Richard and Michael Freedman are now a partnership again, Richard training the older horses out of Rosehill while Michael nurtures the younger horses from the Randwick stables. Their family history in racing goes back 4 generations to their great grandfather Bill “Midge” McLachlan who rode 3 Melbourne Cup winners.

As a team headed by eldest brother Lee, Richard, Michael and Anthony Freedman combined to carve out their own place in thoroughbred history, winning 5 Melbourne Cups, 5 Caulfield Cups, 2 Cox Plates and 4 consecutive Golden Slippers, in a tally stretching over 100 Group 1 victories.
