Cadmus’ barnstorming victory in the last race at Sandown on Saturday was not only thoroughly impressive but also marked Anthony Freedman’s 1000th win as a trainer.

Anthony, the third eldest of the Freedman clan, established his own stables at the start of the 2012/13 season.

Before his son Sam joined him in partnership in 2020, he initially trained with his brother Lee for a few years.

Freedman celebrated two winners on Saturday, with Arqana securing his 999th win before Cadmus brought up the milestone.

Jye McNeil, who rode both horses, expressed his delight to at being part of Freedman’s landmark achievement.

“Congratulations to the team on the 1,000 winners, it’s a great achievement, and great to contribute,” McNeil said.

“I’ve ridden for them off and on for a long time now; it’s been a great ride and hopefully, it can continue.”
