Lee Freedman recently submitted an application to train in Singapore. Today, it has been confirmed that his application was successful and the Singapore Turf Club has granted him a licence where he will take up the opportunity to train.
This is an exciting new venture for Lee and a timely passing of the batton as Anthony’s son, Sam returns to Australia. It will be business as usual at Freedman Racing, their training routines will stay in place and we will continue to utilise the terrific facilities at both Pinecliff and Flemington to provide the best environment for their horses.
At Flemington, they have been given the opportunity to move into a new stable complex; a valuable upgrade from the previous allotment. They have also increased our number in training at their private property at Pinecliff.
Anthony will now oversee both stables with the assistance of a first class racing team. The Flemington Stable will remain in the care of Steve Adams who has been with the team for fifteen years and held the foreman’s position for over a decade. Ash Yargi will also continue to lead the team at Pinecliff with great diligence and loyalty. Ash is familiar face to stable owners and another member of staff who has spent over a decade at Freedman Racing. Working closely with Anthony, Steve and Ash is our Racing Manager, Brad Taylor who joined the team at the beginning of the year.
Perhaps the most exciting prospect is the imminent return of Sam Freedman who has spent the past two years as a pupil assistant to leading UK trainer Roger Varian, and a key member of his Newmarket operation. Sam will not only bring home some fresh and innovative ideas but also a youthful enthusiasm and drive to continue the success of Freedman Racing.
Freedman Racing are aware of the responsibility they have to owners, the training and care of horses has been, and will always be the number one priority. Freedman Racing has been a successful family run business for over four decades and will continue that way for many years to come.
Freedman Racing stable is always open to owners and they are thankful for the continued support.
We wish Lee all the best in his new endeavour and confidently look forward to the new season with some exciting spring prospects ahead of Freedman Racing.
