THREE-year-old chestnut filly A.P.I. (the shortened form of Appleton, Pepsi and Ice) continues to impress trainer Anthony Nunes, especially after she won her second consecutive race last Saturday at Caymanas Park in a Restricted Allowance event for non-winners of two (fillies only) over the five straight (1,000m) course.

The Blue Pepsi Lodge - Regina Royale offspring, after winning a six-and-a-half furlong (1,300m) maiden race on August 16 in a time of 1:21.1, returned over the five-straight course and beat rivals by over four lengths in 1:00.3 with Wesley Henry in the saddle.

She wasn’t asked to do much by Henry, winning easily ahead of Princess Katriel, Aurelia’s Summer– another Nunes inmate – and Taz, in that order. “She [A.P.I.] is a nice filly.

She was turned out to the farm from she was young as she had an injury, and we brought her back to the races.

She is doing well and the hope is that she will continue to do so. We are taking it one step at a time, that is what we are doing, but I am pleased thus far,” Nunes told the Supreme Racing Guide. A.P.I is owned by Stephan Narinesingh.
