Purrumbete Brigantine

Brigantine, with more than 350 registered progeny and over 40 certified Brigantinemales in the AAA database, became the highest price male sold at auction in Australia when Alan and Carolyn Jinks held their reduction sale in 2003.

The Jinks' chose Brigantine when he was just a baby, and proved the success of their decision when he became Australian National Supreme Champion in 1996. They sold him for A$145,000.

Brigantine’s more noteworthy certified males include Benleigh High South, Hadstock NZ Classique and Benleigh Cosmos. His progeny have won over 140 Championships and 40 Supreme Championships throughout Australia, and consistently fetch the highest prices at the national sales.

Brigantine’s sire was Purrumbete Highlander, Australia’s most successful stud male. He has excellent conformation and dense lustrous fleece. His progeny are renowned for the lustre and lack of medulation in their fleece.
