It was girls day out at Mt Gambier on Thursday (20 May) … well, at least for Eliza Park.
Darryl Dodson’s 4YO Delago Brom mare, Tam, got the bikkies in the Scott’s Transport Maiden Plate (1200m), while Delago Brom was also responsible for third placegetter: the 3YO filly Big Miss Brom (from the Bigstone mare, Big Amy).
Tam is out of the well named Noalcoholic mare, Teatotally, and was bred and is owned by South Australian RD Pfitzner.
(Great English family … do yourself a favour and google Lionel Holliday, owner of Tam’s fifth dam Phase)
The interesting thing about the Scott’s Transport Maiden however, is that Tam was ridden by Holly McKechnie and Big Miss Brom was steered by Amy Herrmann.
The only other female jockey competing in the race was Christine Puls, who rode Single Entity – a Jetball mare conceived during the stallion’s time at Eliza Park.
