24-01-20 Gelding has brought about big change this month, he’s a completely different horse now hassle free.


Apache loose

..and this is Apache Free dropping his rider at the start of the canter past and getting loose on the track. He was eventually caught and gated after delaying the start but things went further downhill from there with an even worse performance in the race. Gelding comes next.

Apache Free send location

Apache Free ticking over like a time bomb waiting for a date and venue. The barrier trial he drew 1 in next week (Fri) got cancelled due to lack of support (not enough runners). He's nominated in the next 3 barriers (22nd | 26th | 29th) but the first two have attracted minimal support again and are in danger collapsing. No barrier trial, no racing, that's the current rule for unraced horses.
