Master Of Coin continues to improve sharply this preparation and it was thrilling for the team to see the 3yo gelding break is maiden on Easter Saturday.

Freedman’s patient approach is paying dividends with Master Of Coin, having given him a prolonged break over the Spring to mature physically and mentally. Following the Spring on his back, Master Of Coin returned bigger, stronger and more focused, showing great improvement at the jump outs and continually learning each start, resulting in his maiden win at start five.Master Of Coin ridden by Neil Farley wins the Warrack Motel Maiden Plate at Warracknabeal Racecourse on April 16, 2022 in Warracknabeal, Australia.

Master Of Coin is owned by Lion Rock Bloodstock and Freedman was pleased to get a win for Ben Kwok and his team. “ He has been a slow developer, which I think is a result of his pedigree, the team have been mindful of that and allowed him to progress through the system gradually. He is bred to stay and we will try him out of further soon.”

The addition of blinkers has really clicked for Master Of Coin, who is far more focused on the task at hand. The son of Hinchinbrook was unlucky at his two previous starts at Kyneton, before ‘putting it all together’ under a great ride by Neil Farley.

Freedman continues to be impressed with the improvement shown by Master Of Coin and we are hopeful he can continue on his upward trajectory into the Winter months, with an eye on the Mahogany Challenge series.
