Delago Brom has again been thrusting his best hoof forward with two winners in the past three days: Back Chattin’ Miss at Pakenham on Monday (26 October) and L’aubaine at Balakalva on Wednesday (28 October).
Back Chattin’ Miss was recording her second career win over the 1414m journey at Pakenham and has been a model of consistency of late with two wins and two placings from her past five outings.
Trained and part-owned by Kevin Butter, the 4YO from Noalcoholic mare Fantolic was is also owned by Ken Breese, who has enjoyed considerable success with home breds.
Fantolic went winless, but is a half sister to stakes winner of 12 races, Mighty Way and is closely related to multiple stakes winner Official Receiver (10 wins) and the brilliant filly Tickle My (11 wins, including Sunline Stakes-G2) which was also bred and raced by Ken.
Jon O’Connor’s 3YO, L’aubaine recorded his second win on the trot with a last gasp thriller over 1307m at Balaklava and obviously has a considerable slice of ability with two wins and five placings from eight outings. Indeed, his only unplaced effort was a fourth at Morphettville, so his owners can boast cheques from every start.
Bred and part-owned by Simon Macheff, L’aubaine is from the Monde Bleu mare Soeur Blue, winner of four races in South Australia and dam of city winner Bleury Jeuney.
While the Delago Brom double is noteworthy, the Encosta de Lago stallion’s consistency is clearly one of his greatest assets with seven of his eight runners since Saturday either winning or placing.
Indeed, of the 165 Delago Brom runners thus far, 87% have snared cheques for connections.
