about dream


Dream Thoroughbreds was developed by a group of high school mates that grew up enjoying the thrill and excitement of horse racing.

They joined together to develop a syndicate of friends to own and race horses together. Win or lose they have enjoyed many fun filled days at the racetrack.

Their syndicate horses have progressed from country to city racetracks, where they again enjoyed and celebrated victories with family and friends.

Their Dream was to extend the fun and enjoyment to include a wider network of friends and race better quality horses with quality trainers for a low and manageable cost.

During the Spring of 2010 Dream Thoroughbreds was established as an incorporated entity, and developed a strategic partnership with the Freedman Brothers stable to select, buy and race thoroughbreds.


To become Australia’s best syndicators at providing a fun, exciting and unique horse racing ownership experience that can be enjoyed with family and friends as we all ‘Live the Dream’ together.

He has been in integral part of the vast Freedman Racing operation since the mid-1980 Late in 1992, Anthony pioneered the Freedman brothers’ first foray interstate, when he opened a stable at Randwick. In that first year in Sydney, Anthony (under Lee’s licence) prepared Bint Marscay to win the 1993 Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes.

The main training base is located at Flemington, where most horses are prepared for raceday.
With both environments, all horses are able to achieve their potential. Anthony’s achievements see him with 2 favoured runners in the 2018 Everest run on 13 October 2018.

richard & WILL freedman,
a golden partnership!

Richard Freedman is well known for his success with the Freedman brothers in the 80s and 90s. the second oldest brother behind his older brother – Australian Racing Hall of Famer Lee Freedman.

During their 20-year training partnership, the Freedman stable was one of Australia’s most prominent preparing over 100 Group 1 winners, including the Melbourne Cup on five occasions, as well as four consecutive Golden Slipper winners.

Richard Freedman’s history as a trainer stretches back to the ‘70s when he trained his first winner at Canberra at age 18 years old – at the time believed to be the youngest ever professional trainer to train a winner in Australian Racing history.

After 15 successful years covering racing and professional sport, Richard returned to the training ranks in 2017.Richard now oversees the Rosehill stables of Freedman Training.

He was joined by his son William Freedman, who has trained in his own right at Scone, in a training partnership that add experience and youthfulness to the training partnership.

They have quickly developed themselves into the top 10 trainers within the Sydney training ranks with training facilities at Rosehill and now Hawkesbury.



Tony as a teenager had close ties to the stable run by his father Darryl and he was a keen follower of form often attending Clifford Park races.
Despite some words of warning from his dad Tony took out a trainer’s licence when he was 20. He had a team of four horses and the confidence of youth.
His first winner was Carbon Shadow at Clifford Park. He secured his first metropolitan winner with Nova Serrure. At that time Tony, aged 22, let his natural ambitious instincts rule his head. He set up a stable in Brisbane. He enjoyed some early success and soon had a stable of 14 horses but it was shortlived.
Tony headed back to Toowoomba and renewed his close ties to Darryl. He spent the next year soaking up knowledge from Darryl and legendary trainer Jim Atkins. It was an invaluable learning curve.
Tony revived his own training business in 2003. A stroke of good fortune gave his return some early momentum. Eureka Stud father-son combination Colin and Scott McAlpine gave him a Special Dane filly which they named Temple Spirit. The filly was a great success on the track, winning eight races. Temple Spirit became the Dam of Spirit Of Boom and Temple Of Boom, who gave him tremendous success. Spirit of Boom took him to Group 1 success in the 2014 William Reid Stakes & 2014 Doomben 10,000.
Tony Gollan continues to exceed in Brisbane at his base in Eagle Farm He continually notches up winners, and has won the last 8 Metropolitan Trainers Premierships by big margins.
His base at Eagle Farm is state of the art, and with the much anticipated re-opening of Eagle Farm racetrack, Tony has all the facilities to match it with his eastern counterparts.
Tony is the Dream trainer you need to build our Queensland partnership!
