Singapore’s NZ bred superstar Super Easy continued his unbeaten domination of the three-year-old ranks with a convincing victory in the Group 2 3YO Classic (1400m) at Kranji on Sunday evening.
Super Easy (Darci Brahma) is now unbeaten in nine Singapore starts including the first two legs of the Singapore Triple Crown. He was coming off a victory in the G3 Singapore Sprint (1200m).
Champion jockey Joao Moreira rode a confident race in the 3YO Classic even though the colt had some work to do at the 400m mark. But when a gap opened up in the straight, the son of Darci Brahma used his acceleration to devastating effect.
The Michael Freedman trained colt will now be aimed at the G1 Singapore Guineas (1600m) on May 18 where he will be looking to join the likes of fellow Karaka graduate Better Than Ever and Gingerbread Man who have also won the Triple Crown.
Freedman is confident he will run out a strong mile and is even thinking ahead for a proposed spring campaign in Australia. “As he’s a colt, I was thinking of maybe sending him to Melbourne for the G1 Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.
“That race would suit him, but we will have to discuss it with the owners first.”
Super Easy was offered by Esker Lodge at NZ Bloodstock’s 2010 Karaka Premier Sale where he was purchased by Blue Sky Thoroughbreds for $140,000. Raced by the Joy N Happiness Stable, Super Easy has now taken his stakes earnings to over S$840,000.
Super Easy was one of five New Zealand bred winners at Kranji on Sunday night. They included Three Kings (Kingsttenham), Sulmona (Van Nistelrooy), Urban Dancer (O’Reilly) and Sir Fleetwood (Riviera).
