Significant Bling, bred and owned by Blazing Meadows Farm, is the first 2-year-old filly to be voted Ohio horse of the year in the 49 years of the award.
Trained by Tim Hamm, who owns Blazing Meadows Farm, Significant Bling won all four of her 2012 starts, including the $100,000 Mountaineer Juvenile Fillies Stakes. The Ohio-bred filly by Too Much Bling was later disqualified from the purse money for her debut maiden win at Thistledown.
