Craig's post race interview comments

“It is unexplainable. I have only just moved here and I have won one of the biggest races. It is overwhelming,” Zackey said.

“Mark left it up to me and I thought I’d leave it up to the horse.

“After falling out of the gates like that, losing ground, getting back on his feet, finding a rhythm again and then to go and hunt down eight or nine lengths in the straight – that is what a good horse is made of.

“I couldn’t have dreamt for this to happen. I think it will probably take a day or two to really hit me but for the time being I am just really glad for Mark Walker and Sam Bergerson (assistant trainer).”
