Laid-back Foreplay at Woodside Park

Danehill stallion Foreplay is gearing up for another busy season at Woodside Park in Victoria.

Foreplay has sired three Group winners in three states this season – Decision Time (G2 Stan Fox Stakes in NSW), That’s Not It (G3 Red Anchor Stakes in Victoria) and Playcidium Mint (G3 Lee-Steere Classic in WA).

“Foreplay is having daily sessions on the water-walker to get him fit for his second stud season here,” Woodside Park manager Dean Harvey said.  “He’s so laid-back that he puts on a bit of condition between seasons, but he’s thriving on his daily exercise.

“His 2011 book is filling fast and he will be ready to cover some really nice mares when the season starts on September 1.”

Foreplay (Danehill – Procrastinate by Jade Hunter) has sired 24 winners from only 51 runners in 2010-11.  That strike-rate puts him third behind Jet Spur and Snitzel for second-season sires with more than 50 runners.

Foreplay’s fee for the 2011 season is $13,200 (inc. gst).
