First X1 for Super Easy

High quality NZ bred colt Super Easy kept his winning record intact in Singapore with a G3 victory in the Paititi Gold Trophy (1200m) on Sunday.

It was the his 11th straight success since arriving in Singapore after doing his early racing in New Zealand.

Super Easy (3c Darci Brahma – Parfore by Gold Brose) started a pronounced short-priced favourite and scored a runaway four length victory under Joao Moreira,.  He’s now within one of Better Than Ever (French Deputy) who claimed 12 consecutive wins in Singapore.

The race panned out perfectly for the favourite who settled in third position behind Captain Obvious and Yin Xin.

Trainer Michael Freedman admitted to some nerves prior to the race but added that was more because of the number of wins the colt had strung together.  “My wife Ann reckons I’m a pessimist,” Freedman said.  “The more wins you have on the trot the more you worry about things not working out.

“It is always a concern coming back to the 1200m after running at 1600m last time and that did have me worried as there were some very good sprinters in the field.  But this horse has a great turn of foot and I would say that was probably one of his more dominant wins.

“He’s just a great horse to train.  He can camp on them in a six furlong race or you can ride him back over a mile and he can still get over them.  I’ve been involved with a lot of great horses back home in Australia but this horse would be right up there with them.”

Super Easy will likely to progress to the G3 Jumbo Jet Trophy (1400m) on September 2 and the G1 Kranji Mile (1600m) on October 7.  The G1 Raffles Cup (1800m) on October 21 is also under consideration as is the G1 International Mile race in Hong Kong at the end of the year.

A son of Darci Brahma, Super Easy was bred by Abu Dhabi based businessman Mike Ryan and is related to four-time stakes winner Our Lukas (Generous) as well as Joe Pride’s G3 winner Tiger Tees (Dubawi).

A graduate of the 2010 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale, Super Easy was knocked down to Blue Sky Thoroughbreds for $140,000 from the draft of Esker Lodge.
