Fastnet Rock Blueblood Filly Heads To NZ 1000 Guineas
A beautifully bred daughter of Fastnet Rock appears all but assured of taking her place in the Gr1 NZB 1000 Guineas at Riccarton Park in mid November. According to theinformant.co.nz, Miss Foxwood, out of 1997 NZ 1000 Guineas heroine Foxwood, put herself firmly into contention at yesterday's Taupo meeting when careering away to a 4.5-lengths victory. Trainer Roger James will, however, have to find another rider should the filly make the cut, as regular rider Mark Du Plessis is already committed to Gr3-winning filly Bounding who appears the likely favourite for the New Zealand blue riband event.
