Sprinter/Miler type of Filly – will be trained in Victoria by Anthony/Sam Freedman – note she is registered for the Inglis Race series with total Bonuses on offer of A$12.55m in the 2024/25 season

Lot 43  – the Yearling Filly by the proven Stallion XTRAVAGANT out of SECRET SPICE (By  Sakhees Secret) has been acquired by  Fortuna Racing  from the 2023 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale – this after Fortuna’s John Galvin, assisted by Bloodstock Agent, Marcus Corban had conducted their normal thorough pre sale inspections

Melbourne Trainer, Anthony Freedman, who along with his son, Sam Freedman, will train this filly commented after doing pre sale Video inspections “Athletic type of good size, lovely walk, physically correct, will need a bit of time to fully mature but will make a lovely Spring 3yo

“Spicy”  – the Xtravagant – Secret Spice Yearling Filly


Spicy has a very strong  pedigree. Her Sire, Xtravagant was a top class Sprinter/Miler, winning six times from 12 starts – A Champion New Zealand 3YO and dual Group One winner, Xtravagant was a breathtaking racehorse with phenomenal speed. His eight-length win on debut as a two-year-old was incredible, then his record breaking victories in the Guineas and the Waikato Sprint against older horses (beating five individual Group One winners) were of the highest class. Xtravagant has made a heady start to his Stud career, with 36 individual winners, including the Stakeswinners Lavish Girl, Xtravagant Star and He’s Exceptional.

Her dam, Secret Spice won seven times in Singapore and Malaysia and her dam, Caparison, won 5 times and was Stakes placed.

Physical type

A leggy, athletic Filly of good size, “Spicy” is physically correct, has a lovely temperament, has a lithe, athletic walk and passed her pre sale Vet exam without issue – Click HERE to her parading  Pre Sale

Syndicator’s view (John Galvin)

“Having raced the dam, Secret Spice, we were keen to have a close look at this Filly, she had very clean x rays, flew through her Vet inspection without issue – she will need a bit of time to grow into herself and presents more of a 3yo type, but that suits our philosophy and style – we had a budget of A$60k to buy her and she was knocked down to us for A$40k, so represents great value”

Trainer’s view (Anthony Freedman)

Asked by John Galvin to inspect this Xtravagant Filly at the Inglis Classic Sale, my assessment of her was that she is a tall leggy type who will need a bit of time, may run as an Autumn 2yo, but should develop into a lovely 3yo. She has a graceful walk and a great temperament. I am looking forward to having her in our stable”

Selectors view (Marcus Corban)

“This Filly is a lovely first foal out of a very good racemare  – she has a smooth, fluid action at the walk, won’t be an early type but will develop into a nice athletic 3yo – this Filly represents great value at her purchase price”

Ongoing Preparation

Spicy is now spelling at the Freedman spelling farm on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, ahead of being broken in (estimate commencement early April)  and will then be prepared for racing at the Stables of Anthony/Sam Freedman. Her first stable preparation will be short (2 – 3 weeks) – she will then have a further paddock spell to enable further growth and maturity and Anthony and Sam will assess her in the Spring of 2023 in order to map out an ongoing trials/race plan for her. She may well have a start or two as a 2yo in the Autumn of 2024, but the lucrative 3yo Fillies races in Melbourne in the Spring of 2024 will be her prime objective. Note that prizemoney in Australia is going from strength to strength, particularly in NSW and Victoria, hence our decision to have this Filly trained in Australia

Connections of a winner of a designated Maiden will receive the $100,000 bonus if the horse is an Inglis graduate and paid up for the Inglis Race Series.

The new concept will see the Inglis Race Series jump to $12.55m in the 2024/25 Australian racing season as all existing races – Inglis Millennium, Inglis Sprint, Inglis Banner, Inglis Nursery, Inglis Bracelet and Inglis Challenge – as well as the Inglis Pink Bonuses will remain.

As part of the Inglis Xtra Bonus Series, 50 Maidens will be selected to carry the bonus with a focus on NSW and Victoria, while bonuses are also planned for Queensland.

The Maidens will range from 900m to 2000m and be for eligible 3YO and up horses.

Inglis Bloodstock CEO Sebastian Hutch believed the new Maiden Series would incentivise every buyer, starting at the Classic Sale this coming weekend.

“As we mentioned with the introduction of the Pink Bonus 12 months ago, we are always looking at ways to develop our Race Series,” Hutch said.

“This initiative gives investors through our sales the opportunity to win more prizemoney, more often.

“The respective racing authorities have done an incredible job driving increases in prizemoney, particularly at the top end – there will be 89 races for $1m or more in Australia in 2023 – and we wanted to enhance our Race Series with a concept that complemented those top-level increases.

“The hardest race for a horse to win is their Maiden and not all horses get to the top level so we believe this new concept will give every buyer and owner an opportunity to win extraordinary prizemoney at the entry level of racing.

“Effectively, owners will have the opportunity to win ‘Inglis’ prizemoney every week of the year and the plan is for these races to be everywhere, from major country carnivals to midweek metro to provincial and everything in between.

“$100,000 is going to be an enormous carrot for owners of eligible horses and we are expecting the designated Maidens to be targeted and bonuses to be won regularly through the 2024/25 season and beyond.’’

The Inglis Xtra Bonus Series will be for horses born in 2021 and beyond that are paid up for the Inglis Race Series.

The specific races themselves will be confirmed once the 2024/25 Australian racing season schedule is released next year.



The Sam and Anthony Freedman operation does not train a large number of horse, by comparison with other leading Victorian Stables – currently they have 75 horses in work over their two Stable operations, Flemington and Pinecliff.

In the current season to date they have trained 36 winners at a strike rate of around 15% (6.6)

In 2021, we sent our UK import, the Stayer NO ENVY, whom we had acquired at the Tattersalls Horse In Training Sale, to the Freedmans to be trained and he won a race very quickly for them, however subsequently damaged a tendon and had to be retired. Our experience with them was very positive with high quality horsemanship and regular communications and updates.
