High class FOXWEDGE 4yo filly VOLPE VELOCE scored a well-deserved victory at the elite level finishing strongly to land the Group 1 Sistema Railway Stakes (1200m) at Ellerslie under testing conditions. The victory took the mare’s record to 10 wins from just 13 career starts and she remains unbeaten at Ellerslie with four wins from four starts as well as at the distance where she is six from six. She will now tackle the Group I JR & N Berkett Telegraph (1200m) which will be held at Trentham on January 20.

A $240,000 Karaka yearling purchase from the Lyndhurst Farm draft, VOLPE VELOCE  was a successful pinhook for Lyndhurst having been bought for $120,000 at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale from the Newgate Farm draft. Bred by Nick and Amy Vass, she was foaled and raised at Newgate Farm.

She is the fourth winner from Group III winner BARDEGO who was purchased by Randwick Bloodstock agency for clients Rushton Park Thoroughbreds at the 2015 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale for $46,000 when in foal to FOXWEDGE. At the 2017 Inglis Premier Melbourne Sale, her in-utero foal (now a strapping FOXWEDGE yearling filly) would sell for $300,000 to the bid of Sheamus Mills. Rushton Park will offer her current yearling filly by Helmet at Magic Millions as Lot 531.
