Freedman’s promising 3yo colt was an impressive winner at Geelong on Sunday January 29, stringing together his 2nd victory in a row and now looks primed for an Autumn Assault.

Taking on the older horses and stepping out of maiden grade, Attrition was sent around a red-hot $1.45 favourite and was a painless watch, winning eased down by 4lengths. Freedman was thrilled by the scintillating performance of his 3yo colt, “He had to come here and take on the battle harden horses” but his class prevailed. “He is just such an athlete, we have some Autumn targets for him and we are excited to see where he can get to in the next couple of runs.”

Post-race Jarrod Fry felt Attrition didn’t love the soft track and will improve back on top of the ground, yet “the cream always rises to the top.” Freedman has some Autumn targets for the colt, which will likely see him step out in stakes grade for his next race.

Attrition is arguably the most promising Southern hemisphere bred son of Coolmore’s Champion miler, Churchill. From the first time Freedman saw him he noted “He’s got a lot of Galileo about him.” Churchill is already the sire of multiple stakes winners in the Northern-hemisphere including two Group 1 winners.

Congratulations to the ownership group and join us in wishing them all the best for an exciting ride!
