Foxy Winner at Canterbury
Tara Madgwick - Friday, 6 January 2017
Newgate Farm's Foxwedge featured at Canterbury on Friday night when progressive filly Foxy Housewife scored a tenacious win to become his eighth Australian metropolitan winner since the start of December.

The Gerald Ryan trained three year-old was a winner at Kembla back in June and was having her third run back from a spell in the Benchmark 66 event for three year-old fillies over 1250 metres.

FoxwedgeRace fitness came into play when she ended up three wide for Josh Parr, but she found the line strongly to win by a long head and has now banked over $63,000 in prizemoney.

Raced by BK Racing and Breeding, Foxy Housewife is the fourth winner from four foals to race from Household (USA), an unraced half-sister to stakes-winner Danzari from the family of Group I winners Zafonic, Announce and Prohibit.

She is the 22nd winner this season in Australia for Foxwedge, who has had a great run since the start of December reeling off eight metropolitan winners – Eastern Paradise, Colosimo, Honour 'n Strength, Arizona Wildcat, Aghna, Barjeel, Volpino and now Foxy Housewife.

That's not to mention his unbeaten Kiwi based filly Volpe Veloce, whose six wins include a Group II, Group III and a Listed win.

Foxwedge has an impressive draft of 27 for Magic Millions, click here to see them.
