Talented Foxwedge mare Foxy Housewife has always threatened to win a Black Type race and the six year-old made the quantum leap at Wyong on Friday when taking out a hugely competitive $140,000 Listed Mona Lisa Stakes.
Facing a big field of evenly matched mares, the Joe Pride trained Foxy Housewife pulled out a career best performance to surge home out wide for Robbie Dolan to score a head win in the 1350 metre sprint.
Foxy Housewife has had several trainers throughout her career and only recent joined the Joe Pride stable having been prepared most recently by David Vandyke.
She won her first start for her new trainer at Rosehill on July 27 and was freshened coming into this assignment with happy results all round.
“She’s a big strong mare, you don’t see too many nicer types in the yard,” said Joe Pride.
“Full credit to David Vandyke. He sent her to me in perfect order and it’s just great for her to get that Black Type today.”
Foxy Housewife runs for BK Racing and Breeding and has won seven races from 35 starts earning over $350,000 in prizemoney.
She is the best of four winners from Household (USA) and is a half-sister to the dam of stakes-winning juvenile The Enzo.
An unraced daughter of Chester House, Household comes from a big European Black Type family featuring countless Group I winners, so with a stakes win next to her name, Foxy Housewife has become a very valuable mare. Household died last year and her final foal is a yearling colt by Sizzling.
Foxy Housewife is the 15th stakes-winner for Fastnet Rock’s Group I winning sire son Foxwedge, who transferred to Victoria this year to stand at Woodside Park at a fee of $16,500.
