Foxy Star out for Civic Win

Warwick Farm horseman Guy Walter is hoping for a good second-up effort from his consistent Galileo mare Foxstar in Rosehill’s Civic Stakes this weekend, the four-year-old seeking their maiden black-type title.

Foxstar boasts a strong record of four wins and six minor placings from their 12 starts to date, the Sydney sprinter-miler one of 16 nominations for Saturday’s $100,000 Listed Civic Stakes (1400m).

The Civic Stakes will be just the second stakes test for the promising mare, who last season finished a credible fifth behind Speedy Natalie in the Group 3 Asian Racing Federation Trophy (2000m) at Randwick.

Bought back in the spring of 2010, Foxstar was in blistering form with her five spring runs producing four victories and a second.

Given a lengthy five month break in the paddock after her successful last season in Sydney, Walter bought Foxstar back at Rosehill at the start of the month.

Partnering with jockey Christian Reith for the first time, she was beaten into second by My Vegas in her first-up run in a 1200m handicap and Walter is hopeful she can improve on that run this Saturday.

The well-performing Foxstar unfortunately suffered a winter campaign setback when she missed a start in the Riviana Foodservice Benchmark 90 Handicap (1350m) at Rosehill last Saturday.

Walter was shocked that she was only the second emergency for the contest that he planned to use as a stepping stone for Foxstar to progress onto the $100,000 Listed Winter Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on July 16.

“It’s disappointing because she was going to run on Saturday and then in the Winter Stakes in three weeks but she won’t be doing that,” Walter said.

“It can’t be helped but I’m just surprised a mare of her quality can’t get a run in a winter race.”

In the Civic Stakes Foxstar is due to be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, who will be the eighth individual jockey to take the mount on the mare over her career.
