Promising two-year-old filly Vagrant ran a bold third in the listed Oaklands Plate on Saturday July 16 at Morphettville. Vagrant has made an impressive start to her career, beating the older horses on debut at Swan Hill, making the step to Flemington in the 2yo sprint final, beaten a length and now adding black type to her pedigree at only her third career start.

After settling back in the field, Vagrant was the eye-catching runner with a big run against the track pattern, taking considerable ground of the two tearaway leaders. There is no doubt this filly will be in for a big three-year-old season, we hope she can improve her stakes placing to a stakes victory!

Freedman purchased the filly at the 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast sale and has been a fantastic addition to the stable. Born and raised at Twin Hills stud, principal Olly Tait “always had a high opinion of her.” Vagrant is out of My Obsession (Lonrho), who was a consistent city performer and a horse Freedman worked with as foreman with Darren Weir. Freedman loved the filly from the first time he laid eyes on her, her professionalism and kind nature has translated into a bold start to her racing career.

Congratulations to the connections of Vagrant, in particular the first-time owners with the Mitch Freedman team in adding black-type to their fillies’ pedigree!
