Fire Away showed his mettle in the mud Saturday afternoon at Pimlico Race Course, pulling ahead of a tight pack of contenders to win the Dixie Stakes by ¾ of a length.
Fire Away paid $4.60 to win. Unbridled Juan, who had a narrow lead going into the backstretch finished second, paying $2.60. Just Howard, who was running neck-and-neck with Unbridled Juan until the stretch, came in third.
O Dionysus finished last in the four-horse field.
