Foxy Golden Rose 2011 Trial by Rosehill Winner


Foxwedge is the 2011 San Domenico Stakes winner

John O’Shea’s talented colt Foxwedge displayed their 2011 Golden Rose credentials at Rosehill last Saturday with an impressive first-up victory in the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

Heavily backed for their resuming run, Fastnet Rock three-year-old Foxwedge jumped as the odds-on $1.95 favourite in the feature Rosehill race on the weekend.

Having their first victory since finishing unplaced behind Peter Snowden’s brilliant Sepoy in the Golden Slipper back in April, Foxwedge showed they were right on track for a solid spring as they saluted for the punters beating home Sepoy’s stablemate Anise ($7.50) by half a length while Magic Millions winner Karuta Queen ($3.60) finished a further length and a half away third.

“It was pretty painless,” O’Shea said of Foxwedge’s win on Saturday.

“We had a few palpitations late but he was probably entitled to knock up.

“He travelled beautiful, he let down well.

“He’s still green, he wobbled around a bit and go unbalanced but it was a nice start to his preparation.

“I’m happy to get that out of the way and get a win.

“He has only had the one serious hit-out going into it, so he is going to improve.”

Foxwedge has now won three of their five career starts to date and will look to add to that record as the progress onto the opening elite level race of the season, the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) on September 10.

Golden Rose betting odds at Luxbet are lead by Anthony Cummings’ untapped talent Smart Missile ($4) while Foxwedge has firmed in from $10 to the $9 fourth favourite after their success in the San Domenico Stakes.

O’Shea and connections are eyeing a stud career for Foxwedge, who having won their first black-type on Saturday and are now looking on track to add to that record throughout this prep, is a valuable stallion prospect.

After the Golden Rose, the plan is for Foxwedge to head down to Melbourne where they will clash with Sepoy in the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday October 29.

Despite failing to have come within five lengths of Sepoy in the Golden Slipper, and also having run behind them when Sepoy was second and Foxwedge was third in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) last Autumn, O’Shea believes a year older and at Flemington Foxwedge may have the edge.

“I really want to get him down the (Flemington) straight – that’s where his future lies,” O’Shea said.

But first, O’Shea will run Foxwedge in the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill on August 27 and then the Golden Rose 2011.

“We will have two weeks (until the Run To the Rose) and then two weeks again into the Rose before a short break to get ready for Flemington,” O’Shea confirmed.
