High regarded 3YO Bifrost (Turn Me Loose) made his Australian debut a winning one when successful at Pakenham in Victoria yesterday.

The strapping first-crop son of Champion Sprinter/Miler Turn Me Loose raced prominently in the 1200m event before drawing away at the finish for a comprehensive 3/4 length victory.
Bifrost had previously finished fourth on debut in New Zealand back in March and subsequently had a winning trial in July to prep him for his Australian success.

Co-trainer David Browne has loftier targets ahead for the good actioned colt who will now be aimed towards the 1400m Gr.3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude next month.

“It was nice to get that win”, commented Browne. “He was a little bit keen but now he’s had that run he should settle better.

“The trip away has helped him and he’s stronger than he was when he ran in the summer and has matured into a pretty nice 3YO”, said Browne.
Bred by Ben Kwok, Bifrost was a $40,000 Book 1 Karaka yearling sales purchase by Sparta Bloodstock from the draft of Windsor Park Stud
The win of Bifrost follows hard on the heels of another successful Turn Me Loose 3YO Ancient Girl, a A$150,000 Melbourne Premier Yearling sale graduate, who impressed with her winning debut at Ballarat a week ago.

Triple Gr.1 winning sprinter/miler Turn Me Loose (Iffraaj) has a number of other exciting first-crop 3YO’s ready to enhance the burgeoning reputation of their sire including unbeaten stakes winning 2YO Turn The Ace, Australian stakes performer Verbek and progressive galloper Me Liberez.
