Another Brigadoon - another winner

Nov 04, 2009

Bruce Hill went to Eagle Farm on Melbourne Cup day confident he would leave with a winner.

Brigadoon Jack had worked "super" on Saturday giving the Gold Coast trainer confidence.
With the added advantage of barrier one, it was little wonder Brigadoon Jack was well supported from $5.50 to $5 on track and it was little wonder he won.
Brigadoon Jack settle midfield for apprentice Luke Rolls and sailed away over the concluding stages to win by three lengths from Mr Boogiewoogie with Ibethecan another length and three quarters away third.
It is another reward for owner Col Harbrow who moved some of his horses to the stable six months ago.
In the past month Bruce has produced Brigadoon Champ, Brigadoon Star and now Brigadoon Jack to win for Harbrow.
Brigadoon is the property Harbrow owns - it is the place he raises, nurtures and pre-trains his 24 horses of which ten actively race.
"Brigadoon Jack has improved a lot, virtually with each start," Bruce said.
"I think he will be able to win city races with further improvement and for now I am happy to send him out for a spell."
Brigadoon Jack is by Glenlogan Park stallion Falvelon from Little Nova (by Our Maizcay).
Brigadoon Jack is Little Nova's first winner in town and it was bred by Harbrow.
Little Nova is out of Novajinsky, a flying machine, who won the Ballina Bracelet.
“I paid $10,000 for Little Nova at a sale and used her just as a broodmare,” Harbrow said.
"I have had bad luck with Little Nova's other foals.
"A sister to him did a tendon but I will give her to Bruce this week.
"She showed talent in a trial before the injury.
“An older brother could run 200m in 10.5 seconds but he had a congenital defect in his heart.
"I haven't bred from her since Brigadoon Jack but now he is showing promise I will re-consider.
Brigadoon Jack ran the 1300m in 1.17.79 sec which was faster than the other maiden over the same trip on the day 1.18.56 sec.
