Super Easy Stunning in Singapore Debut

Super Easy Stunning in Singapore Debut

The Michael Freedman trained Super Easy made a brilliant Singapore debut last night in the $55,000 Class 4 (1000m) race on the polytrack, winning by the easiest of five lengths.

Now a resident of the Singapore racing ranks, Super Easy (NZ) (Darci Brahma x Parfore) began his racing career under New Zealand trainer John Sargent. A winner of both of his trials in Cambridge in November last year, Super Easy showed his promise on the track when winning his debut at Trentham, beating the tough filly Planet Rock (Fastnet Rock) in the process.

His next race came in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes where he met the brilliant filly Anabandana (Anabaa) and, in a stride for stride battle down the Ellerslie straight, the filly took the honours by a nose.

His last start in New Zealand saw him notch up a brave fourth in New Zealand's richest two-year-old event, the Karaka Million, where he was trapped wide and ran a tough race before being run down in the shadows of the post.

Last night's return to the track has proven that his six month break from the races has done nothing to dampen his ability. Jumping in the lead for jockey Joao Moreira, Super Easy travelled beautifully in transit and was never challenged in the straight as he strode away effortlessly to record a five-and-three-quarter length victory over the field.

"He's a horse that has some good scope about him," said his trainer Michael Freedman, "so we will just take him along quietly and hopefully we will have a lot of fun with him.

"He's growing into a lovely sort of horse and if he continues to develop the way I think he will then he could be a lovely horse for the Three-Year-Old Series next year."

Super Easy is from the first crop of the five-time Group 1 winning son of Danehill in Darci Brahma whose first crop also includes the stakes winner Darci Be Good, the winner of the Listed Fernhill Handicap in Australia last season.

Super Easy was bred by M J Ryan and was offered by Esker Lodge at the 2010 Karaka Premier Sale where he was purchased by Blue Sky Thoroughbreds for $140,000. Raced by the Joy N Happiness Stable, Super Easy has now taken his stakes earnings to almost $100,000 from only four race starts.
