Dixie Blossoms for Street Sense in Rosehill G1

Classy mare breaks through at elite level in Coolmore Classic

The overwhelming finish of Dixie Blossoms carried her to her first G1 success in Saturday’s Coolmore Classic at Rosehill and earned her a place among the elite progeny of her sire Street Sense.

Already the winner of four Group races, Dixie Blossoms has long been one of the more consistent mares in training and was having her third start this season in the Coolmore.

This time everything went her way on the heavy track and she burst to the lead under her topweight to score by three lengths from El Dorado Dreaming and Princess Posh.

A daughter of the Star Way mare Whistle Dixie, Dixie Blossoms is one of her dam’s four winners, and by far the best of them. Dixie Blossoms is a member of a good New Zealand maternal family that includes the Stakes winners Zonda, Magnolia Hall and Man Of Honour.

Her latest win was the seventh of her 30-start career and she becomes the 10th of Street Sense's G1 winners.

Street Sense is standing at Jonabell Farm for a fee of US$50,000, stands and nurses.
