Amaretto Bromac, who has a sale price reduction from Bromac Lodge to $5000 (plus GST), in foal to Courage Under Fire, is from the same family as winners in both NZ and North America over the last week.
Titanium, a half-brother by Tintin In America to the qualified Amaretto Bromac (Falcon Seelster-Arma Class, by Talk About Class-Ar Miss), notched his second USA win in seven starts on Tuesday (NZ time).
The former Terry and Glenis Chmiel-trained Titanium scored again at Yonkers Raceway, New York, in a $16,000 pace for the Paul Blumenfield stable, winning in 1:56.
A winner of three and 11 times placed in 30 NZ starts, he has taken a 1:54.2 mark on the half-mile circuit at Yonkers.
His North American earnings have advanced to nearly $26,000, on top of the $30,395 he won in NZ.
The family had another NZ winner at Addington last Friday when Immortal Change staged a last-to-first victory for the Mark Jones stable.
Immortal Change, who was notching her second win in 25 starts, paced the mobile 2600m in 3:16.4 (2:01.5, mile rate) to beat One Direction.
She's a four-year-old daughter of 2008 New Zealand Cup winner Changeover (1:53.4) from Arma Phoenix, a qualified but unraced Falcon Seelster mare from Ultimate Arma (Holmes Hanover-Armalight, by Timely Knight-Ar Miss).
Ultimate Arma won one for the late Weedons trainer Jack Smolenski but has made her mark at stud, leaving 10 qualifiers and seven individual race-winners, including Dead Calm (1:58.3, nine NZ wins, two Aust. for $106,023), Arma May Zing (1:59, seven wins from 14 starts) and Cindi Arma (1:56.5, four wins from 19 starts).
Arma The One (Badlands Hanover-Ultimate Arma), who won twice, is the dam of five Australian winners including Arma The Gun (1:51.9, eight wins from only 14 starts for $73,358), who ran third to Salty Robyn in the 2017 Gr. 2 Hondo Grattan 4YO pace at Menangle.
She’s also the dam of Arma Hotshot (1:55.6, five wins & $46,305), Arma Naughty (1:55.5, two wins) and Armalife (1:58.6, seven wins & $42,965).
Champion mare Armalight (1:55.4, mile rate, 2000m, 18 wins & $277,520), the 1981 New Zealand Cup winner & 1982 NZ Harness Horse of the Year, was the top-winning daughter of Ar Miss, herself a winner of eight including a NZ Oaks and NZ Sapling Stakes.
Amaretto Bromac, a now 10-year-old, who qualified in a 2:00.8 rate but was retired after two starts, is already the dam, first-up, of Angel Bromac (1:56.9, four wins, runner-up in the 2016 WA Diamond Classic 2YO Final).
Her third foal, Phil Bromac (by Washington VC), sold for $60,000 at last year's NZ Premier Yearling Sale.
Arma Courage (1:58.9, three wins from 21 starts), a Courage Under Fire half-sister to Amaretto Broamc, is the dam of race-placed two-year-old filly Arma Indie, race-timed in 1:55.2 when second to Princess Tiffany in the Gr. 1 $150,000 Harness Jewels 2YO Fillies Diamond at Cambridge on June 2.
This is also the family of Ohoka Punter (1:52.4, 25 wins incl. 2013 Northern Derby, $1 million earner), Arma Xpress (top Queensland winner Majestic Mach (1:53.9, 35 wins & $976,397), former NZ 4YO Superstars Championship winner Bruzem (18 wins, 1:52.6, US & $178,925), Spankem (p2, 1:54, 5 2 and 3YO wins from 14 starts, $241,194), London Pride (1:51.6, US, 28 wins and $600,000) and London Express (1:50.6, US, 32 wins and $350,000).
