On any given day, up to eight Eliza Park stallions are represented by progeny – somewhere in the world! – but yesterday (23 November) there was just the sole entry: Delago Brom 4YO, The Other Man.
And, in keeping with Delago Brom’s winning run, The Other Man duly saluted over 1700m at Warrnambool … his second win (and second placing) from 11 outings.
Trained at the track by Simon Ryan (whose only other stable runner – Nebuchadnezzar – won in August), The Other Man is out of the Rancho Ruler mare, Raunchy Ruler.
Although he has a long way to go, The Other Man’s name pays homage to his older three quarter brother, Man Of Illusion who would campaign successfully in the USA (Churchill Downs Turf Sprint-G3) after winning at Doomben four years ago.
Another half brother in Really Good would win three Group events in Singapore.
The Other Man is raced by the same connections as Man Of Illusion, having been bred by David Kobritz’s DHK Investments (no stranger to success with Subzero and Danzero), Reuben Benkel’s Footy Racing and Albany Thoroughbreds.
