Too Much Bling moving to stand in Texas


Too Much Bling, a multiple graded stakes winner, will relocate from Sequel Stallions in Florida to Lane's End Texas for the 2008 breeding season.

Lane's End Texas is located near Hempstead, and is owned by Will Farish.

Too Much Bling will stand for $6,000 live foal in 2008, a reduction from his $10,000 fee in 2007, his initial year at stud.

Too Much Bling, a 4-year-old son of Rubiano, won the Grade 2 Carry Back and Grade 2 San Vicente stakes and the Grade 3 Bay Shore Stakes in 2006. He also won the San Miguel Stakes and finished second in the Grade 2 Woody Stephens Breeders' Cup Stakes, another Grade 2 event, that year. Too Much Bling also is Grade 1-placed, having finished third behind First Samurai and Henny Hughes in the 2005 Hopeful. He retired with a career record of 5 wins from 11 starts, 1 second, and 2 thirds and earnings of $509,674.

Too Much Bling is out of the stakes-winning Formal Dinner mare Rose Colored Lady. He is a half-brother to Ohio stakes winners Barnsy, Ready for Roses, and Littlebitabling and to stakes-placed Got Bling.
