The Melbourne Cup Carnival just keeps getting better for Ballarat trainer Mitch Freedman.
Bravo Tango ($8) gave Freedman his second big result of the carnival by taking out the $125,000 Grinders Coffee Roasters Trophy, 1400m on Tuesday.
Freedman saddled up Southern Moon for second in Saturday's Victoria Derby.
And there might still be more to come, with highly fancied Moonlight Maid in Thursday's group 1 $1m Victoria Oaks, 2500m.
Bravo Tango, which won by a short neck, now has six wins from 17 starts for $265,150.
Freedman said the five-year-old had been pretty frustrating.
"He was the one time favourite for the Australian Guineas and he hasn't quite lived up to the expectations. but we put this race in the book again after last year when he was disappointing.
"We really targeted it. A great ride from Billy (Egan). He got him out of the barriers which is the key to him.," Freedman said.
