/5/2017

"Disappointing effort. Took no part really."





JOHAN VICTOIRE - WORD GAMES - 13/5/2017

"She travelled well and really tried in the straight when the ther horses joined her but she can't keep up with them. Probably needs further."



JEFF PENZA - ROKDA KASBA - 12/5/2017

"He was much more settled without the blinkers and was able to dictate to pace from the front. A gutsy win and almost too relaxed. Maybe try winkers on for his next start!"



GLYN SCHOFIELD - SILK TOPPER - 10/5/2017

He still has a lot to learn, did a lot wrong early in the race he settled midrace and couldn’t sprint with them. Gave me a nice feel but a very big baby still.



TIM CLARK - MULL OVER - 10/5/2017

I was happy where I was but when the gap opened at the top of the straight she didn’t have much there. I think she’s had enough. She’s done well this prep.



BRENTON AVDULLA - GRAND THEFT AUTO - 10/5/2017

"Very Disappointed. She jumped well, was happy to settle a couple of pairs back. She never quickened and she’s probably coming to the end of her prep."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - ENVY OF ALL - 6/5/2017

"She ran well just got bobbed out of it. She's showed a bit of fight. The winner came past us quickly and she fought back. If he joined me a bit earlier it probably would of suited us more than him."



JOHAN VICTOIRE - HITTITE - 6/5/2017

"She won easily, probably even better over further."



JOHAN VICTOIRE - COLOUR OF MONEY - 6/5/2017

"Jumped nicely, travelled lovely and very good finish. Needs a race with more speed"



JAY FORD - POWER LAW - 6/05/2017

"A bit disappointing. I thought he could have done a little bit more."



GLYN SCHOFIELD - PASSAGE OF TIME - 6/5/2017

"He ran well. Had to make a move to go forward and he stuck on well."



TYE ANGLAND - SAVVAN - 6/5/2016

"She just went a little bit fierce. There was no pace in the race, we were unable to find a bum due to the lack of the pace. Sat outside the leader but she just did too much within herself to be able to finish off strong" 



GLYN SCHOFIELD - ASPEN STAR - 4/5/2017

"Very happy with the run considering it was his first start this prep and there should be more to come when stepped up to a mile."



KEAGAN LATHAM - MANICC - 2/5/2017

Broke alertly and always travelling well throughout. Very happy with the performance."



JEFF PENZA - ROKDA KASBA - 2/5/2017

"He jumped pretty good. Was upset by the tempo of the race but finished the race well."



KEAGAN LATHAM - LATIN BOY - 2/5/2017

"Missed the start slightly and was rushed up early to make use of the good draw, travelled well throughout but was outsprinted by the winner, ran well and will probably be suited by 1200m"



JAMES INNES JNR - BURNING PASSION - 29/04/2017

"Gets the run at the top of the straight, most probably the winner."



JEFF PENZA - HIGH IMPULSE - 29/04/2017

"She was going well but when I asked her to quick she just had nothing left"



JEFF PENZA - SEEBLUME - 29/04/2017

"Really happy with her performance. She did everything right and travelled good the whole way"





JASON COLLETT- SAVVAN 26/4/17

"Strong in the run, will benefit in fitness from the run. Good effort."



COREY BROWN- POWER LAW 26/4/17

"Jumped very well, was able to get in a good position. Big step up in distance, he got tired late."



DEAN YENDALL- ROCK AND SWING 25/4/17

"He's immature, probably 12 months away. "



JOHAN VICTOIRE- OSCAR AWARD 25/4/17

"She struggled to travel around the track, she would be better suited over further and on a bigger track."



JEFF PENZA- EQUIPPED 25/4/17

"Tried to find cover to allow him to settle, when i asked him for an effort he really responded and was very strong to the line. Great effort."



JOSHUA PARR- GRAND THEFT AUTO 25/4/17

She ran really well, jumped better than expected but the tempo was strong so she was able to relax at the back of the field. Flew home down the outside, she feels like she is looking for further. Nice filly."



