On day two of The Championships at Royal Randwick in Sydney, Newgate Farm's Gr1-winning shuttle stallion Foxwedge (Fastnet Rock-Forest Native, by Forest Wildcat) celebrated his first top-flight winner when 3YO filly Foxplay (Foxwedge-Butters, by El Prado) powered home from the rear of the field to score by 0.5 length for trainer Chris Waller in the $1 million Gr1 Coolmore Legacy Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+ fillies & mares, over 6YO mare Zanbagh (Bernardini-Wild Iris, by Spectrum) & 4YO mare Dixie Blossoms (Street Sense-Whistle Dixie, by Star Way). Foxplay improved her record to 5 wins (including the Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes, Gr2 Furious Stakes & Gr2 Tea Rose Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr2 Light Fingers Stakes) from 13 starts for $1,220,810 earnings. Foxplay, whose second dam is Gr1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Eliza, was a $160,000 purchase by Star Thoroughbreds at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Newgate Farm. "She's been a very special horse to us," Waller told Sky Racing. "We call her the Winx Junior, but there's a lot of similarities…I decided not to run this filly in the Oaks because I think she's got some brilliance and some speed." Foxplay earned herself the distinction of being the first Gr1 winner for her exciting young sire Foxwedge.
