Simba Bromac, despite a wide front row draw, racked up his 13th 4YO win in 18 appearances at Gloucester Park, Perth, on Friday, June 29.
A son of former Bromac Lodge stand-out broodmare Sabrina Bromac, Simba Bromac eased to $2.40 second favouritism at the jumpl
A flood of money came for fellow NZ-bred Waimac Attack, who was first-up from the ace for the Greg and Skye Bond stable, but despite having the inside running, he found Simba Bromac too tough an adversary.
Waimac Attack held the early lead for Ryan Warwick, but Simba Bromac surged to the front for driver Chris Lewis with a lap to run and proved much too strong.
Simba Bromac, a gelded son of Art Official in the Nathan Turvey stable, won as he liked by 7.8 metres from Waimac Attack, who couldn't stay with the Bromac Lodge-bred pacer in the run home.
The winner rated 1:57.8 for the mobile 2130m, quickening over his last 800m in 57.5s and his final 400m in 27.7s.
Simba Bromac, raced by Karl Deiley, also won once and was three times placed in six 3YO starts. His career earnings now stand at $71,487 from 14 wins in 24 overall starts.
His dam, the 17-year-old unraced Sabrina Bromac (Live Or Die-Soho) is the dam of 10 to race, for nine individual winners of 160 races for $1.45 million.
She was sold during the last two months, in foal to Always B Miki (1:46), during the Bromac Lodge mixed stock dispersal sale to New South Wales horseman, Jake Stockton.
