Trendy Bromac (4m Mach Three-Tasmcmanian) was successful second-up in Victoria at Cobram on Thursday, April 19, for owner Dianne Reilly from the stable of Josh Aiken.
Formerly raced in NZ by Dianne and Bromac Lodge from the Michael House stable, Trendy Bromac was smart in NZ.
She won two of her 12 starts, taking a 1:54.6 winning mile mark at Wyndham, and being race-timed in 1:53.2 when third in a Nevele R Fillies Heat at Ashburton, won by Bonnie Joan.
Trendy Bromac delivered as a short $1.80 favourite at Cobram, coming off the second row to win by 2.3 metres in a 1:59.1 rate for the 1670m.
Bromac Lodge still own her dam Tasmcmanian, who showed promise in the USA for trainer Peter Walsh, but was unraced due to injury.
She has quickly made her mark at stud, leaving NZ 3YO record-holder Tas Man Bromac (1:56.5, 14 wins from 37 starts & $152,086), now a winner of four of six starts in West Austrlaia, including the Gr. 3 Northam Pacing Cup.
Besides Trendy Bromac, she's also the dam of minor winner Tilly Bromac and last season's 2YO filly qualifier, Tempest Bromac (p2, 2:00.3), for Southland trainer, Nathan Williamson, from her first four foals.
Tasmcmanian (McArdle-Shy Devil) belongs to a huge-winning USA family, being a 1/2-sister to 9 winners, 6 in 2:00, including Art's Conquest (p3, 1:50, 12 wins & $880,576), Lifeotheparty (p2, 1:54), Angaal (p3, 1:52.4) and Pop Art (p3, 1:53).
Grand-dam SHY DEVIL (p3, 1:53.6, 10 wins & $169,185) has also left fillies to have bred on, with Angaal leaving Little Brown Jug Final runner-up Western Fame (p3, 1:50.2h).
Pop Art has left Part Shark (1:51, 25 wins & $354,014), Rustlin Goodtime (1:50.6) and Pop Diva (p3, 1:52.6, herself the dam of fast 3YO, Beat The Drum (1:49.4, 16 wins & $476,969); and Art Of Design, dam of $2 million winner Chancey Lady (1:48.8, 43 wins) and Camille (1:48.6, 37 wins & $1.2 million).
Victorian interests have just secured Tasmcmanian's weanling colt foal by top classic-producing sire Art Major.
She is currently in foal to champion sire, Bettor's Delight.
