Australian trainer Michael Freedman joined the Kranji training ranks in April 2008. The youngest brother of Hall of Fame trainer Lee, Michael has also been the Racing Manager at Lee Freedman’s Markdel property in Victoria before coming to Singapore. Freedman has learned a lot from his brother after working alongside him for about 20 years. The Freedman yard did not take long to win silverware at Kranji. Most notable feature wins years include the Group 1 Raffles Cup thrice with CHEYENNE DANCER (2009), ALWAYS CERTAIN (2011) and SUPER NINETYSEVEN (2013). That year in 2013, Freedman rewrote another chapter of his successful career when he took out the time-honoured Group 1 Longines Singapore Gold Cup with TROPAIOS. But the best horse Freedman trained was SUPER EASY who won nine races at Group level, including the Singapore Three-Year-Old Challenge clean sweep, the Group 1 Lion City Cup and Group 1 Patron's Bowl,and was crowned Singapore Horse of the Year two years in a row in 2012 and 2013. SUPER EASY was retired to stud shortly after his Patron's Bowl win. Freedman enjoyed his best season in 2012 when he missed his first Singapore champion trainer title by a whisker, tying with trainer Laurie Laxon on wins but losing out on a countback for seconds.
