Winning Trainer: Anthony & Sam Freedman (rep by Brad Taylor)

"Do they have to shut the track (Caulfield) for the next two years? We'd prefer to stay here, I think, for these two-year-old races over 1200 metres.

"Big result. Obviously we had the favourite for the race (Crosswinds) but unfortunately he sustained an injury and missed the race. We had Mark as the rider and on Wednesday morning we thought we'd throw him in rather than going to Bendigo next week for a maiden.

"He's a horse that has always shown a little bit and he's a horse that is going to get further and when they went a nice tempo and Mark peeled out at the top of the straight I thought he was going to be closing hard.

"Shades of Artorius."

Purchase: "When Anthony goes to Adelaide he shuts the book and finds horses on type and this is another one of his fantastic buys. He's a freak of a judge and with the help of Julian and Sam, our bloodstock agents, he picks good horses and the team are fortunate enough and the owners reap the rewards."

Winning Jockey: Mark Zahra

"The world works in mysterious ways. We were on Crosswinds and he was due for a jump out last week and, to be honest, when he didn't accept and this one accepted, I said 'I've never heard of this horse, what happened here?'

"One went sore so I picked this up and thought alright away we go and luckily he's got the money."
