Brilliant mare Savvy Bromac made the $50,000 WASBA Breeders Stakes at Gloucester Park on Friday night a one-act affair when Emily Suvaljko drove her to an effortless all-the-way victory in the 2130m feature event.

“She is now going for a spell, and she will have a little break before coming back and having a couple of starts and then assessing her future,” said trainer Nathan Turvey.

“Once she drew barrier one, we were pretty happy. She has been racing well but without a lot of luck, including in the Pinjarra Cup and the Bunbury Cup.”

Savvy Bromac, the $1.30 favourite, began speedily and kept $81 chance Fifty Five Reborn at bay with a slick lead time of 36.2sec. Then, after comfortable opening quarters of the final mile in 31sec. and 29.9sec. Savvy Bromac dashed over the final 400m sections in 28.2sec. and 28.1sec. to win by two and a half lengths from $6 chance Booraa, who enjoyed the perfect sit behind the pacemaker.

Born To Boogie ($10) settled down in ninth position after starting out wide at barrier six, and she impressed in sustaining a spirited three-wide burst to finish third.

Savvy Bromac, owned by Karl Deiley, ended a losing sequence of seven and improved her record to 40 starts for 14 wins, ten seconds and five thirds for stakes of $288,415.

Her victory gave 21-year-old Suvaljko her fourth success in a group 2 event. She also has won one group 1 race and four at group 3 level.
