Unbeaten two-year-old Majestic Mach has maintained his form and finished his season with nine wins, after taking out the $100,000 Group 1 RQIS 2YO Colts and Geldings Final at Albion Park tonight.
Grant Dixon balanced up Majestic Mach early before going forward from gate seven eventually finding the lead shortly after the bell.
Dixon then gave the Mach Three gelding a breather before letting him loose at the home turn to go to the line a convincing winner from the Bill Crosby trained Slipaslygrin (Dale Chalk) who ran a gallant race to finish within four metres of the champ.
Brigadier Bronski driven by Matthew Neilson ran in third for trainer Bunger Johnson.
It was a great thrill for Dixon to win the race, as he has battled the flu in the week leading up to tonight, choosing to take only the one drive.
“He is a great horse, I just really wanted to get here tonight but special thanks to Mum, Dad and Trista for all their help during the week,” he said.
“Everyone back at the stable did a really good job getting him ready for tonight.
“He went around particularly easy, I had to tap him up the straight to keep his mind on the job as he tends to do it just a little too easy some times.
“I think next year they will make him go a bit faster, but tonight I am really wrapt with him.
Dixon was grateful for the Seymour’s support over the season and said Majestic Mach, who also claimed the APG and Nursery Pace Finals will go for a spell while he works out the future plans with Kevin and Kay.
