On a morning run: Out on a gambol at Armstrong Brothers Farm in Brampton are outstanding trotting mare Armbro Flight and her foal; which was born on Good Friday. Armbro Flight won 52 of 62 starts and more than $493;000 in 2 1/2 years before she was retired last July. And although the filly; the first of Armbro Flight's four offspring to be foaled in Canada; isn't trotting like her dam as yet; her racing bloodlines are apparent. Open in full size
