Brigadoon Jack in a four day repeat

Feb 03, 2011

The good run of the Bruce Hill yard continued on Wednesday when Brigadoon Jack picked up his second win in four days.
The strongly backed four-year-old was perfectly ridden by Paul. Hammersley to out punch rivals in the Class 3 Plate at Eagle Farm (1200m).
The son of Falvelon settled third behind the leader Sky Traveler before Queensland's most under-rated rider sent him to the lead at the top of the straight.
Knowing the fighting qualities of Brigadoon Jack, it was the winning move as the pair were clear at the 200m.
River Lad made ground in the final stages but "Jack" held too many guns and won by a neck with No Halos another three quarter of length away third.
It was Brigadoon Jack's fourth win in 12 starts and his third since returning to racing in October after a 12 month lay off due to a tendon injury.
"The best thing about Brigadoon Jack is that he gives it his best every time," Bruce said.
"If every horse had his attitude this training caper would be easier.
"He is small but still capable of carrying bigger weights and he is quick enough to take up a good position early.
"I think his best is still in front of him and he has been good to date.
"It is a pleasure to win another race for Colin Harbrow and be part of over 100 winners that he has owned."
In the past Bruce has produced Brigadoon Champ, Brigadoon Star and now Brigadoon Jack to win for Harbrow.
"Brigadoon" is the name of a property Harbrow owns - it is the place he raises, nurtures and pre-trains horses.
Brigadoon Jack was the sixth win for the Hill yard in the past three weeks adding to Startsmeup's gallant second in the $1m Magic Million Guineas (1400m).
