Kyneton is proving to be a happy hunting ground for Freedman, with three winners from his last three runners after Capre Omnia justified his odds on favouritism, dispatching his rivals with ease.
The lightly raced son of Headwater is a progressive gelding who is climbing through his grades and added his second win of the preparation, with a simply dominant display back to benchmark 58 grade. After running in a strong form race at Sandown a fortnight ago, of which there have been three other subsequent winners, Freedman felt his gelding was going to be best suited back to 1100m and the BM58 at Kyneton jumped out in the calendar.
It was a comfortable watch for owners and punters, as Capre Omnia sailed straight past his rivals at the 400m under a hold before sprinting away to win by 3lengths. Capre Omnia was Jarrod Fry’s first winner back after an injury enforced lay off and Freedman was delighted to team up with his good mate to be back in the winners circle.
When questioned on the future of Capre Omnia, Fry commented post race that he thinks he can measure up in much stronger grade, “wins like this give a horse good confidence and Mitch’s team is going well.” With a rating of 65, a BM64 looks well within the grasp of Capre Omnia and we wish his owners all the best next time at the races!
