Australian Hall of Fame trainer Lee Freedman has not taken too long to visit the winner’s enclosure at his new base in Singapore.

Newly-licensed at Kranji from September 1, the five-time Melbourne Cup-winning trainer saddled his first runners on Friday night, but unfortunately did not get off to a dream start with his team of four runners.

Fans did not have to wait too long as his very next runner, debutant Mr Clint (Craig Grylls) was the one to etch the Freedman name back on the winner’s list in the $75,000 Spalato 2015 Stakes, a Restricted Maiden race over 1200m.
