Bravo Tango’s win in the Grinders Coffee Roasters Trophy was Mitchell Freedman’s only win on Melbourne Cup day, but it capped off a strong spring for the trainer. The highlight for Freedman was the Edward Manifold Stakes, which he won with Moonlight maid.

The 1400m Flemington track record stands at 1:20.60, which Lovey clocked way back in 1992. Bravo Tango won the 2019 edition of the Grinders Coffee Roasters Trophy in 1:23.78 and although it was a solid time it wasn’t close to Lovey’s record.
