When you brake or chop the throttle abruptly when the car is oversteering, it aggravates the situation by removing even more weight from the rear tires and reducing traction further. The correct response is to countersteer while applying some throttle. Apply more throttle as needed if you want to sustain the drift, but not on the street.

But I am puzzled why the Stability Control did not come on. The car doesn't want to oversteer easily with it on.

Don't take this wrong, but it's probably time for you to sign up for a 1-2 day Performance Driving School. I still go them every couple of years to keep my skill level up.
