PurrumbeteBrigantine2ASired by Purrumbete Highlander, Brigantine is one of the most famous of the “new generation”.

Brigantine, with more than 350 registered progeny and over 40 certified males 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. Now deceased, his purchasers said they had received a lot of criticism for the high price paid at auction, but he had been worth every cent, as he had turned their herd around. 

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.  His progeny have won over 140 Championships and 40 Supreme Championships throughout Australia, and consistently fetch the highest prices at the national sales. 

Brigantine had excellent conformation and dense lustrous fleece. His progeny are renowned for the lustre and lack of medulation in their fleece.
