Patrika Gold led from pillar to post on Friday at Ararat for her second career victory. The daughter of Puissance De Lune has been has showed good abilty at home, but has been a challenge for Mitch and the team. After winning comfortably on debut, Mitch tested her out at city class but unfortunately things did not go to plan. May be an image of 2 people, people standing, horse and outdoors

Following a disappointing two-start campaign in the spring, Freedman trusted that he could get the mare back on song, nurturing her in the stables and rebuilding her confidence and fitness. Her owner, Paul Sturt has been a pleasure to deal with and we were thrilled to get another result with the mare. We feel she has far better ability than benchmark 58 grade and this is a step in the right direction.  Patrika Gold was ridden by veteran Victorian jockey, Mark Pegus who rode his first winner for the stable for quiet some time. Mark has been working hard for the stable and great to see a result for the team.

The Team Freedman momentum continues to roll on, going at almost 50% runners in the top 3 for the past 50 runners and it is very pleasing to see another winner.
