Thought good enough to contest the Listed ATC Gimcrack Stakes at the very start of the season, promising filly Nixon broke her maiden on the last day of the season when saluting at Geelong.
The David Hayes trained daughter of General Nediym was resuming from a spell and turned in a tenacious effort to score a head win in the 1100 metre fillies maiden.
Nixon (pictured as a yearling) was an $80,000 purchase for Mark Pilkington Bloodstock from the Three Bridges Thoroughbreds draft at the 2011 Magic Millions Yearling Sale and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Yin Yang Master and Crazy Deputy being one of eight winners from Crazy Fling (USA).
Interestingly, Nixon was one of two filles by General Nediym sold at that sale by Three Bridges, the other being smart stakes-winner Hoss Amor that made $100,000.
Crazy Fling was one of 124 mares covered in the first season at stud for young Fastnet Rock stallion Stryker, who stands at Three Bridges Thoroughbreds at a fee of $11,000.
