Bred by A Spyratos (who has also retained a share), Desiago is out of the Zephyr Zip mare Sea Gems (a 6-time winning half sister to Tranquil Star winner Seapost), while Sir Peppercorn – bred by A Hall – is out of the Halo mare Wendy Peppercorn, from the family of Dubai World Cup hero Curlin.
Delago Brom is clearly one of the best value sires standing in Australia and here’s a few reasons why:
- The son of Encosta de Lago has now produced over 100 winners including five stakes winners
- During June he notched up 13 winners – four of those days he didn’t have runners so in effect he’s averaging a winner every two days
- In 2010 alone he has produced a stakes horse for every crop of racing age: 5YO (Ecstatic Macau), 4YO (De Fine Lago), 3YO Danaupair Starlet (Group winner and Group One placed), 2YO Radha Rani – and has a budding superstar in 3-time city winning 2YO Condelago
- Delago Brom has had runners in six countries this season: Australia, New Zealand, Macau, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia – his progeny have won in four while his sole runner in New Zealand is yet to score in three starts … however, his starter in Hong Kong has won $A48,700
- He has produced winners from 900m to 2500m, of his eight stakes horses, four are male and four are female and they win on fast, good, dead, slow and heavy!
- Delago Brom’s yearlings have sold up to $75,000 in 2010
… not bad off a $5,500 service fee!
Even better when you take into account that Eliza Park is again offering its special 3 for 10 deal this spring, whereby you can send three mares to either Clangalang, Delago Brom, Sharkbite and Written Tycoon for $10,000.
