Former well-performed NZ pacer Torrid Bromac lowered his USA record to 1:53.3 (fifths) on a half-mile track with his latest win at Yonkers Raceway, New York, on March 1.
His Bettor's Delight yearling half-sister, Makie Bromac, is still available for purchase after being passed in at the NZ Premier Yearling Sale in Christchurch last month.
Torrid Bromac (5h Courage Under Fire-Tanisa Bromac) trailed from the one gate for much of the ,000 conditioned pace, finishing best late to win by a neck.
He's won four of six US starts this year, amassing ,300 in stakes.
His total USA record is eight wins and three placings from 22 starts for $47,175.
Torrid Bromac also won eight of 38 NZ starts for $64,663.
His dam Tanisa Bromac (TT, 1:58.1) is also the dam of Tijuana Bromac (1:57.5, 15 wins & $124,897), (Black) Mr Mach (1:56.5, nine wins & $84,109), and the minor winners, Trinity Bromac (two, Bettor's Delight sister to Makie Bromac) and Twitter Bromac (one).
Tanisa Bromac has a sixth qualifier in Verdelho, a Mach Three filly who qualified at two for trainer Brent Mangos at Pukekohe last June in a 2:03.8 rate (2050m).
Tanisa Bromac's dam Tanisa Vance (Vance Hanover-Tanisa), who won once, is a half-sister to four "black type" winners, headed by big international winner of $400,000 in Ross The Boss (1:50, US, 10 NZ wins, 24 USA wins).
She's also a half-sister to Tallyho Bromac (1:53.7, mile rate, Aust, 23 wins & ,147), Kotare Jaeger (p2, 1:56.8, 10 wins $72,343) and Habeebee (formerly Toffee Bromac, 1:54.8, US, six wins).
This is the family of other fast US winners in Fake Denario (1:48.4), Tullow (1:50.2) and Kotare Yael (1:50.4), and former NZ 3YO mile record holder Kotare Mach (p3, 1:53, 16 wins & $268,138).
