When a proven stallion changes location the new farm would always hope his past success follows with him and so it has been for this proven Group I sire.
Fastnet Rock’s elite Group I winning son Foxwedge established a great reputation for producing good looking yearlings that measured up on the racetrack during his time at Newgate Farm and that success has continued to evolve since his relocation to Woodside Park Stud in Victoria at the start of 2019.
Since he packed his bags and headed south, Foxwedge has sired 11 stakes-winners plus a further 10 stakes placed performers, his success spread across Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK and even Macau, where he sired Sacred Magnate to win the Macau Derby and Big Alloy to win the Macau Derby Trial.His South African based daughter Run Fox Run is a Group II winning and Group I placed mare regarded as one of the best female sprinters in that country and closer to home the brilliant mare Villami looks set to build on her already impressive record after a winning return in Sydney last week.

At the broodmare sales this year Foxwedge has made his presence felt with his star daughters Noire and Volpe Veloce selling at the Inglis Chairman’s Sale for $800,000 and $675,000, while at the Magic Millions National Sale As It Lies and Dyslexic sold for $370,000 and $360,000.

A refined, yet powerful son of Fastnet Rock, Foxwedge consistently imparts his best physical qualities to his offspring making him a low risk stallion for breeders with commercial aspirations at a very affordable fee.
A perfect horse to take advantage of Super VOBIS, Foxwedge is in the prime of his career with 20 stakes-winners worldwide and his oldest progeny only just turned seven.
Foxwedge is priced to please at $11,000 and a quick perusal of stallions at a similar fee will only serve to highlight what great value he is this spring.
