Daysee Doom beat Dixie Blossoms to win the Golden Pendant a fortnight ago, but Kerrin McEvoy gave Dixie Blossoms a peach of a ride in the Angst Stakes and she stormed down the outside to record back-to-back wins in the Group 2 event.

McEvoy timed his run to perfect on Dixie Blossoms and he was thrilled to ride a feature race winner for Quinton, who earlier this week was cleared of any penalty for presenting two horses to the races with excessive cobalt levels.

“Ronnie got the quinella there and he has two lovely race mares,” McEvoy said.

“It was a pleasure to be on this ones back, she is a sweetheart to ride.

“The Randwick mile was perfect and Ronnie just said take your time with her, have her comfortable and she will finish well.

“Ronnie does a great job – he only has a small team, but he is producing good winner after good winner and it was pleasing to get one here for him.”

Quinton was always confident that Dixie Blossoms would be very tough to beat in the Angst Stakes and he was clearly delighted to have trained the quinella in the Group 2 event.

He confirmed that both mares will head to Melbourne for the Myer Classic at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, but before that could run in The Nivison at Royal Randwick in a fortnight.

“They are two wonderful mares for us,” Quinton said.

“It is a bloody shame to have to keep running them against each other, but they have evened the score today and I am very proud of both mares.

“They were both ridden beautifully.

“She didn’t cruise up like I thought she might, but she got the job done.

“When you get to Daysee you have to beat her because she fights on like a rocket.

“They are very likely to go to the Myer Classic.

“That is a month away from today, so we will work a plan out.

“I might run them here in The Nivison.”

Quinton’s horses Boss Lane and Imanui were found with excessive cobalt levels follow runs in Sydney in August, but Racing New South Wales stewards ruled that the positive tests were likely recorded due to a horse feed that was found to contain up to 50 times the level of cobalt mentioned on the feed mix label.
