Tony Gollan stable in sparkling form
Sunday 14 February, 2021
The Tony Gollan prepared Foxy Rippa made light work of a wide barrier thanks to a patient ride by champion hoop Michael Rodd at the Sunshine Coast.
The Foxwedge three year-old was trapped wide throughout the 1000m journey with Michael Rodd electing not to panic.
Keeping her balanced and on the bit despite the wide passage, Rodd produced her in the straight before cruising away for a commanding 2 length win.
Foxy Rippa is a half sister to the multiple stakes winner I’m A Rippa, a winner of more than $1.2m and also prepared by Tony Gollan.
Picking up valuable QTIS bonuses, Foxy Rippa broke her maiden at just start three after a luckless first preparation.
Foxy Rippa was secured by Ontrack’s Grant Morgan at the 2019 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale for $100,000 from the draft leading Darling Downs nursery Eureka Stud.
Foxy Rippa is out of the winning Seidnazar mare Derippa, who is now the dam of four named foals for four winners.
