Foxwedge has caused an upset to defeat champion sprinter and hot favourite Hay List to win the Group 1 William Reid Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley tonight.
The John O’Shea trained Foxwedge came home strong to take the lead in the last 30m from Hay List, who looked to have the race won at the turn. Buffering, who led the race with Hay List faded to finish third with Lone Rock fourth.
