Like father like son. Richard Freedman has now been joined in his training partnership with his well-qualified son Will and the NSW Tycoons are delighted to have them.
Their family history in racing goes back four 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.
Richard and Will are now a great combination of ‘old school knowledge and experience’ and ‘new ideas along with the use of cutting edge technology’ to gain the best possible outcome for their horses. Richard and Will are entertaining communicators who keep Tycoons owners up to date on their two horses Luna Rocks and Etched In Time.
