Foxwedge Wins 2012 William Reid Stakes Over Hay List – Results

Foxwedge has upset hot favourite Hay List to win the Group 1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley racecourse tonight March 23, 2012.

The three-year-old colt flew down the final straight in the closing stages of the races to snatch the win away from Hay List, who looked the sure winner at the turn.

Buffering held on after settling into his usual leading position to finish third.

Foxwedge has now won five of his 12 race starts and cemented himself as one of the top perspective stallions of the coming years.

Trainer John O’Shea’s stable representative, Bryce Heyes, couldn’t contain his excitement over winning Foxwedge’s first Group 1 after the race.

“We went close in the spring,” Heyes said.

“We knew we could get revenge. We knew we could get it at Group 1 level.

“It’s a credit to John (O’Shea).

“Foxwedge has deserved this night tonight.

“He’s never let us down when we’ve come to the races.”

Heyes was in awe of Foxwedge’s fantastic acceleration ability.

“He’s always had that and it’s going to (serve him) well when he goes to stud,” he said.

The plan is to now take Foxwedge to England where he will contest the Grade 1 King’s Stand Stakes on  June 19, 2012.

“Well that’s where he can go now and he’s justified going over there,” Heyes said.

Nash Rawiller was aboard Foxwedge for his 2012 William Reid Stakes win.

“He’s got a tremendous turn of foot,” Rawiller said.

“He’s a colt I just had such a big opinion since day one.

‘He’s got that real X factor about him.

“I was confident a long way from home.

“He’s a damn good horse.”
