Burgundy colt runs hot again

Burgundy colt runs hot again1 Nov 2019

A gallant Brandenburg has again covered himself in glory in a prestige race with a runner-up finish in the Gr.3 Carbine Club Stakes.

The son of Burgundy had also finished second at his previous run in the Gr.2 Stan Fox Stakes.

On Saturday, the John Sargent-trained three-year-old settled toward the back of the field under Dwayne Dunn.

They improved wide on the turn and Brandenburg finished relentlessly for his placing.

The colt has been a model of consistency this preparation with three seconds and a breakthrough win to his credit.

Brandenburg is a son of the Galileo mare Wansesingyee and was bred by Hunterville identity Christopher Grace.

The dam is out of a half-sister to the Sargent-trained Listed McKell Cup winner Luvuleo.
