Freedom Child Targets Jim Dandy

Freedom Child, electrifying 13 ¼-length winner of the Grade 2 Peter Pan, is being pointed toward his first start since the Belmont Stakes in the Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy on July 27.

 

Owned by West Point Thoroughbreds, the son of Malibu Moon raced with the pace in the 1 ½-mile Belmont before fading to finish 13th behind winner Palace Malice. Trainer Tom Albertrani said Friday morning he likes the way Freedom Child has bounced back and hasn’t lost any confidence in the colt.

 

“He was on the front end; they were going pretty quick,” Albertrani said. “I thought maybe the first part of the race might have been a little quick for him, but Palace Malice was only a length behind us and he went on and won; either that or maybe our horse didn’t want to go that far. He kind of lasted for a good mile and an eighth before he faded.

 

“As well as he ran in the Peter Pan, if he comes back and runs that similar race, he’s going to be right back where he was. I can’t make much out of the Belmont, really. I’m not going to discredit him off of that race. The way he’s been working since came back from the Belmont, I’ve got a lot of confidence in the horse.”
