Foxplay & Winx to Meet in Spring
Group One-winning mare Foxplay is set to clash with her champion stable-mate Winx in the early part of the spring, beginning with the Gr2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday week, reports Racing And Sports. Foxplay and Winx are then programmed to run in the Gr2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on 2 September, with Winx to then head to the Gr1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on 16 September. Trainer Chris Waller will then decide whether Foxplay remains in Sydney or heads south to Melbourne for races such as the Gr1 Myer Classic. "Spring plans for Foxplay are currently fluid, though she is likely to be kept at a mile with races such as the Myer Classic and maybe the Epsom on her radar," said Waller's stable manager, Charles Duckworth. "She's got a very exciting spring ahead of her. She doesn't need to be going any further than a mile." Foxplay emerged as a possible heir to Winx when posting a brilliant win in the Gr1 Coolmore Legacy Stakes (otherwise known as the Gr1 Queen of The Turf Stakes) in the autumn. Foxplay will step out in heat two over 1000m at today's Randwick trials.
