Full books for Foxwedge

Newgate Farm stallion Foxwedge covered full books in his first season at stud both in the UK and Australia and his southern fee will remain unchanged at $33,000 (inc gst) in 2013.

A magnificent physical specimen by Fastnet Rock, Foxwedge lived up to his pedigree and physique on the racetrack.  Dominating rivals in his first two starts as a two year-old, he came back at three to beat class fields in the G2 Roman Consul Stakes and G3 San Dominico Stakes in Sydney, prior to a successful Melbourne raid when he mowed down all bar Sepoy in the Group I VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes.

In the autumn, Foxwedge emerged triumphant, crushing an elite field of older sprinters to win the G1 MVRC William Reid Stakes.

With the exceptional book of mares Foxwedge covered in his first year at stud, breeders will be well positioned by breeding to him in 2013.

Mares in foal to Foxwedge sold well during the Super Select Inglis Australian Broodmare on Tuesday with stakes-winners How Funny and Cinque fetching $260,000 and $150,000, while Social Scene (Ire), the dam of G1 winner Zipping sold for $120,000.
