One to Watch
Artistic Design - the most expensive yearling by Group I winning Redoute’s Choice son Master of Design and a half-brother to dual Group I winner Trust in a Gust broke his maiden stylishly at Kilmore on Sunday. He finally had everything his way after a frustrating wait for the spring tracks to settle.
Trained by Lee and Anthony Freedman, Artistic Design was sent out favourite for the 1600 metre maiden at his third start having run well for fourth and second at Pakenham and Ballarat at his first two starts last month. He raced handy to the pace before kicking away to win by a length and three-quarters. A $300,000 Inglis Premier purchase for Lee Freedman/ Cameron Cooke Bloodstock from the Swettenham Stud draft, Artistic Design is the fourth winner for royally bred Storm Cat mare Subtle Breeze (USA). With his oldest progeny just three year-olds, Master of Design is the sire of three stakes horses and stands at Swettenham Stud at a fee of $15,000.
