Baby Bling
Baby Bling - is among the field for The Linc Group Warragul Cup.
It is not every day a winner of the famous Miracle Mile harness race competes at Warragul, but that is the case on Sunday when Baby Bling lines up in The Linc Group Warragul Cup.
 
Baby Bling has won over $800,000 in stakes from just 47 starts, including the 2013 Miracle Mile in Sydney, plus a host of other feature races including the Goulburn Cup, Australian Oaks, Gold Coast Oaks and WA Mares Classic.
 
Connections transferred the mare to Lara trainer Dean Braun recently, and one start in Victoria so far netted a recent placing at Melton.
 
Sunday's Cup has attracted one of the strongest fields in the history of the race.
The first Warragul Cup to be run from behind the mobile barrier is the last race in the annual Victorian Country Cup Championship, and the result of this weekend's race determines which horse wins the coveted Championship title.
 
Arber and Savesomtimetodream, both engaged Sunday, have won three Country Cup races each this season.
 
Arber heads the Championship points, however if he misses a place on Sunday and Savesomtimetodream wins, the award will be a tie.
 
Seven of the 11 drivers in Sunday's race have won the Cup before. Among those trying to add his name to the Cup honour roll will be Trafalgar horseman Glenn Hunter, who steers Astronaut in the event.
 
Glenn will also drive Dawn Tears for his dad Chris in the other feature race, the Eddie Evison Memorial Trotters Cup. Fellow local Gatesys Girl will also be looking to improve its recent form in this event.
 
With good weather forecast a bumper crowd is expected to converge on Warragul for this Sunday's race. Racing and activities commence at around 12:55pm with the Warragul Cup timed to go at 4:35pm.
