Finally some action as SHERBET LEMON gave us all a sweet shot here at AppleTree, by winning the Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Fillies’ Novice Stakes (Class 5) (1m5yds) for Archie Watson by 3l from previous winner SKULK, under a fine educational ride from Hollie Doyle. We bought the filly in the USA at Keeneland yearling sales in 2019 on the advice of Federico Barberini. Fed came across her and considered she may not make her value, although by Lemon Drop Kid (USA) she has a European pedigree. SHERBET LEMON is a big filly with a huge future being out of Famous a full sister to MASTER CRAFTSMAN, and a half Sister to Melbourne cup 3rd Il Paradiso in her own right. She has taken time and will probably grow and fill out again. We will have to mind her a little and will be guided by Archie with what to do next. A step up in trip will be a certainty and we are excited to see her progress. She is an Exciting broodmare prospect whatever happens.
