Freedmans turn Cash into Diamonds

The Freedman brothers banked another cheque in Singapore on Sunday when Cash Luck was a brilliant winner of the $75,000 Adelaide Yearling Stakes at Kranji.

Cash Luck (2g Bradbury’s Luck – Blue Celeste by Geiger Counter) also collected a $25,000 bonus for being an Australian-bred and sold youngster in the Golden Horseshoe Series.  He was sold by Royston Stud for $12,000 at the 2010 Gold Coast Magic Millions QTIS 600 yearling sale.

Trainer Michael Freedman expects the youngster to keep improving.  “He’s probably not a real two-year-old,” Freedman said.  “He’s still got some growing and filling out to do and I think he will make a much better three-year-old.”

Cash Luck raced clear in the straight to beat Kaiser (Seidnazar) and Beyonce (My Halo) by more than three lengths.

It continued the good run being enjoyed by the Freedmans and the progeny of Glenlogan Park sire Bradbury’s Luck in Singapore.  They have combined to win four races with talented youngster Kennecott.

Back home in Victoria, Hall of Fame trainer Lee Freedman can cause an upset in the G1 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield this Saturday.  He will saddle up Atomic (Commands) who is on the third line of betting behind odds-on favourite Sepoy.

Freedman has already won Blue Diamonds with Knowledge (1997), Danelagh (1998) and Alinghi (2004).
