Willie Mullins: Apple’s Jade hurdle victory is a dream come true
APPLE’S JADE moved to the top of the juvenile hurdle tree with a record 41-length victory in the Grade One Betfred Anniversary Hurdle.
Her trainer Willie Mullins said: “I couldn’t dream of anything like that.
“We were hoping to win, but that was quite extraordinary.
“When Bryan [Cooper] got off her he told me she still had plenty in the tank.”
Paddy Power make Apple’s Jade their 5-2 favourite for the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle at next year’s Cheltenham Festival.