TYE ANGLAND- WORD GAMES 25/4/17

"She was well behaved in the barriers, travelled nicely and was strong to the line. Will be better over further."



JEFF PENZA- BANNER SEASON 19/4/17

"He jumped ok, travelled nicely but is still learning. He took a while to wind up and will be much better over further."



JEFF PENZA- PASSAGE OF TIME 19/4/17

"Ran really well, he took a while to quicken but was very strong to the line."



HUGH BOWMAN-HITTITE 17/4/17

"Jumped and travelled mid field, nice run from her but will make more improvement over further."



BRENTON AVDULLA- ENVY OF ALL 17/4/17

"She jumped well, travelled nicely and was strong to the line. Great effort for her debut run."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- SMART AMELIA 15/4/17

"She ran well again. A nice tough run."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- WHISPERED SECRET 15/4/17

"She backed up well from last week. A good tough run."



JEFF PENZA- EQUIPPED 15/4/17

"Jumped well but wanted to pull in the early stages, travelled nicely but couldn't sprint as well as the other horses. Good effort from him, won't be far off from winning."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- RULING DYNASTY 15/4/17

"He ran really well. He was strong late."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- ROCK AND SWING 15/4/17

"He relaxed probably a tad too much out the back but he certainly finished off well."



KERRIN MCEVOY- ROKDA KASBA 15/4/17

"Out of his class today. He's still improving mentally. He hit a soft spot and lost his momentum."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- SKY BOY 13/4/17

"Behaved in the gates, travelled well but was green and cautious of the other horses around him. Will benefit from the run for fitness and experience."



TYE ANGLAND- POWER LAW 12/4/17

"Disappointing run. Had a nice path throughout the race but was outsprinted and didn't respond the last 200m."



JASON COLLETT- SAVVAN 12/4/17

"Very good first up run. The tempo didn't suit her but she hit the line very strongly, will benefit from this and will be better when she gets up over more ground."



JEFF PENZA- SEEBLUME 8/4/17

"She jumped ok, travelled well throughout the entire race but just couldn't get her nose in front of the other horse. Good effort."



KERRIN MCEVOY- VILLA CARLOTTA 8/4/17

"We were back, saved a little bit of ground around the bend then just got held up. I think she's a filly that will enjoy better ground and she'll be a better filly at three."



JOHAN VICTOIRE- CLEESE 8/4/17

"Jumped slowly, had to ride him aggressively for the majority of the race. May be a good candidate for gelding."



JEFF PENZA- OSCAR AWARD 8/4/17

"Ran well but this distance is too short for her. Needs further to allow her to stretch out in the straight- will be better for the run."



JASON COLLETT- WHISPERED SECRET 8/4/17

"She was a bit fierce early but once I got her to relax at the 1000m she slid up outside the leaders with her ears pricked. I could hear them coming about the 150m but I held them out easily."



TIM CLARK- TEMPT ME NOT 8/4/17

"She was there for the last little bit. Maybe back to 1100 metres."



TIM CLARK- HIGH IMPULSE 8/4/17

"Just not up to it today."





HUGH BOWMAN- TACTICAL ADVANTAGE 8/4/17

"There was a bit of traffic at the top of the straight when I needed some room but he didn't really finish off that well either."



JEFF PENZA- ROKDA KASBA 6/4/17

"Jumped well, wanted to over race so i managed to get some cover but he still continued to pull. Had to come around horses on the bend and he continued to lengthen away from them. Fantastic effort- maybe take the blinkers off for next start so he may not pull so hard. Really pleased that he broke his maiden."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- SMART AMELIA 1/4/17

"She's been showing us this promise for some time and it was good for her to get a good result. Good effort."



PRIZED ICON- GLYN SCHOFIELD 1/4/17

"He was in the right part (of the track). Slowly run on the inside of the winner but I think the ground took it out of him."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- MULL OVER 1/4/17

"Pulled hard and wouldn't settle."



