So You Think Returns to Australia

Dual Cox Plate champion So You Think returned to Australia earlier this week to begin his stud career at Coolmoore’s Australian operation in the Hunter Valley.

So You Think has returned to Australia to begin his stud career

Set to stand at $66,000 in his first season, So You Think boasts a remarkable career record of 14 wins from 23 starts including 10 victories at Group 1 level.

The former Bart Cummings-trained star was accompanied on his flight from the UK by fellow Coolmore stallions Zoffany and Fastnet Rock and all arrived without complication.

An impressive list of mares have been booked for So You Think’s first season at stud including Group 1 winners  Magical Miss, Dariana, Eskimo Queen and Danni Martine.

Leading 2011-2012 sire Fastnet Rock will stand at $220,000 after a season that saw 130 individual winners come from his bloodline including stars Atlantic Jewel, Mosheen and Sea Siren.

So You Think was last seen running in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot, ending his racing career with a dominant 2 1/2 length victory.

Trainer Aidan O’Brien described the six-year-old as “extraordinary” and said it was a “real privilege” to have been able to train the son of High Chaparral.

So You Think won five Group 1 races under champion Australian trainer Bart Cummings and placed in the Melbourne Cup before being sold to Coolmore in late 2010.

He scored victory at Group 1 level a further five times while at O’Brien’s Ballydoyle operation and raced in Ireland, France, the UK, Dubai and the USA.

Following his final victory in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes, O’Brien admitted he had taken a long time to work the horse out and said he had finally reverted to training him in a similar style to Cummings, putting more speed work into his training.
