The lightly raced Fly Lie has been a model of consistency this preparation and added a second career win at Bendigo, leading from pillar to post.
In five starts this preparation, Fly Lie has had a narrow second, a third and fourth (photo finish) along with his two wins. The son of Sebring has taken some time to furnish and learn his caper, but the patience of Freedman and the ownership group has paid off, as he soars passed his sale price and has put just shy of $50,000 in the bank in only six starts.
Heading to Bendigo for one ride, Jarrod Fry put his case forward for ride of the day, taking the initiative to lead, maintaining a good rhythm and kicking away for a comfortable 1.5length victory. Gleaming in confidence, Fry explained post-race “When we got to the top and they left us alone, I knew he was going to be very hard to catch.”
Raced in partnership with Mr Mark Hoare’s Pacific Bloodstock and boasting his breeders, Peachester Lodge in the ownership, it is very satisfying to see Fly Lie continue to build through the grades. Now heading for a spell, Freedman is very pleased with the efforts of his gelding. “I think there is plenty of physical and mental development to come, he’s done a great job this time round and we will see an improved horse again next preparation.”
The Freedman stable is in red hot form to start this season, striking at 20% with 7 winners so far this season – and a couple of sick beats! A great time to get involved with our stable, click on the link below to see the horses that are currently available.
