Pedigree

Texas Bling is by a wickedly fast sprinter in Too Much Bling, making him a dubious candidate to last 1 1/4 miles.

Too Much Bling showed high speed as a three-year-old when capturing the San Vicente, Bay Shore and Carry Back, and was soundly beaten in his two tries at a mile.

A son of champion sprinter Rubiano, Too Much Bling stands in Texas, where he has had a good deal of regional success. His progeny are oriented toward shorter races, although a couple have won 1 1/16-mile stakes in restricted company.

Texas Bling is out of Anythingmore, who failed to win in four starts. Three of her five foals to race are likewise winless.

Anythingmore is a daughter of Country Pine, winner of the Withers, Discovery and 1 3/16-mile Queens County. Bred for stamina himself, Country Pine was not a fashionable sire, but he did get a few notable runners in Illinois Derby victor Rustic Light, Pennsylvania Derby hero Pineing Patty and turf marathoner Monkey Puzzle.

Anythingmore is in turn out of an unraced mare by the speedy Clever Trick. This family has more to its credit in the third generation, but that is an oasis in the desert of the maternal line. The overall lack of quality in much of the female line is a concern. For that reason, the influence of Too Much Bling is likely to overwhelm any traces of stamina from Country Pine.
