Leading Melbourne trainer Lee Freedman says Super Impose is
a "sure thing" to be inducted to the Australian Racing Hall of Fame, but he's
just not sure when.
Freedman said his former mile champion and Cox Plate hero
had earned his place to be recognised with inaugural Hall of Fame inductees Phar Lap,
Kingston Town, Bernborough, Carbine and Tulloch.
"He'll definitely be there," Freedman said
referring to Super Impose being inducted to the Australian Racing Hall of Fame. "It
may not be this year, but he has to be there."
The only horse to win back to back runnings of both the
Epsom and Doncaster Handicaps in Sydney (the first with 57kg), Super Impose then became
the oldest winner of the Cox Plate when he won the Australasian weight-for-age
championship as an eight-year-old in 1992.
"He definitely goes in," Freedman added.
"Super Impose was a great champion."
The industry continues to be abuzz with talk about which
horses and people will be the second group inducted to the Hall of Fame at Tuesday's
Australian Racing Champions night at Crown Palladium.
Other people who look to have their chance in then light
include trainers Angus Armanasco and Theo Green, associates the Wootton family,
commentator John Tapp and journalist Bert Lillye and jockeys Jack Purtell, Neville
Sellwood, Jim Pike and Pat Glennon.
Horses who must come into contention would include
Manikato, Durbridge, Wakeful, Ajax, Vain, Gloaming, Octagonal, Peter Pan, Gunsynd, Rain
Lover, Archer, Wenona Girl, Better Loosen Up and Tobin Bronze.
