Foxy On The Run

Aussie bred filly retains unbeaten record

The Kieswetter family have a very smart 3yo on their hands in the shape of the Australian-bred Run Fox Run, who registered her first stakes success and maintained her unbeaten record when running her rivals ragged in the R150 000 Listed Olympic Duel Stakes at Kenilworth on Saturday.

A convincing winner of her first three starts, Run Fox Run started a popular fancy under Ridgemont Highlands ride Greg Cheyne to make it four on the trot and was never under pressure as she sauntered to a five length victory in a time of 71,52 secs for the 1200m.

Rush Hour Girl tried her heart out but had no chance in second, another 1,25 lengths ahead of Platinum Class.

An A$420,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Craig Roscoe and Brett Crawford from the Mill Park draft, Run Fox Run was the most expensive yearling by her sire sold at that sale.

She has won 4 from 4 for stakes of R261 250.

The winner is a half-sister to stakes-winner Guard of Honour and is the third winner from the General Nediym mare Victory Cry, a full sister to stakes-winner Victory Chant and half-sister to stakes-winner Reldas from the family of GrI winner Serious Speed.

Mill Park sold the current yearling from Victory Cry, a colt by Written Tycoon, at Inglis Easter this year for A$900,000.

Run Fox Run is the 14th stakes-winner for Foxwedge (Fastnet Rock), who stands in Victoria this spring at Woodside Park at a fee of A$16,500.

One gets the feeling that Brett Crawford could have taken his chances at Scottsville on Saturday with Run Fox Run.
