Delago Brom is one of the best value sires standing in Australia.
In the last two days the Encosta de Lago stallion has produced a double in Queensland with Neurotic Princess and Ombre and, yesterday, a two state double via Kinetics and Delago Dragon.
Kicking off with the win of Unpickable at Kranji on Sunday (his third victory in Singapore), Delago Brom (above) nearly notched up another double on Tuesday when Model Rules scored and Look Now ran a lip second at $51.
With no runners on Wednesday, he then plopped the double at Rockhampton on Thursday with Neurotic Princess (ex. Xaar mare Myxaar) and Ombre (ex. Redding mare A Scarlet Lady), followed by Kinetics (ex. Scenic mare Scenic Lil) scoring at Port Macquarie before Delago Dragon (ex. Regal Classic mare Bunyip Belle) finished off the working week with a win at Traralgon.
Delago Brom is having a super year … since January he has produced winners in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau and produced black type horses from every crop of racing age: first cropper, Ecstatic Macau (a Group winner in Macau and multiple Group One placed), Group placed 4YO De Fine Lago, the Group winning filly and Queensland Oaks-G1 placed Danaupair Starlet and the stakes winning 2YO Radha Rani.
And perhaps the pick of the bunch is the brilliant juvenile Condelago (below) who has won three on the trot since his debut in April and looks to be a real contender for spring honours.
You’ll often find terms like ‘bread and butter’ and ‘breed to race’ mentioned in relation to Delago Brom, but when you consider that his yearlings have sold up to $75,000 in 2010 and the horse stands at a fee of only $5,500, there’s no reason to believe he won’t make you a buck in the sale ring too.
