Anthony Freedman gets on the b
Brad Waters - Friday, 19 August 2011

Anthony Freedman earned his first win since taking over the Markdel operation when Boredom held on to claim the GRC Function & Event Centre Maiden Plate (1900m) at Friday's Geelong Synthetic meeting.

Freedman assumed control of the Mornington Peninsula stable after his older brother Lee's shock decision to stand down as head trainer of the family business earlier this month.

Jockey Daniel Moor gave Boredom a comfortable run behind the leader before the three-year-old gained an inside run on the home turn, which proved enough to enable the filly to hold on to score narrowly.

The daughter of Ad Valorem beat Miss Funny Money by a nose with Strogar in third.

Boredom was the sixth runner to compete in Anthony Freedman's name this season. Freedman prepared four runners of his own in the 2004-05 period.

As reported on Racenet on Thursday, Freedman could have a Caulfield and Melbourne Cup contender in his first season as a full-time trainer after Australian Bloodstock enlisted the trainer's services to prepare German purchase Lucas Cranach.