BRENTON AVDULLA- HIGH IMPULSE 1/4/17

"She was okay. We ended up in a good spot one out but had Ollie going nowhere in front of us before the bend so we lost momentum."



JEFF PENZA- GRAND THEFT AUTO 1/4/17

"Missed the break and was slow into stride over the first 150m then ran a bit too free in the middle part of the race. She finished off the race well considering her previous mistakes. I think she would be better over 1200m."



JEFF PENZA- PASSAGE OF TIME 1/4/17

"He pinged the barriers and was always travelling beautifully, picked the leader up easily and was idling in front the last 150m. Will be better over further."



JEFF PENZA- MYSTIC AWARD 1/4/17

"Was a bit unbalanced and feels like she would benefit from a step up in trip. Feels like she will be better for the run."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- EQUIPPED 31/3/17

"Jumped ok, chimed in around the corner he was under pressure trying to do that, couldn't find a great deal in the last 250m he just paddled really. I think he might have been better suited further forward on the speed outside of the leader."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- BANNER SEASON 29/3/17

"He did well for his first start, nice horse. He is still learning but reacted well when i asked him to go. Will be better for the run and should show more next start."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- POWER LAW 29/3/17

"He ran well, travelled nicely throughout and was well on the bit. Very strong to the line."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- GID UP STROP 29/3/17

"Started well but his action changed slightly at the top of the straight so I thought it would be best to pull him up in case there was anything wrong. Better to be safe than sorry."



HUGH BOWMAN- VILLA CARLOTTA 25/3/17

"Bit wet for her and 1400 metres is probably a question mark as well."



BRENTON AVDULLA- ROCK AND SWING 25/3/17

"He raced well, he still did a bit wrong. I think in six months time you'll see quite a nice colt."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- PRIZED ICON 25/3/17

"Much nicer run today, hit the line strongly. A lot of room for encouragement and go into next week's race with a bit more confidence."



JOHAN VICTOIRE- OSCAR AWARD 25/3/17

"Jumped ok, took a while to settle but came home well and hit the line very strongly. Will be better for the run."



BOBBY IL-ESSA- LOVESPEED GIRL 25/3/17

"Ran ok but still very green. Might not be up to this level at this stage in her career, will take some improvement from the run."



KOBY JENNINGS- WORD GAMES 25/3/17

"Jumped well, there was no speed in the race which didn't suit her. Gave me a nice feel, will be better suited over further."



JEFF PENZA- WHISPERED SECRET 25/3/17

"Ran very well and has improved since her previous run. Very strong to the line- nice filly. Definitely city class."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- GRAND THEFT AUTO 23/3/17

"She jumped and got back today, travelled comfortably in the early stages of the race but the ground was a bit shifty, soon as they picked up it felt like she had a bit of running in her but when the gaps came for her half way down the straight she couldn't quite quicken into it- I'd put it down to the ground."



JEFF PENZA- ROKDA KASBA 23/3/17

"He jumped really well, was able to go forward early . Travelled really well up to the turn but then seemed to struggle in the going. In the concluding stages he finished off alright, seemed to hit the line well enough so it was a good run."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- COLOUR OF MONEY 23/3/17

"He travelled comfortably through the first half of the race but as soon as we quickened up on the wet ground he paddled and sank a bit deep in the ground and couldn't really get going in it."



HUGH BOWMAN- SEEBLUME 22/3/17

"She ran really well today, although I think that she will be much better over further. Her last 100m was certainly her best work."



