Hang On Harvey was an impressive winner on debut at Echuca on November 1 over 1400m. Hang On Harvey is a 3yo Freedman has really liked from first laying eyes on him following the Gold Coast National Yearling Sale.

Hang On Harvey was bought from a Phil Cataldo shortlist and inspected entirely online by Mitch during the pandemic. “He has shown tremendous improvement each preperation and that was on display at the first time of asking. He has a long way to go physically which should help him through the grades.”

Partnered by Jake Duffy, Hang On Harvey carried on his impressive trial form to race day, settling off the speed and finding his rhythm. When the pressure came on, Harvey showed great versatility, particularly for a first starter to navigate a path through traffic and attack the line strongly.

He looks to be a nice stayer on the rise and will continue to improve with racing and stepping out in distance. Hang On Harvey is raced in partnership with Towner Racing and new clients with the stable. This is the first winner in partnership with Towner Racing and marks an exciting time for the stable. Thank you to his fantastic owners and we look forward to seeing him back in the winners circle.
