The Ron Quinton trained Dixie Blossoms handled the heavy Randwick track perfectly to score a runaway win in the Group 2 $200,000 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) at Randwick today.

Winning jockey Tim Clark was able to dictate the tempo of the race once he crossed to the front and once the field was over the rise in the straight, he let Dixie Blossoms ($3.10 favourite) stride away to record a six and a half lengths win over the John Thompson trained Zanbagh ($8).

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Flippant ($5.50) raced on the pace and battled on okay in the straight to finish third another one and a half lengths away.

Quinton is keen to test Dixie Blossoms at the highest level and has picked out the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on March 11 a major Sydney Autumn Carnival target for the mare.

“We didn’t quite know about the heavy but she run second to Single Gaze on slow,” Quinton said.

“She is such an adaptable mare isn’t she, like the last thing we thought was that she would leading but by the same token she got there by default and he was able to go three quarter pace and home two.”

“Two weeks to the Coolmore, it will be ideal.”

Clark gave Dixie Blossoms a heap of praise for providing him with a winner for Quinton.

“She is obviously a very talented mare. Just rapt for Ronnie to ride a good winner for him,” Clark said.
