Got Bling tops Tah Dah

Email

Got Bling will be trying to replicate the success of her half-sister Littlebitabling when she takes on seven other Ohio-bred 2-year-old fillies in the $50,000 Kevin Goemmer Tah Dah Stakes. Trainer Tim Hamm won the race last year with Littlebitabling, and both fillies are out of the Ohio broodmare of the year Rose Colored Lady. Their half-brother Too Much Bling won three graded stakes last year at 3 and has earned more than $500,000.

Got Bling was well backed at Churchill in her first two outings, and managed a fourth and an eighth. Hamm then took her home to Thistledown, where she won by 13 3/4 lengths in her last out, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 62, some 13 points higher than Littlebitabling earned winning the Tah Dah last year. Got Bling had a bullet work on July 23, signaling her readiness for the 5 1/2-furlong Tah Dah.

Hamm's other entrants, Two Faced and Title Princess, will be coupled in the wagering with Got Bling, as Blazing Meadow Farm has an interest in all three fillies. Title Princess won at River last out by 9 1/4 lengths, and Two Faced won at River at first asking on June 15.

Trainer Bill Napier sends out two: Cincy Girl, who won her local debut against open boys in ridden-out fashion on June 3, and Indian Ink, who had a bullet work on July 24.

Houston Heist will be well backed off her debut win for trainer Doug Cowans. She was sent off as the 1-2 favorite and won impressively on July 14 against Ohio-bred maiden fillies. She will be ridden by Rodney Prescott.
