NEWS & TIPS

Tomorrow’s Dream Makes Goodwood Glorious For AppleTree 28/07/20

Tomorrow's Dream (Oasis Dream x Midnight Thoughts) put up a fine performance to win the British European Breeders Fund EBF Fillies' Handicap over 1m at Glorious Goodwood today. She beat a competitive field breaking well to sit behind the leaders, before picking up nicely to win by a cozy 1 1/2 lengths form Angel  Power. We will have to wait and see what the handicapper does but I'm hoping we will hunt for some black type now which will be great for Tomorrow's Dream as a broodmare prospect and also her dam Midnight Thoughts, enhancing her page. Midnight Thoughts is already 3 winners from 3 foals, she has a Shalaa 2yo filly who will be out in the autumn and a lovely Kingman filly foal on the ground. the future looks bright for the family.

Tomorrow’s Dream Gets AppleTree Off The Mark For 2020 02/07/20

Tomorrow's Dream (Oasis Dream x Midnight Thoughts17) was a welcome winner on Tuesday night at Chepstow in the Blackwood Engineering Handicap over 7f. She gets us off the mark for 2020 and looks like she will progress. She was not 100% happy on the undulations of Chepstow and Tom Marquand did a fantastic job of keeping her balanced before producing her to win nicely by a length from Clive Cox's gelding Top Secret.
