the win. “The way he jumped away, if he had of drawn a barrier, he could have box seated but he was very good.,” Currie said. “He got there and had a bit of a look around and when the two (horses) came to his inside I felt him lift again. He definitely wants to get out to seven furlongs and probably beyond.” The victory was also Freedman’s first winner for leading syndicator Brad Spicer who races Aeecee Diamond in partnership with the Australian Chinese Jockey Club.
