Well-bred 2YO Paris wins Cranbourne maiden

By AAP Newswire

Well-bred filly Paris has broken her maiden at Cranbourne and added to the Anthony Freedman stable's list of two-year-old winners for the season.

A daughter of stallion Snitzel out of the mare Court, Paris is a half-sister to now-retired Group One winner English and the filly broke through at her fourth start in a 1000m maiden against her own age and sex on a heavy track on Wednesday.

Paris had her first two starts for Sydney trainer Clarry Conners and was a luckless third at Moe in her first start for the Freedman stable last month before winning Wednesday's race by one-length win under start jockey Ben Melham.

"He just let her find her feet and it was good to see her with some clear running in the straight and she showed a really nice turn of foot," assistant trainer Sam Freedman told broadcaster Racing.com.

The Freedman stable's two-year-olds, headlined by Group One Blue Diamond Stakes winner Lyre, have now won a combined 18 races during the 2018/19 season, which concludes at the end of this month, with Paris the 12th individual winner from the age group.

"It's been a really good year and hopefully there's one or two more to come," Sam Freedman said.
