Brigantin Out of Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival 2012

One-time Melbourne Cup 2012 fancy Brigantin has been ruled out of the remainder of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival due to injury.


Brigantin has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2012 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival

The French-trained Cozzene stallion was bought down under for a shot at the world’s richest handicap, the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) set to run as Flemington Race 7 at 3:00pm (AEST) this afternoon.

Runner-up to Joshua Tree in the Group 2 Prix Kergorlay (3000m) in France back in August, a race that the past two Melbourne Cup winners Duanden (9th in 2011) and Americain (1st in 2010) came via, the Andre Fabre-trained Brigantin originally looked a nice chance in the 2012 Melbourne Cup.

They ran a credible third behind fellow European raider Gatewood in their Australian debut in the Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) on October 24.

From there however connections opted to take the chance of not making the 24-horse Melbourne Cup field by running them again before Melbourne Cup Day.

Brigantin then was one of the notable internationals that missed out on a start in the ‘race that stops a nation’ when they finished 26th on the order of entry with an incredible 40 horses accepted for at final declaration stage last weekend – as was Geelong Cup winner Gatewood (32nd) after they went down as the beaten favourite in the Lexus Stakes behind Kelinni.

In a side note #24 Kelinni is rated a $21 chance to win the Melbourne Cup this afternoon.

There was a chance Brigantin would race on in Melbourne this season and vie for the $100,000 bonus on offer to any horse that was balloted out of the Melbourne Cup field 2012 and went on to win the $250,000 Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day next Saturday.

The French stayer however won’t be in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes field after suffering a minor leg injury during their Melbourne Cup Day track gallop.

A total of 24 horses were nominated for the 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes this year including the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained raider Lost In The Moment, Robert Hickmott’s The Bart Cummings’ winner Tanby and Herbert Power Stakes champ Shahwardi.

There are also two horses that are running in today’s Melbourne Cup that are nominated for the Queen Elizabeth as well with Mourayan and Unusual Suspect who are at opposite ends of the Melbourne Cup odds paying $26 and $151 respectively.

Make sure you don’t miss out on the chance to back the Melbourne Cup winner by signing up with today and quoting the promo code BONUSBET to enjoy a $400 bonus welcome bet on the house.
