Hunter Valley's newest stallion operation Newgate Farm opened its gates to the
public over the weekend, welcoming breeders to inspect one of the most exciting
young sires in Australia this season in Foxwedge.
A Group I winning son of Fastnet Rock, Foxwedge was a top class performer on the track and has the eye catching good looks that saw him fetch $925,000 as an Inglis Easter yearling.
Foxwedge is set to cover a full book of stellar mares this spring at a fee of
$33,000 and among those mares confirmed is Artistique, the dam of last Saturday's
brilliant Group III ATC Silver Shadow Stakes winner Nechita.
Nechita is of course by Foxwedge's sire Fastnet Rock, so the resulting foal will be a three-quarter sibling to a filly many believe could be a real superstar in the making.
