Group 1 winning mare Foxplay sold

Star Thoroughbreds reported on Thursday that four-year-old Group 1 winning mare Foxplay has been sold by her original ownership group to the international racing and breeding operation, Yulong Investments.

The daughter of Foxwedge was originally purchased at the 2015 Magic Millions sale by Star Thoroughbreds for $160,000.

Raced by an all ladies partnership in the purple and white Star colours, Foxplay achieved great success through the spring of her three-year-old year winning both the 2016 Group 2 Furious Stakes and the 2016 Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes ensuring that she was the recipient of the prestigious Princess Series award in NSW for three-year-old fillies.

The autumn of 2017 saw Foxplay win the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes for both sex 3 year olds. Two starts later Foxplay won the Group 1 Queen of the Turf Stakes at Randwick (raced as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes) against a large field of high quality mares.

On returning to racing in the spring of 2017, Foxplay was a narrow second in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes at Randwick. 

With five career wins, including four at stakes level, Foxplay earned for her syndicate $1.425 million in prize money.
