Foxwedge Filly Wins Again for Star

Wednesday, June 21, 2017


Denise Martin’s Star Thoroughbreds have tasted success at Group I level with Foxwedge filly Foxplay this season and have another nice filly by the in-form Newgate Farm stallion.

Prepared by Chris Waller, three year-old filly Noire opened her account at Canterbury back in April and found her way back to the winner’s circle on Wednesday.

Ridden forward by Kerrin McEvoy from an outside gate, Noire was up on the pace and kicked strongly to the line to win the 1250 metre benchmark 67 event by a head in a tight tussle.

A $135,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Star from the Highgrove Stud draft, Noire has two wins and two seconds from five starts with prizemoney topping $80,000.

She is a half-sister to stakes-placed Global Dream, Maraatib and Valoura being the seventh winner from good producer Valadon, a half-sister to Group II winners Timbourina and Media.

Noire continues a hot run for Foxwedge, who has opened up a lead on his rivals in the battle to be leading Australian Second Crop Sire.

The Group I winning son of Fastnet Rock stands at a fee of $22,000 at Newgate Farm this spring.
