Super One “50-50” for Morphettville Run on Saturday

Co-trainer Lee Freedman has marked the chances of young Singaporean import Super One as “50-50” to run first-up at Morphettville Racecourse this Saturday in Adelaide.

A winner of four of his six career starts to date, the dual black-type winning son of I Am Invincible is nominated for both the $120,000 Group 3 R N Irwin Stakes (1100m) and the $100,000 Listed Redelva Stakes (1100m) on the weekend.

The spruik three-year-old colt debuted down under on October 11 when second to General Jackson, going down as the beaten odds-on favourite over 1000m at Cranbourne in his first run since transferring to Lee & Anthony Freedman from the stables of Lee’s brother, Michael, in Singapore.

He was thrown in the deep end next start racing in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Super One failed to make an impression that day however when crossing second last for his distant 11th nearly 13 lengths behind the Chris Waller-trained winner Japonisme.

He hasn’t raced again since, with a throat issue delaying his return, but will gallop on Wednesday before Freedman makes the call on whether to accept and run the up-and-comer first-up at Morphetville.

“There were just a couple of little niggling things that had to be sorted out … and that’s what stopped him running during the early part of the autumn,” Freedman told The Advertiser.

“His first run here in flying class as a spring three-year-old was pretty good … but he had a few issues after that.

“I’m going to gallop him on Wednesday and make my mind up.

“I’m sort of 50-50 at the moment because he may need another trial before he races.

“If he didn’t run on Saturday, he’d have another trial then head across for the McKay Stakes.

“He’s had about 10 weeks’ work but he might need another two weeks’ work before he runs.

“He had a very soft trial that got stuffed up a bit at Werribee which didn’t help things then he had a jumpout last Friday that he went quite well in but I think there’s a bit more improvement to come from him yet.”

The $120,000 Group 3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m) runs on May 7 and is a key lead-up to the $500,000 Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) back at Morphettville a fortnight later.

The last horse to win The Goodwood straight off a run in the DC McKay Stakes was Super Elegant (2nd) in 2004.

Team Freedman also have Victorian Derby third placegetter Nozomi nominated for the RN Irwin Stakes on Saturday, while two-year-old Redoute’s Choice filly Extra Olives could run in the $100,000 Listed Dequetteville Stakes (1050m).

“She’s a two-year-old winner and ran just behind the placings in the Blue Diamond Preview so we’ll probably send her over for Saturday,” Freedman said.
