SINGAPORE:  May 26, 2018

MR CLINT, who came from a long way back to finish second to BEE BEE in the Group 3 Singapore 3YO Sprint (1200m) but failed to fire in the 3YO Classic (1400m), finally got it right to claim the S$1mil Singapore Guineas (1600m) at Kranji here today.

With a change of rider to the visiting jockey Zac Purton, the New Zealand gelding again settled well back in the field but came charging home in the final 200m to win drawing away by one length.

It was the fourth win in nine starts for MR CLINT who was originally purchased and trained by Laurie Laxon but transferred to Lee Freedman before making his debut. It's the first group 1 win for Freedman in Singapore since coming here last September.

"Itís a great thrill to win a Group 1 race here in Singapore. Weíre here now and thatís what we have to do: Win these big races here, too,Ē said Freedman. "This horse (MR CLINT) is not the greatest here, but heís an honest sort."

"I didnít expect he would show a bit of speed early, even if he was overracing a little," said Purton. "I was able to put him back and he relaxed nicely for me from thereon in. He pinged in the home straight and was just too good."

MR CLINT, who cost NZ$95,000 at the Ready To Run sale. has now won four times in nine starts.
