Thrilled to offer an outstanding colt by champion racehorse SO YOU THINK as his 3YO Stakes performers continue to grow!


So You Think’s racing achievements are legend, however, he’s really starting to make an impact at stud with 3YO Group 1 winners D'ARGENTO and INFERENCE joining an ever growing list of Stakes performers including FLR’s own KACHING, SO SI BON, NORTHWEST PASSAGE, THINK BLUE, SMART AS YOU THINK etc

This professional, well educated 2YO gelding is a breeze to do anything with and he is currently in full work with Gai & Adrian at Randwick.

This 2YO is blessed with quality descending from the city winning Thorn Park mare SAM I AM. That gives him the same cross as Group 3 winner and Group 1 placed SOUBRETTES and he is also a 3/4 brother to Group 3 placed KEEP COOL and the Gai & Adrian trained PORCELLANUS.

Both PORCELLANUS and COCO CABANNA were trained by Gai so she knows the family so well.

“I was really taken with the horse first I saw it. This 2YO was very athletic, very smooth, lovely action, good overstep and he combined this with a great attitude. We know the family well and he’ll be a smart, straight forward horse like all the breed and I can't wait to open up his engine” said co-trainer Adrian Bott.

This 2YO is $13,725 for a 5% share inclusive of purchase price, purchase costs, international freight & importation, transport and agistment etc plus insurance coverage and all costs inclusive to 31 March 2018.
