Gallaside A First Royal Runner For AppleTree 18/06/20

We are excited to say Gallaside (Lucayan x Gallaecia 17) will be a first runner for AppleTree at Royal Ascot in the 3yo only Golden Gates Handicap over 1m2f at 1.15 this afternoon. He has been a fun horse for us winning 3 races last year and being placed twice. It is going to be a tough task as you would expect but we are confident of a good run, work reports have been great from Archie. He is running over the same trip 1m2f as his only disappointing run last season at Nottingham. After discussions with Archie we are sure the run at Notts can be put down to the end of a long year with it being his 6th run of his 2yo season. The ground was also slow at Notts as it is likely to be this afternoon but we are confident he will handle it after growing in to his frame, Gallaside is a fine big horse now. Win, loose or draw we will learn something and it is fantastic to have a runner at the most prestigious event of the summer. Hollie Doyle takes the ride again, we dare to dream.
