Dixie Blossoms (pictured below) once again proved herself one of the best of the Australian progeny of her sire Street Sense when she stormed home to win the G2 Guy Walter Stakes for the second time.
With four Stakes races among her six wins, Dixie Blossoms has also won the past two runnings of the G3 Angst Stakes.
Street Sense has produced three Australian G1 winners - Hallowed Crown, Politeness and Sense Of Occasion – with Dixie Blossoms, who is G1-placed his most prominent runner at the next level.
A confident and patient ride by Christian Reith earned the five-year-old victory by three-quarters-of-a-length from the Godolphin filly Raiment.
Dixie Blossoms, who was bred by her owner Alan Osburg, had been Street Sense’s previous Group winner in Australia with her win in the 2017 Angst Stakes last Spring.
Dixie Blossoms carries the heritage of a strong New Zealand family through her dam Whistle Dixie whose maternal line traces to the G1 NZ Derby winner Zonda and the multiple Group winner and G1 Melbourne Cup placegetter Magnolia Hall.
Street Sense stands at Jonabell Farm, Kentucky, at a fee of US$35,000, stands and nurses.
