Freedom Child Strong in Belmont Stakes 2013 Move

Freedom Child turned in his first breeze since romping in Belmont Park’s Grade 2 Peter Pan earlier this month, covering five furlongs over the main track Monday morning in 59.87 under exercise rider John Mason.

 

“I thought he went super,” said Tom Albertrani, who trains the Malibu Moon ridgling for West Point Thoroughbreds, St. Elias Stable, and Spendthrift Farm. “The rider sat there with a nice hold of him and he looked like he was just galloping down the lane. We just wanted to let him go in hand. Typically he can get aggressive when he’s feeling good, so the rider had a nice hold of him early on. It looked like he was just running through the bridle the first three-eighths, and he just gave him a little slack down the lane. He responded well and did it all nice and easy.”

 

Albertrani said he was considering an easy workout for the ridgling before the June 8 Belmont Stakes.

 

“This week he’ll just do some light galloping and maybe a real easy work next time or a good strong gallop out. I just don’t want him to do too much on top of the race. Today was a pretty strong work, so we’ll just kind of let him get there.”
