New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Yearling Sale - Lot 698 Foxwedge x Whiffle 16' Filly

Foxwedge x Whiffle
Foxwedge x Whiffle

Leasing is an exciting way to taste the thrill of racehorse ownership. Unlike syndication, leasing involves a small lease fee & the lessee then contributes to the upkeep of the horse such as training fees, pretraining fees & agistment fees whilst also being entitled to receiving prizemoney for races won. Just twelve short months after the yearlings make their sale ring debut, in 2019 they are eligible to compete in the lucrative $1 million Karaka Million 2YO and in 2020 they will be able to contest the enhanced $1 million Karaka Million 3YO Classic. This filly is already nominated for both!!!'''

"A sharp filly with a great attitude! She has been broken in and has just started pre-training, we are very much looking forward to getting her into the stable for her first preparation which is only around the corner! She is a very efficient mover with a lovely action & almost looks like she is floating when she is walking - VERY LIGHT ON HER FEET which generally translates to galloping well. She also has a lovely feminine head with an intelligent eye who was very switched on to what was going on at the sales complex in New Zealand. She has the scope and size to continue to grow, continuing to improve physically as a 3YO and on to an older horse. She has very good length of body & a magnificent overstep which equates to a good length of stride. Extremely good depth of girth, this is important to house good sized lungs. The larger the lungs, the greater the oxygen intake enabling peak performance under racing conditions. I am absolutely delighted to be given this filly to train by Mr & Mrs Francis & Christine Cook who are fantastic supporters of the stable and I look forward to sharing her racing career with everyone. We have had some great success with these lease fillies over the years including Faraway Town who has won almost $850,000 in prizemoney. If anyone feels like they are ready to experience the thrill of racehorse ownership then leasing with the Cook's is the way to go!"
