The exciting Ceerseven scored a second career victory at Bendigo on August 31, sustaining a massive run from the back of the field to win by a head. Whilst the margin was small, it was a confidence building run for Ceerseven and sets the tone for an exciting preparation ahead.
The lightly raced four-year-old showed great promise in his first racing campaign, winning on debut before a luckless placing at mid-week level and a step up to Group 2 level in the Alister Clark, where he went to the line with subsequent Group 1 winner Dunkel.
Whilst Freedman is very pleased with the way the horse has come up this preparation, he feels “he is a horse who gets a buzzed up and is learning to cope with the demands of being a race horse.” Yet Freedman has “no doubt” he will make a good level with experience and time on his side.
Winning on the final day of Winter, the Spring looks ominous for Ceerseven. Freedman will look to play the patient game with his promising stayer, looking to place him through the grades and string some good racing together for him. “We will place him to his advantage now and if he can put some more wins on the board then we can take the step up.”
Ceerseven has a great group of local owners and we are thrilled to get another win for them, an exciting journey ahead!
