The progressive Ceerseven delivered Mitch Freedman his first win in Sydney on Saturday February 10, as he added a second victory on the bounce and his fourth overall.

Ceerseven bounced out of his race at Moonee Valley, feeling well and full of confidence which made Freedman very bullish that he had the son of Complacent right on song. “He’s carrying great condition, something that he has typically struggled with in previous campaigns and is going really well. He had a couple of gallops the reverse way and I couldn’t have been happier with how he was going into the race.”

With the Inglis Classic sale in full swing over the weekend, it was a long range, tactical play from Freedman to travel Ceerseven to Sydney where he was spending the week for inspections. “It’s really rewarding when plans like this come off. The race conditions were appealing and it was perfect timing to travel the horse, with the cherry on top having Ben Melham available in Sydney to ride” said a very pleased Freedman post-race.

You won’t find many better examples of a progressive horse that successfully rises through the grades. Ceerseven has won his maiden on debut, a BM64, BM70 and now a BM78 to go with $179,600 in prize money. With a rating of 77, Ceerseven is very versatile and the team are confident he can continue to pick off some more ratings based races – definitely one for the black book!

A special thank you to the team at Bjorn Baker’s whom assisted with the care of Ceerseven in the days leading up to the race and on race day.┬áCeerseven has arrived back to Ballarat safely and we will likely see him again at the races in early March searching for a hattrick, like his namesake has done more times than anyone in the world.
