"I had a lot of confidence in him today, having the race away from Eagle Farm probably dented my hopes a little bit, but I'd always set her for this race."
"Paul (Bacon) was looking down on us today, to win in his colours was just amazing."
"Paul brought me back to racing when he trusted me with this beautiful filly, I was driving trucks!"
"He's been amazing to me me and I hope we've done him and his family proud."
"I said to Paul six to eight months ago we'll win the Oaks with this filly and after her run in The Roses he said to me you're right she will win the Oaks."
"She's only just scratched the surface this filly, once she's fully furnished she could win the Caulfield Cup this horse."
"Great to give him (Matthew McGillivray) his first Group One, he's stuck with the horse and took a bold ride to get her home today."
Jockey - Matthew McGillivray
"This is what we do it for, all the hard yards getting up at 3.30 in the morning, having a sweat, keeping you're weight down it's all worth it now this is a dream come true."
"I did about eighty thousand kilometres my first year I went to Birdsville, Longreach, Barcaldine, Roma I can't be more thankful to everyone that's helped me."
"I didn't get a chance to meet Paul Bacon, but I knew the bond between him and Gary, I just wish he was here to give him a big hug."
"He was a bit unlucky last start he could have been right in the finish, but today I let go early and made my own luck."
