Experiencing an outstanding season with his progeny on the track, Foxwedge added his 19th individual stakes winner over the weekend when the lightly raced Sacred Magnate won the Listed Macau Derby (1800m), the second leg of the Macau Triple Crown.
Fourth in the Listed Macau Guineas (1st Leg of the Macau Triple Crown) at his prior start, the Joe Lau-trained 4YO settled in a midfield position before making a strong run as the field rounded the final turn and sprinted for home. Charging between runners, the Matthew Sandblom-bred runner scored by a short half head in the local Group 1 contest.
One of 15 black type performers this season for the Group 1-winning son of Champion Sire Fastnet Rock, headed by Group 2 winner Run Fox Run, a narrower runner-up last time out in the Group 1 South African Fillies Sprint at Scottsville, Foxwedge’s yearlings have sold up to 20 times his service fee this year, purchased by the likes of Ciaron Maher Racing, Freedman Brothers, McEvoy Racing, Belmont Bloodstock, David Ellis, David Vandyke, Darby Racing and Malua Racing to name a few.
With the spring on our door step, we await the first Victorian conceived crop of Foxwedge to arrive on the ground, while on the track the likes of Group 2 winner Lunar Fox is sure to once again fly the flag for his sire.
Representing outstanding value, Foxwedge will stand for $11,000 (inc. GST) in 2020. For any further information on Foxwedge or to discuss your 2020 mating plans, please contact Tom Rowsthorn on 0400 553 621.
