#PROVENPROGENY

With his oldest progeny only seven, Fastnet Rock’s extremely talented Group 1-winning son Foxwedge, the Champion Second Season Sire of his year, is a stallion that has so much more to offer, and with his move to Victoria, the opportunities for not only local, but international breeders, are endless.

With Group 1 winners in three different countries, and 45 stakes performers in total, the progeny of Foxwedge have clearly shown their global appeal through his impressive looking, precocious yearlings, who continue to train on.

James Price, CEO at Woodside Park Stud said: “Foxwedge is a Group 1 winner who produces impressive stock that captures buyers’ attention. Coupled with this, his ability to get stakes horses (8.3%) will ensure his stock commands not only local but international appeal”

With successful, winning performers in 21 individual countries, the international appeal of his stock continues to flourish and with his commencement to the current racing season being as good, if not better than any other season, the desire of Foxwedge as a stallion is stronger than ever.

PROGENY

Highlighting his significant international appeal, Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes winner Foxplay as well as Group 1 Railway Stakes winner Volpe Veloce are both from the first southern hemisphere crop of Foxwedge, while his Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes winner Urban Fox is from the first northern hemisphere crop.

2020 has been an exciting year for Foxwedge, siring the winner of the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce with the talented colt Lunar Fox, victorious in the prestigious race. After breaking his maiden in his previous start at Ballarat, Lunar Fox made it back to back wins in an impressive performance at Flemington crossing the line three-quarters of a length ahead of his rivals.

While the likes of Wild Vixen, a dual Listed-winning, Group 3 performer this season has continued to highlight the mental toughness and soundness of the Foxwedge stock.

With 100% winners to runners in South Africa including the outstanding sprinting mare Run Fox Run who won was unbeaten in her first five starts highlighted by Group 2 success before a narrow Group 1 second, coupled with the the multiple stakes winner Infamous Fox, further shines attention on Foxwedge as an impressive source of global success.

With progeny earnings over $34 million, Foxwedge’s stakes winning progeny also include the Group 2 winners Noire and Alassio, and the speedy sprinting mare Villami.

With Foxwedge at the stage where his daughters are going to stud, another layer to the success is being added with his daughters selling up to $800,000 in 2020.

PEDIGREE

As a son of Champion Sire and sire of sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill) out of the Forest Wildcat mare Forest Native, who as a broodmare sire has produced 164 stakes performers including eight Group 1 winners, Foxwedge has proven successful with many broodmare sire lines including stakes success from daughters of Barathea, El Prado, Starcraft, Woodman, Malibu Moon, General Nediym, Danehill Dancer and Red Ransom.

One of more than twenty sons at stud in Australia by his Champion Sire, as listed by the Australian Stud Book, Foxwedge is the ONLY active stallion to have produced three or more individual Group 1 winners.

       

PERFORMANCE

On the track, Foxwedge was one of the leading runners of his generation. A winner on debut, the John O’Shea-trained colt went back to back at his first two starts before finishing third in the Group 2 Todman Stakes behind Smart Missile and Sepoy. After tackling the Group 1 Golden Slipper at just his fourth start, the colt was sent for a well-deserved spell.

Resuming in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes with victory over Anise and Kurata Queen, two starts later Foxwedge captured the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes, a race won in the past by the likes of Exceed And Excel and his very own sire Fastnet Rock.

A very narrow second in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes down the Flemington straight behind World Champion 3YO Sprinter Sepoy, Foxwedge was then spelled before tackling for consecutive Group 1 sprints.

Fourth in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes on resumption behind the world class Black Caviar, Hay List and Buffering, Foxwedge then went on to finish third behind those two placegetters in the Group 1 Newmarket, before exacting revenge over the pair in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes, earning the $925,000 Inglis Easter yearling sale sold colt his elite level victory.

After a final start in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes at Randwick the colt was retired to stud.
