Winning Trainer: Mike Moroney

"Nine-years-old and probably racing at his best. These staying bred horses, German horses in particular, they've got longevity in their legs without any doubt and he's done a great job.

"He's now won $1.8 millon in prizemoney so he has done a good job.

"He has been a bit maligned as being a bridesmaid but he got it eight today.

"He's hopefully going to find a stud in New Zealand, we're hoping. It is a good place to breed nice stayers and they are renowned for doing it.

"He'd be the right sort of horse in the right home.

"He'll probably go back to the Auckland Cup at this stage (rather than Sydney Cup). We might back him up in the Pakenham Cup next week. We'll see how he pulls up."

Winning Jockey: Jamie Mott

Had a short break to refresh: "Came back here with a couple of nice rides and Sound has been running terrific.

"I reckon if you look through his form he has probably been going better this time than last preparation.

"Obviously Spanish Mission had the boom on him and you just had to hope that he failed today and he did.

"We were the horse ready to pounce and my bloke was terrific."

Slow pace: "I was getting more confident because the sit-and-sprint played into my favour. Last start was a staying test. I thought there might be one, maybe two better today if it was a strong staying test so I was happy that it was run softly and my bloke would have a nice short, sharp sprint."

GLEN BOSS

"That colt gave me a wonderful ride throughout the race. There was hardly a step in that race that I didn't feel a winner. Once I got to the 500-metre mark I asked him to come up underneath me and he wasn't there. To his credit he tried very hard.

"What a fitting way to go out. I gave that horse every possible hop. I got in the zone, I felt good.

"Like I said, the result was not going to define my career. Just being here today, being in front of this Melbourne crowd. Having my family here. I want to thank everybody. It's been a wonderful journey. It's been a tough time at times the journey but when you do the scales, the good times far outweigh the bad times. Thery're insignificant.

"Thanks guys.

"I feel wonderful honestly.

"I go out feeling good. I've given a good horse, a good ride and I couldn't ask for anymore."

How would the kid who rode his first winner at Gympie in 1985 look back?

"He'd be mind blown, to be honest, but at the same time he expected it. That's what I wanted to do.. That 15 year-old kid would have said, good job, because at no stage did I ever take my eye off the ball, at no stage did I ever wavered from where I wanted to be and this is where I wanted to be."
