'When it came to the last corner I was behind Alexander Goldrun. She helped me in to the race but unfortunately we had to come a little bit early. She has a great turn of foot, but her run is quite short so she was stopping a bit for me at the end and I was frightened we might get caught. She has that very special fighting spirit that got her home.' Christophe Lemaire, jockey of Pride. 'She is a marvellous filly with a brilliant turn of foot. Today is a special story in a long career. We have a new system of keeping three great fillies going and today all three are retiring. As for me, I will have to find another one.' Alain de Royer-Dupre, trainer of Pride. 'I had him settled well. He didn't jump from the gates too smoothly so I had him at the back and he quickened very well in the stretch. He's still only a three-year-old colt so he is something to look forward to for the future.' Yutaka Take, jockey of Admire Moon. 'I had to come out at the 1,000m mark because another horse was coming back on me. Anyway he's run his heart out today but the other two were just too strong.' Anthony Delpech, jockey of Vengeance Of Rain. 'I was happy with his run today and he's on the way back and has stepped up from his last two runs.' Christophe Soumillon, jockey of Viva Pataca. 'I had a nice run on the fence and he didn't do too badly for a horse nobody liked.' Eric Saint-Martin, jockey of Art Trader. 'She's run a great race. She was really going forward turning for home and I was very happy with her effort but just not good enough today.' Frankie Dettori, jockey of Satwa Queen. 'To be honest I'm just not sure what to make of the run. Guess it's back to the drawing board with him.' Brett Prebble, jockey of Hello Pretty. 'There were no excuses really. I was perfectly happy until turning in to the straight. It's the end of a great era... She is one of three great fillies to have retired today.' Jim Bolger, trainer of Alexander Goldrun. 'We got some cheap sectionals up front but they attacked a long way from home. He had his spring in Melbourne and some of the others might have been a bit fresher. He'll win some races here in Hong Kong, though.' Craig Williams, jockey of Growl.
