Dixie Blossoms Wins Gr2 Guy Walter 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) asserted her superiority in the heavy conditions to score by 6.5 lengths for trainer Ron Quinton in the $200,000 Gr2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) for 4YO+ mares, over 6YO mare Zanbagh (Bernardini-Wild Iris, by Spectrum) & fellow 4YO mare Flippant (Hinchinbrook-Lady Beckworth, by General Nediym). Dixie Blossoms improved her record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 Angst Stakes) and 5 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Golden Pendant & Gr3 ATC Toy Show Handicap) from 12 starts for $443,960 earnings. Dixie Blossoms will seek her first Gr1 win when she runs next in the Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on 11 March.
