Myer Classic For 2017 Angst Stakes Duo Dixie Blossoms & Daysee Doom

Trainer Ron Quinton enjoyed another Sydney Spring Racing Carnival feature quinella with his star mares Dixie Blossoms and Daysee Doom running one-two in the Angst Stakes 2017 on way to Melbourne for the Myer Classic. Former jockey Quinton has plenty of love for both of his impressive mares who also ran the quinella, but in…

The Angst Stakes is a 1600m race held at Royal Randwick Racecourse during the end of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

With a grand total of $150,000 prize money, the Group 3 Angst Stakes is a highly targeted event for mares heading south to Melbourne for the end of their spring campaigns. It is run under set weights plus penalties conditions, creating a level playing field which allows the more talented mares to stand out, and is open to mares aged four-years-old and above.

2017 Angst Stakes Tips

  • 1st: #2 Dixie Blossoms
  • 2nd: #1 Daysee Doom
  • 3rd: #3 Imposing Lass

Dixie Blossoms is the firming favourite and rightfully so after the brave second when narrowly beaten by stablemate Daysee Doom in the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) at Rosehill last start. The two Quinton mares are the ones to beat again this weekend, but this five-year-old can turn the tables hitting peak fitness and drawn a treat in barrier six. She’s so honest, a Group 1 placegetter and deserves a win here. Daysee Doom next best in betting and likely next best over the line, the Golden Pendant winner just needing the luck from the nasty barrier. Imposing Lass at double-figures is the value, the Makfi mare brave when third against the boys in the Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m) last time out. Her place strike-rate is outstanding and can finish in the money again.

2017 Angst Stakes Nominations

The 2017 Angst Stakes nominations are released by Racing NSW on the Monday of race week and will be available below once announced.

Angst Stakes History

A relatively young race, the Angst Stakes was inaugurated in 1994, following the renowned mare Angst’s excellent win in the 1993 Flight Stakes. Providing a competitive event for mares from diverse backgrounds who excel over a range of distances, the Angst Stakes has become an integral part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Between its inauguration and 2013, the Angst Stakes was classified as a Listed race. The continued rise in the quality of the field and the dependence on the race by trainers of older mares led to the Angst Stakes being upgraded to Group 3 prior to the 2014 edition.

The Angst Stakes has been variously held at Randwick and Rosehill Gardens. Much like the rest of NSW races, there was no Angst Stakes held in 2007 due to attempts to contain the outbreak of equine influenza. The Angst Stakes was once know as the Angst Mares Quality Handicap.

The distance of the Angst Stakes has changed a few times over the years, ranging from 1400m, to 1500m, to today’s distance of 1600m.

Notable Angst Stakes winners include Sky Watch (1994), Miss Zoe (2002), Neroli (2008) and Sharnee Rose (2013). In 2017 Dixie Blossoms made history as the first back-to-back Angst Stakes winner. Angst Stakes results and winning times since 2000 are listed below.