TIM CLARK- TEMPT ME NOT 18/3/17

"Found the 1200m on a wet track too much first-up."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- TACTICAL ADVANTAGE 18/3/17

"He was never travelling. Tempo was solid but he never got a foothold and was struggling the whole way."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- PRIZED ICON 18/3/17

"Travelled through the ground pretty sweetly for me during the first half of the race but then as soon as the speed came on he was struggling."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- MEDAL KUN 17/3/17

" He ran well, but there was not a lot of speed in the race so that didn't suit him."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- MULL OVER 17/3/17

" She jumped well, pulled a bit in the early stages but soon relaxed in the run. Finished off very strongly, nice win."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- MYSTIC AWARD 17/3/17

"She ran well, was a nice debut run from her. I think she's a nice filly that will be better suited over more ground."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- CLEESE 13/3/17

"Jumped well but was caught wide during the race. Tried to pick up in the straight but was just one paced- may be better over further."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- ROCK AND SWING 11/3/17

"He raced a little bit erratically, in the straight especially, but he's got a race like this in his sights."



JEFF PENZA- DELUXE 11/3/17

"She jumped brilliantly, travelled very nicely - relaxed throughout the run. When i asked for an effort she didn't deliver, perhaps time for a freshen up."



ANDREW GIBBONS- WHISPERED SECRET 11/3/17

"Jumped well, relaxed in the run but when i asked her to quicken in the straight she started hanging under the pressure. Once she had figured it all out she quickened very nicely, just a big baby and will be better for the run. Nice filly."



BLAKE SHINN- EXCEEDS 11/3/17

"Had a nice run throughout, followed Alizee into the straight but she lacked the turn of foot when I needed it from her."



JEFF PENZA- EQUIPPED 10/3/17

"He jumped out nicely, more laid back today even with the blinkers. This will be beneficial as he gets up over further, I think he needs to. Came out to the middle where the winner was- worked along ok but needs to step up in distance."



TYE ANGLAND- POWER LAW 10/3/17

"He jumped well, i didn't want to be too close to the speed so we just settled mid-field. Ran on well but knocked up slightly the last 150m, will be better for the run."



MITCHELL BELL- FENCOURT 10/3/17

"Was very immature today- don't think he is there mentally. Not focusing whilst still a colt maybe gelding would help him concentrate and want to race."



JEFF PENZA- ROKDA KASBA 9/3/17

"Jumped out really well, rode him closer to the front and he relaxed in behind another horse. Still a bit green when he had his head in front but will definitely take experience from that run. Will be better over even further."



JOHAN VICTOIRE- MULL OVER 5/3/17

"She jumped well from a wide gate, had no choice but to stay 3 wide but i did have cover. She ran home well but just got run down the last 50m, good run from her."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- MASIPAG 5/3/17

She jumped ok from the barriers, travelled well near the front and picked up very nicely in the straight. Thought we nearly had it but the stablemate was too strong, good effort from this filly."



BROCK RYAN- SMART AMELIA 5/3/17

I ended up further back then I wanted to be but I thought I would have had to use too much gas early to keep her in a handy position so decided to sit and be patient. I had to ask for quite a bit of an effort but she won well, especially with the weight."



DEAN YENDALL- PRIZED ICON 4/3/17

"He gave me a lovely ride and positioned on the back of Hey Doc. I followed him wherever he went, I was just hoping he pushed the button earlier on him and I could chase him down but it was a good run."



BLAKE SHINN- VILLA CARLOTTA 4/3/17

"Very game effort. Got beaten by two very good horses. She stuck on well in that ground."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- MEDAL KUN 2/3/17

He ran well and did a very good job. Much improved from his previous run- the step up in distance certainly helped, may be able to get up over even further- Nice horse."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- HIGH IMPULSE 2/3/17

She travelled really well today- loved the distance and wet ground. Ran home very strongly to the line and feels like a definite staying type, could get over even further. Good effort from her today."



BROCK RYAN- COLOUR OF MONEY 2/3/17

"He ran ok but struggled with the heavy going. Didn't manage to show anything over the final stages of the race- will be better over a dryer track."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- ROKDA KASBA 26/2/17

"I was happy with the way he ran, travelled nicely and finished strongly to the line. Will be much better over further."



