Brave Centaur to race for new stable

Matamata galloper Brave Centaur will have his first start from new quarters in Saturday’s Listed A$120,000 Headquarters Tavern Stakes (1400m) at Flemington.

Previously prepared by Matamata’s Lance Noble, the Group One-placed O’Reilly seven-year-old has been transferred to Whittlesea trainers Peter Morgan and Craig Widdison.

Brave Centaur hasn’t raced since his fourth placing behind subsequent Group One performers I Do and Pussy O’Reilly in the Gr.3 Foxbridge Plate at Te Rapa in mid-August.

He had to be scratched from his planned first start in Melbourne when he went down on the flight over and took skin off his hip, which led to his programme being out of kilter with the Noble-trained Viadana and his subsequent transfer of stables.
