Harness racing’s Cobbitty Equine Farm made the decision to stand one of their resident stallions Bling It On in Queensland and there was better advertisement for the Sunshine State’s new stallion than Saturday night.
At Albion Park, two-year-old pacer Hold Onto Ya Bling gave his sire Bling It On another feature winner.
Hold Onto Ya Bling clocked 1:57.3 when winning the Group 3 Paleface Adios Classic – the pacer’s third win in seven starts.
The success made Hold Onto Ya Bling the second-richest progeny by the stallion with Group 1 winner Madrid holding the top position with earnings of $206,375.
It also gave Cobbitty Equine Farms’ stallions a feature race double on the night with For A Reasongelding Kashed Up winning the Group 2 Queensland Sun.
Trained by Gemma Hewitt, the four-year-old rated 1:54.8 and in the process earned an invitation to this Saturday night’s Group 1 $305,000 The Rising Sun.
Both Bling It On and For A Reason are amongst the top 10 two-year-old sires in Queensland, as well as Huntsville that also stands at Cobbitty Equine Farm.
