Tullow, from a half-sister to former Bromac Lodge broodmare Tanisa Bromac (TT, 1:58.1), won his second race of the year in North America at Yonkers, New York, winning a $17,500 pace on Monday (NZ time).
Racing for the Jose Godinez stable, the Mach Three-Tessa Bromac gelding settled second from the five gate and outfinished pacemaking Hot Deuce to win in 1:52 for the mile, two laps of the half-mile track.
Tullow, driven by Jason Bartlett, finished off with a closing 400m in 27.6s.
NZ-bred Tullow left NZ after failing to win in 10 northern starts at two and three, placing three times. His career took off across the Tasman, becoming a 1:52.7 Menangle miler in New South Wales, winning 16 Australian races for $149,927.
He lowered his mile record to 1:50.4 (10ths) on a mile track in the USA last year.
Tullow's dam Tessa Bromac is a Mystical Shark half-sister to Tanisa Bromac (TT, 1:58.1), by Live Or Die-Tanisa Vance, by Vance Hanover-Tanisa, by Smooth Fella-Tanya Lee.
Tanisa Bromac, a half-sister to Ross The Boss (1:50, US), Tallyho Bromac (1:53.7, Aust), Habeebee (1:54.8, US) and Kotare Jaeger (p2, 1:56.9), is the dam of six to race for five individual winners including Torrid Bromac (1:51.8h, US, 19 wins; eight NZ, 11 USA, for over $130,000).
Torrid Bromac also raced at Yonkers on Monday (NZ time), running third in $23,000 pace to other fellow NZ-breds, Mister Daytona and Dream Out Loud, the winner going 1:53.4.
Halswell owner Max Taylor, who raced Torrid Bromac in seven of his eight NZ wins, secured his dam Tanisa Bromac from Bromac Lodge last November.
She has subsequently left a filly bred by Mr Taylor by Roll With Joe (1:48.4), a siring brother to champion stallion Bettor's Delight.
Roll With Joe is the sire of boom NSW 3YO, Ignatius (1:51.3), who racked up his 14th win from 15 starts in last Sunday's $150,000 NSW Breeders Challenge at Menangle for trainer-driver James Rattray.
Tanisa Bromac’s other individual winners are Tijuana Bromac (1:57.5, 15 wins & $124,897), good West Australian winner (Black) Mr Mach (1:56.5, nine wins & $84,109), Twitter Bromac (three wins) and Trinity Bromac (two wins).
Twitter Bromac, who won twice at Manawatu in March-April, was subsequently exported to Australia in June.
Sheza Bromac, a 2YO sister to Twitter Bromac (by Mach Three), has been leased out by Bromac Lodge.
Makie Bromac, a yearling filly by Bettor's Delight from Tanisa Bromac, is to be raced by Russley trainer Brad Mowbray and Bromac Lodge Ltd.
