The first ever progeny out of a Miracle Mile winning broodmare will be offered for sale at the 2022 Neds Australian Pacing Gold Sydney Sale.

Following the recent enhancements to the Australian Pacing Gold Race Series and the benefits offered to vendors, the ownership group of Baby Bling felt it opportune for the highest bidder to have their chance to purchase and race a platinum level horse.

The athletic Colt that will be on offer is by Sweet Lou and was pedigree matched for racetrack success.

He has a 4 x 4 sire cross to Artsplace & Jate Lobell and a 4 x 4 dam cross to Delinquent Account.

He will continue to be nurtured by renowned equine yearling sellers Manx Park and will be prepared for the sale by Alana Toulmin, whose yearlings looked spectacular at the 2021 Australian Pacing Gold Sydney Sale.

Baby Bling was an outstanding racehorse, winning three Group 1 events:

  • Miracle Mile
  • Nepean Conveyors Mares Classic
  • Australian Oaks

She also won the Group 2 Robin Dundee Stakes and the Group 3 Gold Coast Oaks, Teeny Teeny Stakes and Goulburn Cup.

In winning the Miracle Mile she broke the Australasian Mares Record over the distance of 1 Mile, clocking 1:50.5.

She won the 2013 Australian 4YO & Older Pacing Mare of the Year and the NSW 4YO & Older Pacing Mare of the Year Titles.

Baby Bling won over $850,000 in prizemoney.

Her dam Alldatglittersisgold has been a three-time Australian Broodmare of the Year.

She has had the following foals of racing age:

The best of her progeny is the recently retired entire Bling It On.

His record speaks for itself:

  • 18-time Group winner (6 x Group 1, 6 x Group 2, 6 x Group 3)
  • Set World Records at Albion Park (2100-2200m) and Melton (2200-2300m)
  • 2013 Australian 2YO Pacer of the Year
  • 2013 NSW 2YO of the Year
  • 2014 Australian 3YO Pacer of the Year
  • 2014 NSW 3YO of the Year
  • 2017 NSW Horse of the Year

His Group 1 Wins included the:

  • Seymour Nursery Stakes (2YO)
  • Breeders Crown (2YO)
  • Queensland Derby (3YO)
  • Gold Coast Cup (5YO) – In Track and World Record time
  • Hunter Cup (6YO) – In Track Record time
  • Victoria Cup (9YO) – In Track and World Record time

The progeny of Bling It On have hit the ground running with 5 winners from 10 starters to date.

The Sweet Lou Colt for sale is an athletic weanling. Manx Park have reported “he is a neat forward type with good conformation and a great temperament”.

With the 4 x 4 cross to Artsplace and Delinquent Account, it is no surprise to the ownership group that Sweet Lou has had success as a sire over Western Terror broodmares, the best being:

No Lou Zing (Sweet Lou’s third highest prizemoney earner)

1:49.1, $534,058

USA Pennsylvania Championship – 3YO Colt

USA Jennas Beach Boy – 3YO Colt

Lyons Night Hawk

1:49.4, $283,713

USA Bluegrass – 2YO Colt

To date Baby Bling has had three foals of racing age. The first, Kayes Memory, a filly named after her late owner Kaye Kilgour, won at her first race start as a 2yo and has recently been retired. Her second foal was born with abnormal hocks and was unable to race. Her third foal is a 2yo filly who is progressing well and is being aimed to trial in mid to late September.

The ownership group were always looking to maintain Baby Bling’s early progeny, though with the enhancements to the Neds Australian Pacing Gold Series, the time was right to provide buyers with the best opportunity to purchase a perfectly bred Colt, a potential winner of the rich $500,000 Final, that they can lead out of the Inglis Riverside Stables Complex at Warwick Farm and place straight into the back of their trainer’s float.