JAMES INNES JNR- MOST EXALTED 25/2/17

"Jumped went back and travelled well but as soon as push came to shove, the track got the better of him."



BRENTON AVDULLA- EXCEEDS 25/2/17

"Hated that ground. I was a beaten horse half way around."



MITCHELL BELL- QUICK REFLECTS 25/2/17

"Travelled well but gave up when passed by other horses. May need further again or a downgrade in class."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- BADGE OF GAMENESS 23/2/17

"He ran well, still a big baby and was a little bit green in the straight. Got a bit lost when they picked up."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- SEEBLUME 23/2/17

"She jumped slowly,had very little speed in the run but then ran on very strongly. Might be better over slightly further, touch green so maybe keep the blinkers on."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- GRAND THEFT AUTO 22/2/17

"Jumped and travelled well. Started to pick up nicely in the straight but we got held up for a run. Will be better for the experience."



JOSH PARR- ROCK AND SWING 22/2/17

"Jumped well, slow into stride but once he picked up he wanted to over race slightly. Took a while to pick up in the straight but hit the line very well- pleasing run."



JOSH PARR- POTENT FORCE 22/2/17

"Jumped well and travelled nicely, takes a while to get into stride but will be better over further. Good run from him."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- DELUXE 22/2/17

"She travelled nicely and tried hard in the straight but the winner was too good."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- POWER LAW 21/2/17

"The tempo of the race today didn't suit his racing style. They went very slowly and then sprinted which he didn't handle. He still should have hit the line better than he did, will improve for next start."



JOHAN VICTOIRE- MASIPAG 18/2/17

“She jumped well so I was able to lead and control the race. The ground felt a bit too firm for her so I think if we could run her on a soft track she will be able to win.”



MITCHELL BELL- CLEESE 18/2/17

"Jumped quite well, I had to go forward from the alley, was the only choice that i really had. Ended up outside the stable mate, travelled alright for 400m but then he came back underneath me. Had to keep on at him- he produced a nice long run, feels like a horse that will get up to a mile or more. This grade would be perfect."



JEFF PENZA- EQUIPPED 18/2/17

"He jumped well, travelled nicely enough throughout the race as he is a horse that can get his head up so it was good that he was quite settled. Came off of the bit a bit early, hard ridden coming around the home turn but he kept going to the line pretty well. Just a bit one paced."



GLYN SCHOFIELD- TACTICAL ADVANTAGE 18/2/17

“That was his best win yet. I gave him one little reminder with the persuader, it was just a love tap really. His racing style before today left a lot to be desired where he erratically but today he ran true. Today was his best performance so there’s a lot to like about him.”



GLYN SCHOFIELD- PRIZED ICON 18/2/17

“He ran well but it is just a bit too short for him, will put him in good stead for his next start.”



Brenton Avdulla - Exceeds 21/1/17

“She was terrific. Took good benefit from her run the other day in a good form race. James took the blinkers off her and dropped her back in distance. We rode her quieter and it paid dividends. She travelled really well and put them away quickly. She got a bit lost once she hit the front so no reason she won’t improve further.”



Glyn Schofield - Tactical Advantage 21/1/17

“He’s certainly making his way through the grades. A lot to like about his performance again, he had a bit of a stargaze once he hit the front, he had a bit of a look around, he ran off a straight course, but still got the job done. James made the right call training him for the 1000m, he showed great judgement.”



Ched Lever - High Impulse 21/7/2017

“She ran very well, improved the whole way and finished strongly. Still a little bit green but can probably go straight up to a mile.”



Glen Schofield - Nepean 28/1/17

“He wasn’t himself today, the heat probably got to him. He didn’t travel as well as he did at Randwick and when I asked him to quicken he had nothing.”



Jeff Penza - Only Tiger 28/1/17

“Jumped nicely enough, still a horse that wants to get on the bit and lay out so the faster tempo definitely suited. Still learning but is on his way up.”
