Magic Millions Goal for Foxwedge Stakes-Winner

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday October 21

Woodside Park’s Foxwedge has a habit for producing talented fillies and we saw one at Geelong on Wednesday when progressive four year-old mare Wild Vixen resumed from a spell to win the Listed Black Pearl Stakes (1200m).

The Levi Kavanagh trained mare was a stakes-winner in Adelaide back in April and looks set for a great campaign judging by this performance.

Easy in the market and drawn wide, Wild Vixen finished with good determination under Mark Zahra to score a long neck win.


Given she was bought from Magic Millions, her trainer is planning a long term goal for returning to the Gold Coast for the big raceday in January, but in the meantime is looking towards Flemington for a suitable stakes race for Wild Vixen.

Wild Vixen has the overall record of four wins and three placings from 11 starts with prizemoney in excess of $212,000.

A $100,000 Magic Millions purchase for Kavanagh Racing from the Tyreel Stud draft, Wild Vixen was bred in Victoria by Hillside Parade Racing and Breeding.

She is the best of three winners from stakes-placed Shamardal (USA) mare Amy’s Glen, who was bought for Twin Hills Stud by Andrew Williams Bloodstock for $100,000 at the 2018 Inglis Australian Broodmare Sale.

She sadly died earlier this year and her final foal is a yearling filly by Smart Missile, so she is a three-quarter sister to Wild Vixen, with Foxwedge and Smart Missile both sons of Fastnet Rock.


Wild Vixen is one of 20 stakes-winners for Foxwedge, who is remarkably good value this spring at a fee of $11,000.
