Apple Away is a 6-year-old bay mare by Arctic Cosmos and out of Dr A Day.
Apple Away finished 2nd on her Point-to-Point debut and 4th on her next outing. It was the third time lucky for her when seeing off a field of ten others at Ballyknock.
Apple Away took to Rules Racing incredibly well and progressed impressively through her first season.
She has now run seven times over hurdles; winning four times, finishing 2nd once and third once (meaning she has only been out of the top three once!). One thing is for sure, Apple Away can jump, gallop and stay out a trip.
She got some Black Type on her page when winning a Listed race at Doncaster and finished off her season in style when winning the Sefton Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1) at Aintree.

Apple Away has just returned from a well-deserved summer holiday and has taken back to training with her usual enthusiasm. Lucinda and ‘Scu’ are in the process of deciding which route to go down with her this season. It could be that she remains in the hurdling division for another year or that we look to move over fences.
Regardless of which direction we go, it should be another thrilling year for this superstar mare. As Lucinda put it: ‘We’ve got Apple on our side. That’s all we need.’
