It’s a tried and true method – buy a horse from Europe, bring it to Australia and cash in by winning our Group Ones.
Lee and Anthony Freedman are hoping the recipe for success works with their newest purchase Ivanhowe, with the multiple Group One winner from Germany targeting The Championships’ $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes in April.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has installed Ivanhowe equal fourth favourite at $11. Cox Plate winner Adelaide and Japanese runner To The World head the betting at $6.00 ahead of Melbourne Cup winner, and another former German, Protectionist at $7.00.
“The Freedmans have big plans for Ivanhowe and it’s not hard to see why. The five-year-old has won 5 of his 10 starts and has competed in the Prix de l’arc de Triomphe and the Japan Cup,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
