FOXWEDGE FILLY MAINTAINS HER UNBEATEN RECORD

Fastnet Rock stallion Foxwedge, who will stand at Woodside Park in 2019, had a very impressive winner at Kenilworth on Saturday.

His 3yo daughter Run Fox Run made it two wins from as many outings when romping home over 1000m for trainer Brett Crawford, jockey Anton Marcus and owners Craig and Ross Kieswetter and Ridgemont Highlands.

Sent off the 18-10 tote favourite for the Next Meeting Kenilworth 16 February 2019 FM 78 handicap for fillies and mares, Run Fox Run was always up with the pace in the 1000m sprint, and, coming to the 400m looked a hard horse to beat.

She duly cruised home to register a 1.75 length win –having scored an equally impressive win on debut, when skating home by two lengths over 1000 metres.

A $420 000 buy from the draft of Mill Park Stud at the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale, Run Fox Run was produced by General Nediym mare Victory Cry and is, as such, a half-sister to ATC Heritage Stakes winner Guard Of Honour.

Mill Park Stud will consigned a Written Tycoon half-brother to Run Fox Run at the 2019 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling as Lot 326.

The same combination went close to enjoying more success with an Australian bred filly on Saturday when Zoustar 3yo filly Boomps A Daisy flew up late to go down a short head when making her debut over 1200m.

Bred by Widden Stud & Saconi Thoroughbreds, the well related Boomps A Daisy is just the second runner for her red hot sire Zoustar in South Africa.

Boomps A Daisy was purchased off the 2017 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, where she fetched $360 000.

She is out of the high class Red Ransom mare Fuddle Dee Duddle, whose four wins included the G3 WATC Champion Fillies Stakes. Fuddle Dee Duddle, a half-sister to G2 Gilgai Stakes winner Hallowell Belle, won up to 1600 and hails from the same family as G1 Caulfield Guineas winner In Top Swing.
