INVINCIBLY got off the mark yesterday at Ayr in the Luxury Breaks At Western House Hotel Handicap (Div II) over a mile under a fine ride by Paul Mulrennan. The Karl Burke trained gelding has been a little frustrating in the past, he had a wind op after not producing the same level of form at 3 that he showed at 2. The operation seems to have done the trick having followed up his good second with a win. Paul Mulrennan was majestic on the 3yo gelding after making a decisive decision to go to the front early and control the race. The fractions were set perfectly and INVINCIBLY held on by a head from Tilsitt .We hope the result can give the horse some confidence and he can go on from here and back up the win. We would also like to thank Karl Burke who has always had faith in INVINCIBLY, he was our first winner with Karl lets hope there are more to come.
Dark Terms Won nicely at Kempton This evening when taking the Unibet Casino Deposit £10 Get £40 Bonus Nursery Handicap (Div II) over 6 furlongs by 3 1/4 lengths. She is a home bred filly out of our mare Her Terms and being Her Terms first foal sets her well on the way for a bright future as a broodmare. Dark Terms won well suggesting there could be more to come so we will see how she progresses. Dark Terms half brother yearling by Sea The Stars will be offered for sale at book 2 in Newmarket on October 11th, He is a compact well balanced individual who I assure you is a rocket so don't miss him.
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.
