Dixon Street easily
Dixon Street will now head to town following an impressive return to racing at Gawler on Sunday, April 19.
The Tony & Calvin McEvoy trained three-year-old filly trailed the leaders early before cruising to the lead in the home straight to win the John Harmer Handicap (1100m).
Dixon Street ($2.25 fav), ridden by Jake Toeroek, ended up scoring an untouched three length win from Triple Deez ($4.40) with Archway To Heaven ($11), three-quarters of a length away third.
Toeroek had the filly third on the fence on settling down, then eased out three wide to challenge the leaders turning for home and she dashed away to win easily.
“She is a city class filly on what I saw today,” Tony McEvoy said.
“She is building a nice little profile.
“That makes it two wins and three placings from just five starts.
“The filly had only one trial to ready her for today’s race, so I believe there is more improvement to come and she is improving with maturity.
“She was travelling on the home turn when her rivals were under pressure and she let down beautifully.
“It was a good ride by Jake.
“He put her is a perfect spot early and had her travelling sweetly.
“It was exciting, and I believe there is more to come.”
Dixon Street is owned by the Strawberry Stud Syndicate, managed by John Singleton.
“John has been a great supporter of the stable for some time and we always have a horse or two for him.”
