Rock ‘n’ Pop’s son excels in Guineas

Rock 'n' Pop

Promising three-year-old Go Dixie has earned a black type credit for his Waikato Stud-based stallion Rock ‘n’ Pop.

The gelding successfully bridged the gap to black type company with a bold third in today’s Gr.3 Sunshine Coast Guineas.

Trained by Scott Morrisey at the Gold Coast, Go Dixie had broken his maiden at his lead-up run at Toowoomba.

He was taken to the front in the Guineas by rider Paul Hammersley and kicked on strongly to finish third behind Bostonian.

Go Dixie was initially purchased as a yearling at Karaka for $60,000 and on-sold for $220,000 at the Ready to Run Sale.

He is out of the Cape Cross mare Cape Merlot and a half-brother to the stakes performer Elusive Red.

Go Dixie hails from the family of the Gr.1 Victoria Derby winner Omnicorp and more recently the Gr.2 Travis Stakes winner Abidewithme.
