Foxwedge hunting for a 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes win



Foxwedgeopened his career with two wins as an early two-year-old in the minor league when a short priced favourite and won them easily.

Trainer John O’Shea had the education part intact and then it was a case of what Foxwedge could do in black type races.

The bay colt has continually progressed and now is equal second favourite alongside Hot Snitzel with Luxbet at $11 for the 2011 $502,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday.

Foxwedge was far from disgraced in the better two year old races finishing a midfield seventh in the Golden Slipper Stakes behind Sepoy before being spelled.

But the son of Fastnet Rock and Forest Native definitely improved as a three-year-old.

He was pushing towards the rich Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) and ran a narrow second to the exciting Smart Missile in the lead up Run For The Roses.

On to the Golden Rose and Foxwedge met three very good ones, Manawanui, Smart Missile and Helmet – he didn’t match it with them but by O’Shea’s next move we may have the explanation why.

While those three horses went into races over more ground, Foxwedge went back to 1200m and won his latest start the Roman Consul Stakes when odds on.

He steps up again to Group 1 in this the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) and meets Australia’s dominate three-year-old sprinter Sepoy.

Foxwedge seems to prefer dry ground and punters may give him an extra tick if he gets one here.

Speedy with quality, Foxwedge should go into multiples in the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Can he win the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes?

Sepoy is at the end of his campaign and that is the hope of all his rivals who have real quality yet are evenly matched – Foxwedge is one of the better ones and you get the feeling he will be an even better four-year-old – A win is not out of the question.
