The lightly raced Capre Omnia was an impressive winner at Seymour on September 22, justifying his short favouritism to salute at his fourth start.
The son of Headwater has been a consistent performer at each start, finishing within a length of the winner both times in his first campaign and first up this preparation finished fourth out of a strong form race, with 2nd and 3rd both coming out to win in their next start.
Capre Omnia had to do it the hard way after not beginning as well as planned and settled in the back half of the field. Taking his medicine, Capre Omnia built into the race strongly and hit even more strife in the straight, getting severely hampered by horses shifting out but was still far too good in the final 100m, winning by over a length, eased down.
Whilst only a maiden, the win was very satisfying for Freedman who has had to play the long game with Capre Omnia. After being purchased from Inglis Classic in 2021, he suffered an injury setback, resulting in Freedman maintaining a larger than anticipated share in the horse, but the patience has now paid off and the team now reaping the rewards. “He’s got enough talent and even though he’s taken a little while, hopefully he can win a few races.”
Amongst the ownership group is a first-time winning owner, Jude Almedia. Mr Almedia has had three horses with the Freedman stable and unfortunately had no luck with the first two horses, so a very pleasing result to see Capre Omnia win, and look like he has plenty more in store. Thank you to Mr Almedia for his loyal support of the stable and we are glad that we could repay the faith.
Keep an eye out for Capre Omnia over the spring as a horse who looks like he will rapidly rise through the grades.
