Life Story & Timeline

2017

In mid-2017 Freedman moved to Singapore to train horses there, taking over the stables of New Zealand-born Laurie Laxon . Lee trained the winner of the 2018 Group 1 Singapore Guineas, Mr. Clint.

2014

In November 2014 Freedman announced he was returning to training, in partnership with Anthony , with stables at Flemington and Pinecliff, on the Mornington Peninsula. The pair’s most successful horses in this period were sprinters Shoals and Santa Ana Lane. In 2017/8 Shoals won four Group 1 races including the Thousand Guineas and Myer Classic in Victoria and the Surround Stakes in Sydney.

2011

Following a decline in success for Freedman Brothers, Lee Freedman retired from training in August, 2011. He later admitted the strain of failure had impacted heavily on his personal life. Lee’s brothers Anthony and Michael took over training duties at Markdel. Over the ensuing three years, Freedman held various positions in the racing industry including director of racing for Lloyd Williams’s Macedon Lodge, a training partnership with Sydney-based Graeme Rogerson and an advisor to Sir Peter Vela’s Pencarrow Stud in New Zealand. During this period, Michael Freedman moved to Singapore and Anthony departed Markdel, transferring his training operation to Flemington.

2006

As of 2006 Freedman is regarded as Victoria’s premier horse trainer, and along with Bart Cummings, Gai Waterhouse, David Hayes and John Hawkes, among Australia’s best.

In the 2006-7 season the Freedman-trained sprinter Miss Andretti won four G1 races (the Manikato, Lightning and Australia Stakes and the Newmarket Handicap) and placed in two others. In June 2007 Miss Andretti won the G2 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot, in course record time.

2004

Freedman took over the training of Makybe Diva in 2004, after David Hall left to take up a position in Hong Kong. Freedman took an already Melbourne Cup winner and emerging superstar, winning a BMW, an Australian Cup and a Cox Plate with her. Freedman’s greatest training achievement is winning the 2004 and 2005 Melbourne Cup’s with ‘The Diva’, taking her to a total of three wins in the Cup, which has never been done in more than 150 years of the race. Makybe Diva was retired after winning her third Melbourne Cup in November 2005.

2003

This resurgence has been best symbolised by outstanding fillies Alinghi and Special Harmony, classy stayer Mummify, and champion mare Makybe Diva. In 2003 Lee Freedman joined the ranks of Australia’s all-time greats when he was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame.

Mummify was one Freedman’s favourite horses. Unfashionably bred, he managed to win a South Australian Derby as a three-year-old, but his effort to win the Caulfield Cup in 2003, leading all the way, was by far his greatest. Mummify’s other significant wins were in the 2004 Yalumba Stakes, and 2005 Singapore Airlines International Cup. Mummify was killed in the 2005 Caulfield Cup, when he broke a bone in his leg, and had to be euthanised.

2000

After the 2000 Melbourne Cup Carnival, during which the stable won only one listed race, Freedman decided to radically change his training set-up. Lee’s brother Richard purchased a large piece of land, near Rye, on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. This was named Markdel, after Freedman’s intellectually disabled older brother Mark, and mother Del. It is a state of the art private training facility, which is believed to be largely responsible for his recent resurgence.

1997

The Encosta De Lago affair happened to coincide with a decline in the stable’s fortunes, although the main reason is more likely the unsuccessful move to Caulfield Racecourse, from Flemington. Between the 1997-98 and 2002-2003 seasons, Freedman trained only fifteen Group One winners. Although by many measures this would be regarded as successful, it was an extremely poor run compared with mid-1990s, where in 1995-96 alone Freedman trained 13 Group One winners.

1996

Another scandal to hit Freedman involved his outstanding three-year-old, Encosta De Lago, before the Bill Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley in September 1996. The colt returned a test over the legal limit to the performance-enhancing substance TC02, or bicarbonate. A second test confirmed the result, however a third was ordered, which was also over the legal limit, but within the accepted margin of error. Encosta De Lago was allowed to run, and won the race easily. Although no action was taken against Freedman, it would be a significant distraction to the stable.

1995

In this time Freedman was not immune from controversy. In March 1995 he was found guilty of substituting a horse in a barrier trial. To gain permission to run a horse, Central Express, in blinkers, it was necessary for it to run in a barrier trial, to demonstrate that the horse could properly run in them. Forced to run the trial the day before a race, Freedman substituted in another runner, Spanish Reign, for the trial. As such, Central Express ran in blinkers in the race, and duly won. Although Freedman said the substitution was for a good reason, not wanting to ‘flatten’ his horse before the race, he was suspended for four months. In this period, his brother Richard took over as trainer.

1989

Freedman’s step towards training stardom came in the 1989 Melbourne Cup, when he trained the first two runners home, winning the race with stayer Tawrrific, ridden by Shane Dye, who was followed home by Super Impose. ‘Super’, as he was affectionately known, won eight Group One races, including the Epsom Handicap and Doncaster Handicap twice. His most famous victory was in the 1992 Cox Plate as an eight-year-old. Super Impose’s form had been disappointing that spring, and was in the twilight of his career. The hot favourite for the race was another Freedman horse, the classy Naturalism. At around the 600m mark, Naturalism was involved in a fall. Super Impose charged home from last to win by a head, defeating 1991 Melbourne Cup heroine Let’s Elope.
