Carlos Bromac looks for southern hat-trick

Carlos Bromac looks for southern hat-trick

Bettor’s Delight three year old Carlos Bromac, has been somewhat of a revelation in his two starts to date, with two wins to open his career, both in the deep south. In the first of these a fortnight ago, he drew well, gained the perfect trail on the back of one of his rivals tomorrow in Onesmartfella and proved much to strong in the run to the line. At his second start at Winton last Thursday, he went back from an awkward draw early and was last entering the last lap. After looping the field, he ran to the front at the 1200m and dictated the terms in front thereafter, He appeared to run to the line under his own steam, again running out a comfortable winner. 

Carlos Bromac is owned by a big group of owners who have tasted some good success in the past. Thomas, Ken and Mike Patterson make up Patterson Brothers Racing. Thomas Patterson gives details of the other owners involved in the horse. 

“We are joined by our Uncle, Mike Ward who is our business partner at the Commodore." 

“Then there are our friends the Bradleys. Peter and Trish, their son Simon and his wife Lauren, as well us another friend Ant Wilson.” 

“For both Simon and Ant, this is their second horse after racing the top mare Piccadilly Princess out of the Purdon/Rasmussen stable.” 

Another owner in the horse is Charlie Templeton. 

“It was Johnny that introduced us to Charlie who it turned out was a great supporter of the Commodore.” 

“So, it’s a great fit with a good team of owners.” 

Thomas’ uncle Father Pat Ward also had a share in the horse, but passed away last year.  

“He was an Aucklander and loved Carlos Spencer. So, he’d be enjoying winding up the Cantabs with a horse named Carlos!” 

Carlos Bromac’s task tomorrow is the $15,000 Nuggets Final at Invercargill. As good as he has been in his two starts to date, this will be his biggest challenge after drawing barrier eight. Drawn inside him are two highly fancied rivals in Willison and Onesmartfella.  

Willison was a very good 4th at Addington last Friday night behind the still unbeaten I’m A Gigolo, form that looks very good for this race. Onesmartfella led, but faced pressure in front on debut. He fought strongly when headed and looks well placed to dictate terms again.  

Carlos Bromac will have his third driver in three starts tomorrow with Tim Williams replacing Nathan Williamson, who is committed to Onesmartfella.
