Inglis graduates all class at Rosehill

Inglis Easter graduates Anise and Foxwedge were very impressive on debut at Rosehill on Saturday and both youngsters are destined for bigger assignments in the autumn.

Anise (2f General Nediym – Pimpinella by Flying Spur) burst the bubble on Snitzel filly Saramenha in the Asbestos Disease Foundation Hcp.

Saramenha had won her previous two outings by big spaces but Anise refused to surrender in the straight.  “She’s always shown ability but is still very new,” trainer Peter Snowden said.  “She’s all quality and will return a superior filly next preparation.”

Darley bought Anise from Willow Park for $600,000 at the 2010 Inglis Easter yearling sale.  Her dam Pimpinella is a half-sister to G1 winners Fairy King Prawn and Easy Rocking.

Boom colt Foxwedge justified a $1.30 quote with a convincing win in the Always Recycling Hcp at Rosehill.  The John O’Shea trained colt had won a barrier trial by eight lengths prior to his raceday debut.

“He was the horse I most wanted out of the Easter Sale this year,” O’Shea said.  “We approached Dr Bateman and he had to bid $925,000 to get him.”

Foxwedge (2c Fastnet Rock – Forest Native by Forest Wildcat) was part of the Luskin Park consignment.  His dam was bred in North America and she was stakes placed at Santa Anita.  

Corey Brown praised the Fastnet Rock colt after bringing the winner back to scale.  “He got to the front then didn’t want to go away from them,” Brown explained.  “He’s very, very green but is all class.”
