French Star Brigantin to Stay in Australia with Pat Carey

French stayer Brigantin will remain in Australia despite a failed spring campaign and will be trained by Pat Carey.

The six-year-old, who is owned by Team Valor, was considered a strong chance in the Melbourne Cup but failed to make the final field.

His only start this spring resulted in a third-place finish in the Geelong Cup with a minor injury ruling him out of Saturday’s Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m).

The son of Cozzene has placed at Group 1 level in both the UK and France and was second to the highly rated Joshua Tree in the Group 2 Prix Kergolay in his final start before arriving in Australia.

Third place in the Prix Kergolay was Shahwardi who won the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes in his first start in Australia but also failed to make the final Melbourne Cup field.

Carey told Racing Victoria Brigantin will join his Mornington-based team provided he gets the all-clear from tests currently undertaken for a minor injury.

“On the basis that all is well, I expect that the horse will come to my stable,” he said.

Carey described Brigantin as a “lovely acquisition” and is excited about having a genuine world-class stayer in the stable.

“He was highly-regarded in the markets coming into the Melbourne Spring and looked a pretty nice horse with it. He’ll be a lovely acquisition for the stable,” Carey said.

Fellow French stayer Shahwardi will attempt to back up his Herbert Power Stakes win in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes for what he is currently second favourite at $5.50.

Bendigo Cup winner Puissance De Lune is a $2.90 favourite in a strong field that also features Lexus Stakes runner-up Dare To Dream and Godolphin’s Lost In The Moment ($10) and
