Gallardise Rounds Off A good Day For AppleTree At Lingfield 05/08/20
Gallardise rounded off a good day for AppleTree at Lingfield yesterday, she made light work of a field of 11 runners over a 1m in the Betway Novice Median Auction Stakes. Popping out of the gates Gallardise made all to win by a comfortable 1 1/2 lengths reversing previous form with the Amy Murphy trained Emotional Moment. She is a full sister to AppleTree’s Gallaside and like him is a fine big horse. The way Gallardise won would make us think there is plenty to come from her as she was still a little green in front and only really did what she had to see off her rivals under the brilliant Hollie Doyle. Earlier on on the Lingfield card Archie Watson and Hollie Doyle did AppleTree another favor winning the Betway Novice Stakes with Perfect Crown (Hallowed Crown x Perfect fun). He is a half brother to our mare Absolute Blast (kodiac x Perfect Fun), the 3yo colt already has place black type but the way he won by 7 lengths from a 90 rated rival Aroha giving her 10lb suggests more black type is imminent.
