Run Fox Run Sparkles In Return

Brilliant Foxwedge mare Run Fox Run bounced back to winning ways when she downed a top-class field to land the TAB Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Pinnacle Stakes (1000m) at Kenilworth on Wednesday afternoon.

Trained by Brett Crawford, the Mill Park bred four-year-old duly justified tote favouritism in Wednesday’s race with a smooth display.

Jockey Greg Cheyne always had Run Fox Run (23-10) up with the pace, and when asked the question, the Australian bred filly powered clear to post a convincing half length win over longshot Fabian (20-1), with the latter proving the best of the five Candice Bass-Robinson runners.

Bass-Robinson also sent out the third, fourth, and fifth place finishers, with her charges Russet Air (77-20), What A Winner (66-1) and Clouds Unfold (17-4) respectively.

In landing Wednesday’s race (she won in a time of 61.03), Run Fox Run took her tally of wins to six from just seven starts.

One of two winners on the day for owners Ridgemont, Run Fox Run reeled off five wins from her first five starts, with her winning streak including impressive displays in both the G2 Southern Cross and Listed Olympic Duel Stakes.

Her winning run came to end when Run Fox Run could only finish fourth, behind Russet Air, in January’s G1 Cape Flying Championship.

One of 18 stakes winners sired by the Woodside Park based G1 William Reid Stakes winner Foxwedge, Run Fox Run, a half-sister to ATC Heritage Stakes winner Guard Of Honour, is out of the placed General Nediym mare Victory Cry.

Victory Cry has an Astern colt (Lot 53) on offer at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale Round 2, while Champagne Jane, the half-sister to Run Fox Run will be represented by a Foxwedge filly, a three-quarter-sister to the South African speedster as Lot 72.
