Whistling Dixie Plays Winning Tune

The best is yet to come from the WS-bred and sold filly Whistling Dixie who won at the second time of asking at Trentham. The Pins two-year-old finished runner-up at her Te Rapa on debut last month and comfortably went one better on Saturday.
Trained by Graeme and Debbie Rogerson, she sat up with the pace and rounded off strongly in the straight under Michael Walker. “We came down with a fair bit of confidence and she’s going to be a lovely three-year-old,” stable representative Gary Barlow said.
A $30,000 Karaka yearling, Whistling Dixie is raced by Hunter Valley farm Segenhoe Stud and is out of the Danasinga mare Zephyr Song. She is a half-sister to the Gr 2 Surround Stakes winner Glenview, dam of Gr 1 South African Derby winner Timber Trader, with their mother the Gr 1 New Zealand Oaks winner Zepherin.
