NEWS & TIPS

Inchicore Scores At Leicester 06/10/20

INCHICORE Scored at Leicester this afternoon in the Coors Handicap over 1m4f. She beat the 13/8 favorite Wise Glory by 1 1/4 lengths after travelling well through out the race in testing conditions under champion jockey Oisin Murphy. INCHICORE looks like a filly that can progress and will probably have one more run this season before perusing her 4yo career next season. She will also be a welcome addition to AppleTree's broodmare band being by the all conquering GALILEO and out of a LUAS LINE a G1 Winning mare at the end of her racing career.

Another Home Bred Winner For AppleTree 12/08/20

Surprise Exhibit (Showcasing x Astonishing) became the 4th individual home bred winner from 5 runners for AppleTree today when our 2 yo colt won the British Stallion Studs EBF Whiston Maiden Stakes over 1M at Wolverhampton. The 5th horse and the only 1 not to win from the Quintet of runners is Surprise Exhibit's half brother Gold Maze, he is 103 rated maiden and runs at the Curragh on Friday. Surprise Exhibit made all to win by a comfortable 3 3/4 lengths from Envega, the race on paper looked interesting as there were some well bred individuals taking part in the form of King Frankel who is a full brother to 116 rated EMINENT and Summer Power a half brother to 112 rated MILDENBERGER. Archie has suggested an entry in the listed Stone Henge Stakes at Salisbury on Friday week providing he comes out of his race well.
