   Freedom Child set the pace and ran a huge race to place second at 49-1 behind GI Kentucky Derby hero Orb (Malibu Moon) going a mile at the Big A Nov. 24. Freshened and stretched to 1 1/16 miles, the chestnut finished third behind Saint Vigeur and next out winner Wabbajack (Midnight Lute) at Gulfstream Feb. 9. He broke through with a decisive wire-to-wire tally over the promising Bellarmine (Magna Graduate) going nine furlongs in Hallandale Mar. 10. Off in a tangle after being held by an assistant starter in the Wood, he gave it a good go to reach contention, then tired to finish a well-beaten 10th while running for purse money only. Off a beat slow from his rail draw here, Freedom Child rushed up within his own restraint to show the way through fractions of :23.51 and :46.67, and dropped the hammer while drifting a bit through the stretch. "I think we’re going to go to the [GI] Belmont S. in about four weeks," West Point’s Terry Finley said. "I hope Orb runs well in the Preakness and the whole world is watching on [June 8] for the Belmont, and I hope we have the chance to upset the apple cart."
