A fantastic value colt by one of the most underrated sires in Australia SO YOU THINK who has had a phenomenal season so far! This strong, supremely athletic colt has obvious quality just like his famous sire and he presents as an exciting Spring Classic prospect with Derby & Blue Diamond winning trainers Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young.

Sire Update: (14/4): Another week, another Group winner for So You Think! QUICK THINKER wins the Group 2 Chairmans's Quality Handicap, POLAND runs 2nd in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes, while NIMALEE wins the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes over the Easter break


All quality, strongly built and extremely athletic colt who is really stamped by his brilliant sire So You Think, a favourite of #TeamFIRST!

Very well grown August born colt with a great head, just like dad, strong hindquarter, excellent bone to muscle ratio and deep girth. And of course, he moves exceptionally well!
Sire So You Think was a world-class racehorse who is now one of the country's Leading Sires! Exceptional sire of 3yo Classic winners including 2020 Group 1 ATC Derby winner QUICK THINKER and we loved the mix of speed in this colt’s dam-side
An excellent first foal out of the 3 x speedy winner Surprise Party, a daughter top Broodmare sire Commands and Stakes Placed SECRET GIFT and from the family of further Stakes Winners LOVE AND MONEY, KISS ME KATY & MY MIDDI. A solid mix of speed and stamina on both sides.
We'll dream the 3yo Classics dream with this colt who joins the same stable as FLR Spring Stakes Winners RICH HIPS and I AM ELOQUENT, Group 1 Derby placed and Flemington winner SAVVY OAK as well as 2020 Blue Diamond winner TAGALOA in Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young

** He finished yet another incredible 2019/20 season with 9 Stakes Winners including Group 1 winner QUICK THINKER and further Group winners MISS SISKA, SO SI BON, THOUGHT OF THAT, FASIKA and REALM OF FLOWERS

Sire Update (29/3): He's done it again! Another HUGE weekend for So You Think who has now stepped up to 4th Leading Sire in AUS after siring the winner of the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes with THINK IT OVER (pictured below) and close runner-up in the Group 3 Manion Cup REALM OF FLOWERS.

Sire Update (25/3): What a season So You Think is having! 5th Leading Sire in Australia with 8 Stakes Winners & 9 Stakes Place-getters!

Dam – SURPRISE PARTY (by Commands)

** A 3 x winner on the track over 1000m, Surprise Party was speedy on the track and she’s produced an absolute beauty in this colt who is her first foal!

** Out of the 6 x winner and Stakes Placed SECRET GIFT who herself is a half sister to Stakes Winner LOVE AND MONEY which is the close family of Group 1 placed 2yo MY MIDDI

** The So You Think over Danehill mares line cross has been hugely successful (includes Gr 1 Derby winner QUICK THINKER) and rates highly from 2yo sprinter milers to open age middle distance!
