Cindy Bromac (Addington) and Braeview Bomber (Globe Derby, Adelaide) were convincing repeat winners last weekend with Bromac Lodge connections.
The former extended a big-winning record for the progency of Classic Blue Jeans, justifying her favouritism in the R40-51 Spectators - Open 'Til Late Mobile Pace at Addington on Friday, February 23.
The 4YO Somebeachsomewhere mare was well positioned by top driver Ricky May, coming through from the second row to secure a three-back trail on the outer.
She swept up wide with 100m to run and ran clear by 1 and 1/2 lengths in a 1:58.6 rate for the 1950m, the leaders last 800m in 57.8s.
This was her third win for Woodend Beach trainers, Greg and Nina Hope, and her second in her last four starts, having won at Timaru on January 18 in a faster 1:57.6 rate (2000m).
Classic Blue Jeans (Camluck-Oh Please), now a 22-year-old, is the dam of nine individual winners of 77 races including Attorney General (1:48.4, US), formerly the fastest NZ-bred pacer.
Braeview Bomber (7g Courage Under Fire-Braeview Express) furthered his good recent record in Adelaide claiming races, delivering as a $2.40 favourite in the Frank Borg Pawnbrokers Claiming Pace.
His dam Braeview Express is a half-sister to Bromac Lodge mare Zante Beach, the dam of Zeta Bromac (p3, 1:55.5), (My) Zach Bromac (1:52h, US), Zorro Bromac (1:56.6) and this season's three-year-old winner Zion Bromac.
Braeview Bomber, who settled some 25m from the leaders early, improved three wide with cover from the 600m and won by 2.9 metres in a 1:57.8 rate for the 1800m.
This was his his second win in his last four starts, and the 13th of his career, taking his earnings to ,103.
Braeview Bomber is a brother to Dont Hold Back, who won the Group 2 Australasian Breeders Crown 4YO colts and geldings Pacing Final at Melton in August.
