Shuttle sire Foxwedge and French stallion Scalo got their first winners on Thursday
THURSDAYGroup 1 winning sprinter and shuttle sire Foxwedge (by Fastnet Rock) got the first winner from the northern hemisphere half of his global first crop when Seafront took the opening race at Beverley. The Whitsbury Manor Stud resident has a blacktype-placed juvenile in the Australian half of that crop. Seafront is trained by James Tate, was bred by Jeremy Green and Sons, and she is out of Locharia (by Wolfhound). That makes her a half-sister to a string of winners including 2010's Cambridgeshire scorer Credit Swap (by Diktat). Her grandam's siblings include the Group 1 stars Lochsong (by Song) and Lochangel (by Night Shift).Icalo won a five and a half furlong maiden at Nantes to give Haras du Logis Saint Germain stallion Scalo (by Lando) his first winner. He is out of Indyca (by Panis), who is a half-sister to the Group 3-placed multiple scorer Ice Cool (by Lateral), and the blacktype horses in his immediate family include 10 furlong listed scorer Indian Breeze (by Monsun) and Group 1 Preis der Diana (German Oaks) third Indigo Girl (by Sternkonig).
