BLINGLE BELLS (SAF)
Parade Leader (USA) - September Bells (SAF) by Western Winter (USA)

Almost a year ago to the day, the Backworth-bred filly Blingle Bells (Parade Leader - September Bells), blitzed her opposition in the Summer Speedsters at the Vaal for owner/trainer Leon Erasmus.

Yesterday, it was a case of deja vu for Backworth’s top earner of the 2010/2011 racing season, as Blingle Bells tore up the sand track to win going away in a hotly contested MR 80 Handicap over 1000m, under apprentice Gerrit Olwagen.

This win takes the five-year-old mare’s career earnings to R417,025.
