15 Jun Impressive win by Foxy Housewife
Foxy Housewife became the seventh Southern Hemisphere winner for Foxwedge with an impressive victory at Kembla Grange on Tuesday.
The Gerald Ryan trained filly was a luckless fourth on debut at the same venue back in February, but Foxy Housewife has returned from a spell a much stronger competitor.
She jumped fast for Kerrin McEvoy and went forward to find the front, albeit one off the fence, and had a strong kick to the line to win the 1200 metre scamper by half a length over the Godolphin runner Khaki, who was favourite.
“She’s a classy filly and kudos to connections for giving her the time she needed to furnish,” said Benny Vassallo representing BK Racing and Breeding, who own the filly.
“She’s going to improve a lot from this and Gerald has always had a good opinion of her, so it’s very exciting.”
Foxy Housewife was born and bred at Amarina and 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 12th winner overall for Foxwedge, who has sired five winners in Australia, two in New Zealand, three in the UK and one each in the US and Ireland.
