Four Length Winner for Foxwedge

Tuesday, May 23, 2017


The winning run for Foxwedge keeps going with the Danny Williams trained three year-old Volpe, adding to his burgeoning record with a facile four length victory at Goulburn on Monday.

A relatively new addition to the Williams stable having transferred from Team Hawkes earlier this year, Volpe broke the ice for his new trainer at the Wagga Cup Carnival and kept up the good work with this super easy win.

Sent out favourite for the 1600 metre contest, he carried 60.5 kg to a dominant victory, his second win from eight starts.

A $190,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Widden Stud draft for Astute Bloodstock / Sunninghill Park, Volpe is a half-brother to stakes-winner Impetuous and is the second winner from stakes-placed Rash Promise.

Rash Promise was covered last year by another of the Newgate sires in Dissident.

Newgate Farm based Foxwedge continues to hold a narrow lead on the Australian Second Season Sires List by earnings and is the first of his group to crack $3million in earnings.

He stands at a fee of $22,000 this spring.
