One of the best value proven sires in Victoria this spring, Foxwedge featured overnight with a new stakes-winner in the UK after Foxtrot Lady took out the Group III Sceptre Stakes (7f) at Doncaster.

The Andrew Balding trained five year-old had been  stakes-placed in Listed races four times so was overdue for a Black Type victory and with the help of champion jockey Frankie Dettori was able to score a length and quarter win.

A homebred for Jeff Smith of Littleton Stud, Foxtrot Lady has the overall record of five wins from 28 starts.

She is a half-sister to Group III winner Dancing Star from good producer Strictly Dancing, a Danehill Dancer daughter of Group I winning sprinter Lochangel.

Foxtrot Lady is the 20th stakes-winner for Foxwedge, who stands at Woodside Park in Victoria at a fee of $11,000.

Foxwedge shuttled to the UK for three seasons at the start of his career and four of his 20 stakes-winners are Northern Hemisphere bred including his Group I winner Urban Fox.
