RUN FOX RUN RELATIVE AN ATTRACTIVE EASTER SALE PROSPECT

There can be little doubt that brilliant Foxwedge mare Run Fox Run was one of the fastest fillies to grace the South African turf in recent years.

Now retired, and allegedly in line for a covering by either Frankel or Kingman, the Ridgemont owned Run Fox Run won eight of just 11 starts (she was never out of the money) during a career that saw her bank over R1 000 000 in stakes.

Run Fox Run, who was trained by Brett Crawford, picked up a treble of sprint features during her career and ended her career on a high when downing some of South Africa’s best sprinters when victorious in the 2021 G1 Cape Flying Championship.

Among Run Fox Run’s beaten opponents in this year’s Cape Flying Championship were champions Celtic Sea, Kasimir, Russet Air and Tempting Fate, as well as such G1 winning speedballs as Bold Respect, Pacific Trader and Vernichey.

A winner of her first five races, Run Fox Run also captured the 2019 G2 World Sports Bettin Southern Cross Stakes and 2019 Listed Olympic Duel Stakes.

Vinery Stud will be offering, as agent, a filly (Lot 431) from the same family as that flying machine at this year’s Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.

A daughter of Coolmore’s ten-time G1 winning High Chaparral horse So You Think, the filly in question, a half-sister to multiple winner Don’t Despair, is out of the unraced Redoute’s Choice mare Miss Tenacious.

The latter, herself a half-sister to G2 VRC Edward Manifold Stakes winner Majestic Music (Al Maher), was produced by the winning Royal Academy mare Regal Flute -a full-sister to MRC G1 Thousand Guineas winner Serious Speed.

Regal Flute and Serious Speed were produced by the SAJC HC Nitschke Stakes-winning Kendor mare Twitter – who also features as the third dam of the brilliant Run Fox Run.
