Dixie Blossoms Wins Gr3 Angst Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Darley's 2006 Champion 2YO Colt & 2007 Gr1 Kentucky Derby-winning shuttler Street Sense (Street Cry-Bedazzle, by Dixieland Band) added a Group success when 4YO mare Dixie Blossoms (Street Sense-Whistle Dixie, by Star Way) showed a smart turn of foot to score by 1.3 lengths for trainer Ron Quinton in the $150,000 Gr3 Angst Stakes (1600m) for 4YO+ mares, over 6YO mare Lady Le Fay (Thorn Park-Mia le Fay, by Zabeel) & fellow 4YO mare Happy Hannah (More Than Ready-Absolute Joy, by Zabeel). This was a well deserved maiden stakes victory for the consistent Dixie Blossoms who improved her record to 3 wins and 4 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Golden Pendant & Gr3 ATC Toy Show Handicap) from 9 starts for $290,960 earnings.
