There’s a bottle of red in the Eliza Park office with Delago Brom plastered over the front of it and I guarantee it will be M.I.A. by Monday.
The Delago Broms just seem to get better with age and his last three runners: De Fine Lago (4YO), Broms Girl (5YO) and The Rehearsal (5YO) are the proof in the pudding.
Tony Vasil’s De Fine Lago won his second race on the trot at Ballarat on Wednesdsay (18 November) – his third overall – and has only been out of the money once in his last 11 outings.
Meanwhile, a day later in NSW, Slickpix bred and slick on the track, Broms Girl won her fourth race – over the 1614m at Coffs Harbour – and, coupled with 10 placings, has now accumulated over $75k in stakes.
Finally, The Rehearsal was also dressed up with no place to go (in the home straight), just missing out by a whisker over the 1150m at Rockhampton.
Bred by JT Gunning and Shane Gledhill, and hailing from the Rancho Ruler mare, Miss La La, The Rehearsal has won two and finished with a cheque at his last three outings.
