Press Freedom is a very nicely put together, well related Filly.

She is by ARTIE SCHILLER out of the Winning SNIPPETSON Mare PRESS CLUB. PRESS CLUB is Half-sister to Listed Winner SUNRISE SILENCE, Group 2 Placed Royal Integrity and 5 x Winner and multiple Listed Placed Discretion (dam of Group 3 Winner ROYAL DISCRETION and Listed Winner ROULETTES).

Press Freedom is screaming out for a dry track!

She has only had the 7 starts to date, where she ran 2nd to talented 3x winner LONDON RULER over 1110ms and 4th over 1400ms in her only two starts on a GOOD track.

She hasn't been disgraced in her other runs, but she definitely appreciates a good surface.

Press Freedom is good to handle, shoe and float.

She has only had the 1 start back after having a let up.
