Bromac Lodge

Former NZ mare Immortal Change (5m Changeover-Arma Phoenix), another good performer for the Ar Miss-Amalight-Amaretto Bromac family, has won back-to-back races in New South Wales for her new ownership group.
After doing a good job for Burnham-based Overport Lodge trainer Mark Jones, she improved on a first-up third at Tamworth to win at Newcastle on November 30 in a strong 1:57 mile.
Immortal Change, now prepared in NSW Singleton satellite stable of Mark Jones and Aaron Goadsby, repeated from the ace draw over 1609m again at the Tamworth day meeting on Thursday, December 12, clearing out by 27.5 metres for junior claiming driver, Mitch Chappie.
A hot $1.22 favourite, she paced the 1609m in 1:57.3, quickening over her last 800m in 57.8s and her final 400m in 28.1s.
Immortal Change previously won four and was 13 times placed in 48 NZ starts, earning $46,170 in stakes for former Ashburton owner, Grant Smith, who operates Smithfield Raspberries, who initially purchased her cheaply.
She was bred to win races, being by 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).
Immortal Change's great grand-dam, 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.
Former Bromac Lodge mare Amaretto Bromac (Falcon Seelster-Arma Class), is represented at Auckland tonight by First Class, who will debut for the all-conquering All Stars stable in the $25,000 Breckon Farms Young Guns Heat
Amaretto Bromac, placed twice from only five starts, was sold to Goulbourn (NSW) owner, Mrs Helen Head, in July.
She's already the dam of smart West Australian filly Angel Bromac (p2, 1:56.9, 4 2 & 3YO wins, $56,500), the runner-up in the 2016 WA Diamond Classic 2YO Final, and 1:54.8 (1609m) Menangle (NSW), September, winner, Phil Bromac.
