Dixie Blossoms looked like the winner in the Coolmore Legacy last year before Foxplay and Zanbagh came over the top of her, consigning her to third. She was also third in the Myer Classic in the spring at Flemington and Dixie Blossoms has twice been less than a length from victory in group 1 mares company.
“These mares' races are super competitive and you can be within touching distance of victory and be fifth or sixth,” Quinton said. “You need to get the right luck on the day.
"This time last year they were both flying and only won one race each, which I thought was a good effort.
“This time in, they both won first-up and I said to my son, 'I hope that isn’t it'. Then Daysee came out and won the group 1. It sort of seems the way things have gone with them that Dixie's turn will come.”
The right luck has passed over Quinton in the barrier draw for the Coolmore Legacy as Dixie Blossoms drew 16 and Daysee Doom the extreme outside gate in 17.
