Smart pacer Blingittothemax, who was bred and reared at Benstud Standardbreds for long-time clients Harvey Kaplan and the Kilgour family, notched his eight success and sent his earnings over the $60,000 mark at Launceston on Wednesday night (September 11).
The seven-year-old gelding led throughout and reeled off the last two fractions 28.8 and 28.9. He rated 1:59.6 over the 2200 metre trip.
Blingittothemax is one of the progeny of dual Broodmare of the Year Alldatglittersisgold NZ, the dam of seven winners from seven starters including Group 1 winners Bling It On and Baby Bling.
