Aidan O'Brien: "That's great, I'm delighted - that's a special one. We appreciate everybody has done a lot of hard work with the filly and we appreciate Mr and Mrs Magnier, who own half of her, letting Sarah her. It was a great chance for her to come here, so it's a massive day - and a great track to do it on. It's a special weekend, unbelievable."

Sarah O'Brien: "It's great and she did it very well. It's brilliant race-riding, I love it. The filly doesn't like to get to the front too early so the way the race went suited me well. I'll keep riding away, hopefully I'll go to college next year and keep riding plenty. I used to ride a lot of ponies but I'm concentrating more on racehorses now."
