2015 Coolmore Stud Stakes Hope Super One Sees Straight

The Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Singaporean import Super One is shaping up as a livewire hope for Saturday week’s Coolmore Stud Stakes 2015 on Victoria Derby Day after a solid run down the famous Flemington straight this week.

A three-year-old son of I Am Invincible, the flying colt was put through his paces on the course proper at Flemington Racecourse on Friday by ace hoop Hugh Bowman who has a gun book of rides at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day including aboard the new $5 favourite Winx in the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m).

Having won four of his five career starts to date and finished second in the other, the super-consistent Super One raced in the second 800m heat of the morning alongside the Danny O’Brien-trained Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate winner Prompt Return in a sharp 45.16 seconds.

A dual black-type winner back in Singapore over 1200m earlier this year when ridden by Australian hoops Craig Newitt in May and Corey Brown in July respectively, Super One debuted down under at Cranbourne on October 11.

He suffered his first loss, Newitt in the saddle for his first-up run, when crossing three-quarters of a length off the Pat Carey-trained General Jackson in the $100,000 Apache Cat Classic (1000m) and is tipped to improve when he runs in Group 1 company for the first time next start.

The Freedmans have Super One earmarked for the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on October 31, a classic co-trainer Lee Freedman has won twice before with Encosta De Lago (1996) and Alinghi (2004).

Early Coolmore Stud Stakes betting for the stallion making sprint is firmly led by odds-on favourite Exosphere, John O’Shea’s Golden Rose winner also high up the markets to take on the older horses in the $1 million Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) on Emirates Stakes Day, November 7.

Other exciting three-year-olds well fancied to win this year’s Coolmore if Exosphere is absent from the field include the Blue Sapphire Stakes quinella of Keen Array and Mogador.

The winner Keen Array is a son of Bel Esprit prepared by David Hayes & Tom Dabernig while the nicely-bred Lonhro colt Mogador is a stablemate of Exosphere also trained by O’Shea and raced by Godolphin.

Super One meanwhile pays around $20 in the all-in Coolmore Stud Stakes odds, a decent price according to stable rep Michael Freedman who said the horse was improving steadily after his Cranbourne run.

“I think the outing at Cranbourne brought him on a bit,” he told Racenet.

“He had a bit of an interrupted preparation leading into it so I’m glad he went there and had the run.

“He’d had six days in his box in quarantine in Singapore because of government restrictions before he got here.”

Freedman was also pleased with the colt’s first look at Flemington, Super One showing an affinity for the long straight.

“It was a bit of both, the race at Cranbourne obviously blew the cobwebs out and this morning was what he needed,” he said on Friday.

 

“He went up the straight nice and didn’t deviate too much which was pleasing so it’s all systems go for Derby day.”
