Global Freedom

Colt
DOB: 03 Apr 2016
Maxios x Modesty's Way (Giant's Causeway)
Owner: Dr Johnny Hon

Global Freedom is a son of Maxios, who won the Gr.1 Prix d'Ispahan and the Gr.1 Prix du Moulin. He had his first crop of racing age representing him last season, and managed to produce the smart colt Woodmax, who finished fourth in the Gr.1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, one place behind subsequent Derby winner Masar, and the smart German filly Suada, who was Gr.3-placed at two and finished fourth in the Gr.2 Geman 1,000 Guineas. 

The dam Modesty's Way is a daughter of Giant's Causeway, who is not only a Champion Sire in North America, but is also one the world's leading damsires. His daughters have produced the Gr.1 winners Sophie P, Hawkbill and Gun Runner this season alone.  Modesty's Way was herself a winner over an extended nine-furlongs in France, and is a member of the excellent Niarchos family featuring Gr.1 winners Chimes Of Freedom, Danon, Aldebaran etc. 

Global Freedom made his racecourse debut in a mile novice at Lingfield in November. He was slowly away, and raced towards the back of the field, before making a little effort into the home straight. He ultimately finished a well-beaten eighth, but it is hoped that a subsequent wind operation will allow him to show more in the future. He remains an interesting prospect for his three-year-old campaign.
