Horse Description:

SO YOU THINK was a once-in-a-lifetime performer on the racetrack with two Cox Plate wins among 10 Group 1 wins in a career that feature five Group 1 wins in England in Ireland in addition to his amazing feats in Australia.

SO YOU THINK was simply the best of his generation in Australia and among the world’s best thoroughbred for a time, beating the likes of ZIPPING, METAL BENDER & SHOOT OUT locally before defeating world class performers like WORKFORCE and SNOW FAIRY & finishing fourth in both the Arc and Dubai World Cup.

So You Think’s stud feats could match his racetrack performances with his first crop producing the Group 1 NZ 1000 Guineas winner LA BELLA DIOSA, who demolished her rivals in her Australian debut at Group 2 level in late February while he had a two-year-old Group 2 winner when GOLD RUSH won the Matamata Breeders’ Stakes over 1200m, indicating amazing versatility when paired with the right mares.

His son NORTHWEST PASSAGE is a Derby winner in Tasmania and is progressing well to repeat the feat on the mainland while Group-placed INFERENCE, KACHING and SO SI BON are all possible Group winners for the sire in the autum.

This filly is out of the DANASINGA mare SWINGING FEELING, the dam of the triple Hong Kong winner Jazzy Feeling and the dual Brisbane winner Harmonized Feeling among three foals to race.
