Patience Running Out For Light Brigade

Light Brigade cost a hefty $1.4 million when purchased at the 2009 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sales but is yet to show the true value of his pedigree. (Redoute’s Choice / Winning Belle)

After a string of decent runs and solid performances it’s time for Light Brigade to start paying dividends as he works through his middle distance program in Sydney.

Part owner Bob Scarborough said connections were willing to be patient but after another miss last start in the Rosehill Guineas it is the time for the horse to start winning races.

“Winning Belle excelled at 2000m and this is prime time for him. I really feel he’s a four-year-old, but for his Classic year, this is his time,” Scarborough said.

Scarborough knows what it’s like to own winners in the Classics, he owned and bred 2000 Victoria Derby winner Hit The Roof and New Zealand Derby winner Leica Guv in 2001.

He also had ties with Marble Halls which ran second to Yippyio in one of the most famous Queensland Derby’s ever run in 1997.

His Australian Guineas champion Light Fantastic was retired in 2010 and is housed at his Wood Nook farm with the young colts.

He has a 25% share in Light Brigade with Amanda Krishnan from Kia Ora Stud picking up the rest.

The horse has had eight starts for just two wins which came in his first two runs.

Since then his best result was a third in the Randwick Guineas but with total prize money of $110,000 he has a long way to go to pay back the initial investment.

He is trained by Gai Waterhouse and last start finished fourth behind Jimmy Choux as an $8 chance in the Rosehill Guineas.
