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.
