IN-FORM pacer Blinding Light continued his love affair with South Australia with another win at Globe Derby yesterday.
Having five starts since arriving from the west, Blinding Light has registered four wins and a second for trainer David Harding.
Impressed with the manner in which the son of Charles Bronson has progressed, Harding believes Blinding Light will remain competitive as he rises in class.
“I actually got him before Christmas and had some of the better races in mind, but he got sick and I had to turn him out,” Harding said. “As soon as I started winding him up his track work was terrific and I expected him to do well.
“He has gotten better with every run and is at his peak now, so I expect him to win a few more yet.
“I don’t have any specific plans for him, just find the right races and hope he can keep going as well as he is.”
Driven by Harding’s partner, Dani Hill, Blinding Light was caught three-wide early before eventually being settled outside the leader, Allday Bliss.
Forging his way to the front along the home straight, the gelding scored by six-and-a-half metres from the pacemaker, with The Dapper Don nine metres away third.
“That was another good run from him,” Harding said. “He has won while leading, coming from behind and in the breeze, so he’s got a bit of versatility.”
Rating a slick 1:55.7 over 1800 metres, the six-year-old is owned by a large group, which includes Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin.
