Congratulations to the connections of the winners of the two divisions of the Clarence Scharbauer Jr. Texas Stallion Stakes Series races on August 15 at Retama Park.
In the $65,000 My Dandy Division for 2-year-old colts and geldings, HDT Allied Management LLC’s My Bling, a son of Valor Farm stallion Too Much Bling, won by nearly three lengths with Ernesto Valdez-Jiminez riding for trainer George Bryant. The winner was bred by the late Ed Few and sold for $25,000 at this year’s Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale from the consignment of Benchmark Training Center.
Bryant and HDT Allied Management LLC also teamed on the runner-up Dance to My Song (by My Golden Song). Mucho Dinero (by Early Flyer) finished third.
In the $65,000 Darby’s Daughter Division for 2-year-old fillies, Douglas Scharbauer’s homebred Cowgirls Like Us gave Valor Farm stallions a sweep of both stakes as the daughter of My Golden Song won by 2 1/4 lengths with Jamie Theriot up for trainer Bret Calhoun.
Silver Moon Rising (by Silver City) and Pick N Run (by Intimidator) completed the top three.
