Any which way you looked at the final of the Alabar Super Series for 4 year olds at the harness racing meeting at Addington tonight ( August 8th) it appeared to be a two horse affair between Dalton Bromac and Mighty Major.
Due to the preferential draw in play for the final and their assessment, they both drew wide on the front line over the 1950 meters
The Ken Barron trained Mighty Major with Blair Orange in the sulky flew the gate from barrier six and grabbed the lead in the first 100 meters.
The Brendan Hill trained Dalton Bromac with Ricky May in the sulky worked forward from barrier eight and made the lead with 1400 to go.
From there Ricky May just put the foot on the accelerator in the freezing conditions.
Going past the 500 meters mark it was obvious there was only going to be two horses in it but as they turned for home that quickly became one as Dalton Bromac just ran away and hid for an emphatic win.
At the finish line Dalton Bromac had 2 1/4 lengths to spare from Mighty Major with a further 11 lengths back to Explosive Star in third.
It was the fifth win from just eight starts for the son of Major In Art and show cased just how talented he is.
Dalton Bromac ran the 1950 meters in 2:21.3, a mile rate of 1:56.5 with a last half in 56.8 and the last quarter in 26.3 - and that was in conditions that were not conducive to fast times.
Mighty Major went super but ran into an emerging star but just as easily beat the rest.
People should be in no doubt.
Dalton Bromac is one serious racehorse.
