Dejarmbro Tr 3, 1:52.4 ($1,137,285), rated one of the top juvenile trotters produced in America in the last decade, will be available to breeders in Australia and in New Zealand via frozen semen from Global Stallion Management next season.

His service fee will be $4,400 including GST.

One of fastest and richest sons of Credit Winner, twice leading sire of trotters in North America, Dejarmbro is currently standing at Hickory Lane Farm in Ohio where he has commanded a full book in his first two seasons at the stud.

“We were looking for a quality son of Credit Winner and we are delighted to secure one of his best bred and best performed sons,” Global Stallion Management principal Scott Robertson said.

Dejarmbro, foaled in 2008, began racing as a two-year-old when he included among his eight successes six legs and the $200,000 final of the New York Sire Stakes. After winning an elimination of the Breeders Crown in 1:55, Dejarmbro, when eyeing his eighth win on end, went offstride as the warm favourite in the $600,000 Final.

Dejarmbro, as a three-year-old, was a racing sensation. In his 18-start campaign he earned $905,423, racing against top horses such as Manofmanymissions, Daylon Magician, Chapter Seven, Pastor Stephen and Broad Bahn.

He took his record of 1:52.4 winning the inaugural $500,000 Earl Beal Junior Memorial at Pocono Downs’ five-eighths track, matching the world record for three-year-old trotting colts set by Break The Bank K.

Dejarmbro won a heat of the $490,000 Kentucky Futurity before being edged out in the race-off by his very close relative Manofmanymissions and an elimination of the $280,000 Empire Breeders Classic (second in Final).

He was also placed in the Grand Circuit events including the $500,000 Colonial Trot (behind Manofmany missions), the $1-million Canadian Trotting Classic, the $166,000 Stanley Dancer Memorial and a heat of the Breeders Crown (4th in Final).

Dejarmbro is a member of the noted Star’s Pride line, that which produced Super Bowl, American Winner, Pine Chip, Sundon and co, all top sires. His sire Credit Winner (Tr 1:54) was a champion with stake earnings of $1,495,295 and has been one of America’s top sires for some time. He figures as the sire of two of America’s finest trotters in Chocolatier (Tr 1:53) and Crazed (Tr 1:52.4).

On his dam’s side Dejarmbro comes from a family which has made a real impact on the American breeding scene. His dam, Armbro Déjà Vu (Tr 1:55.4), not only left Dejarmbro but she is a sister to the world champion Manofmanymissions (Tr 1:52.2), the winner of the 2YO Breeders Crown and $1.2-million to date.

Armbro Déjà Vu was by champion sire and broodmare sire in the great Donerail (Tr 1:55.8) and was out of the Stakes winner Armbro Vanquish (Tr 1:55.8), by Garland Lobell from a great producer in Armbro Whirl, dam of Armbro Flori Tr 1:57 ($571,711) and the second dam of leading NZ trotting sire Monarchy (Tr 1:56.2).

Dejarmbro is a striking young horse in every respect, a bold striding trotter and one who boasts ‘black type’ in every remove of his pedigree.
