Foxwedge Fillies Show Their Class
Tara Madgwick - Monday September 30
A new addition to Woodside Park in Victoria this spring, Foxwedge showed his class over a big weekend of racing producing Group performers at three successive meetings starting last Friday night at Moonee Valley where up and coming three year-old filly Villami ran a terrific race at her first outing away from Sydney.

Villami is a spring contender for FoxwedgeFourth and second to gun filly Libertini in the Group II ATC Silver Shadow Stakes and Group II ATC Furious Stakes at her first two runs back from a spell, the Gerald Ryan trained Villami was beaten less than a length when third to Loving Gaby in the Group III MVRC Scarborough Stakes.

Already a winner of nearly $200,000 in prizemoney, Villami drew wide in the Scarborough, but still made her presence felt and can doubtless win a Black Type race in Melbourne this spring.

On Saturday at Rosehill, the Hawkes Racing trained Foxwedge mare Dyslexic ran another super race to finish third to Mizzy and Champagne Cuddles in the $400,000 Group II ATC Golden Pendant Stakes.

Five year-old Dyslexic is improving with each preparation and this was her third Graded placing in addition to three fourth placings in Graded races.

Although she hasn't won a stakes race yet, it's hard not to think Dyslexic can address that shortcoming on her CV this season.

FoxwedgeRounding out the big weekend for Foxwedge was lightly raced filly Barbie's Fox, who jumped out of the ground to run third to Acting and Southbank in the Group II MRC Guineas Prelude at her first attempt in a Black Type race.

Trained by Louise Bonella, Barbie's Fox has never finished further back than fifth in five starts and looks a lovely filly going forward.

Foxwedge has started the new season in hot form with a new stakes-winner in Foxy Housewife and these three talented gallopers above – Villami, Dyslexic and Barbie's Fox - all showing the promise of stakes wins to come.

A Group I winning son of Fastnet Rock, Foxwedge is well priced this spring at $16,500.
