Freedman Aims For 500th Stakes-Winner At Scone
Trainer Lee Freedman "can move within 1 feature race success of a significant career milestone if Fanjura wins the Listed $175,000 Emirates Park Scone Cup (1600m) on Friday" noted The Daily Telegraph. Freedman recorded his 498th stakes-winner when Ain'tnofallenstar won last weekend's Laelia Stakes in Adelaide & "is within sight of the elite 500 club". Only 4 Australian trainers have prepared the winners of 500 Group or Listed winners: Tommy Smith (824), Bart Cummings (730), John Hawkes (546) & Colin Hayes (523). Scone racetrack could be the scene of the latest to reach that mark, because Freedman has also entered Dane Julia for the Listed $175,000 Arrowfield Stud Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) on Saturday.
