Juvenile Trial Watch - Rosehill
Tara Madgwick - Monday, 8 May 2017
Eight juvenile heats at Rosehill on Monday morning produced plenty of interest with a runaway victory for an eye-catching son of Foxwedge and a promising win for a half-brother to a Group I winner at Sha Tin on Sunday.

Mad Fox as a yearlingGabrielle Englebrecht puts the polish on Mad Fox, a big baldy faced chestnut gelding that cleared his rivals not long after jumping from the gates and kept going to win by nearly four lengths at his first public outing.

He covered the 900 metres for Tye Angland in 53.70 seconds which was the quickest juvenile heat of the morning.

A big gangly horse that is still coming to grips with his talent, Mad Fox looks as though he will still need some time, but connections will be pleased with what they saw today.

A $70,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Newgate Farm draft for his trainer, Mad Fox is a sibling to three winners from Wild Soiree, a half-sister to Group III winner Musidora, the dam of this season's Golden Slipper place-getter Tulip.

Complacency as a yearlingScoring a professional win in the Aquis Farm colours for the Gary Moore stable was two year-old Charge Forward colt Complacency, a half-brother to Group I Champions Mile winner Contentment (read about him here).

Spelled after finishing last in a trial at Rosehill in early December, Complacency looked a brighter prospect this time around.

Complacency begun only fairly for Tim Clark, but quickly mustered speed to charge through and lead. Held together he turned for home in front and held off all challengers to win by half a length in 54.70 seconds.

Very similar in appearance to his sire Charge Forward, Complacency was bought by Aquis Farm at Magic Millions from the Arrowfield draft for $170,000.

He is the fourth foal of Commands mare Jemison, who has achieved fame as the dam of Contentment and comes from the family of Group I winner Align.
