Delago Brom notched up his fourth stakes winner on Saturday (3 April) in the Director’s Cup-G2 at Taipa with the rather appropriately named Ecstatic Macau (below).
The ultra-consistent performer raced in Australia as Classic Brom, actually becoming Delago Brom’s first black type horse with a second on debut in the Blue Diamond Preview-LR.
Moving to Macau in July 2008, the newly minted Ecstatic Macau has since raced on 24 occasions for seven wins and eight placings, mostly in top company.
At his first start in Macau, Ecstatic Macau ran third in the Lisboa Challenge-G3, along with further placings in the Macau Derby-G1, Summer Trophy-G3 and Autumn Trophy-G3.
The Director’s Cup-G2 win on Saturday was his second on the trot.
Bred by Otto Hoffelner (who also raced Delago Brom), Ecstatic Macau is out of the Brief Truce mare, A Class Act.
Ecstatic Macau wasn’t the only Delago Brom winner on Saturday with the Gerald Egan trained Goadel scoring over 2050m at Wodonga.
Bred by John Cassin, Goadel is out of the Hula Town mare Our Charisse and hails from a family of North American Group One winners.
