Apollo First-Up for Foxplay

Tuesday, 13th February 2018

Group One winner Foxplay (Foxwedge-Butters, by El Prado) will open her autumn campaign in the Gr2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday, reports racenet. Foxplay is taking advantage of the absence of her champion stable-mate Winx, who instead will resume in the Gr1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on 3 March. "I wasn't going to run Foxplay in the Apollo but now that Winx isn't there she will run," trainer Chris Waller said. Foxplay, who has not raced since finishing a close-up fifth (beaten 1.1 lengths) behind Shoals in the Gr1 Myer Classic in the spring, is being aimed at a defence of her title in the Gr1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes during The Championships.
