First Foal For Foxwedge

Monday, 5th August 2013

Exciting young Fastnet Rock sire-son Foxwedge (Fastnet Rock-Forest Native, by Forest Wildcat) has sired his first foal, reports breednet.com.au. Newgate Farm's foundation stallion is the sire of a filly foal born on Friday at Ascot Park in New South Wales. The filly is out of Pink Sirus (Encosta de Lago), one of over 160 mares covered by Foxwedge in his debut stud season. A reverse shuttler to the UK's Whitsbury Manor in 2013, Foxwedge (a $925,000 yearling consigned by Luskin Park Stud at the 2010 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) retired with 5 wins (including March's Gr1 William Reid Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, plus 2011's Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes over 1200m at Randwick & Gr3 San Domenico Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill) & 4 placings (including March's Gr1 Newmarket Handicap over 1200m at Flemington, plus 2011's Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes over 1200m at Flemington, Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill & Gr3 Run To The Rose over 1200m at Rosehill) from 12 starts for $942,450 earnings.
