Australian trainer Michael Freedman toyed with the idea following the three-year-old's stunning win in the Singapore Guineas (1600m) in May, but outlined a much different spring program after claiming the Paititi Gold Trophy (1200m) yesterday.
Freedman said Super Easy
would contest the Group 3 Jumbo Jet Trophy (1400m) in September in preparation for the Group 1 Kranji Mile on October 7.
“The Jumbo Jet and the Kranji Mile are his next two likely targets with the Raffles Cup a possibility,” Freedman told the Singapore Turf Club.
“If his form warrants it then we would consider going to Hong Kong at the end of the year for the International Mile race.”
Super Easy's weekend win was his 12th from 14 starts, although his first three races were in New Zealand for trainer John Sargent.
Since joining Freedman in Singapore he's unbeaten, and now sits just one win off Better Than Ever
's record of 12 consecutive victories.
“I've been involved with a lot of great horses over the years including back home in Australia, but this horse would be right up there with them,” Freedman said.
“The more wins you have on the trot the more you worry about things not working out.
“It is always a concern coming back to the 1200m after running at 1600m last time and that did have me worried as there were some very good sprinters in the field.
“But this horse has a great turn of foot and today I would say that was probably one of his more dominant wins.
“He's just a great horse to train. He can camp on them in a six-furlong race or you can ride him back over a mile and he can still get over them.”
