So You Think Has "Unbelievable Harem Awaiting"
Former Australian superstar & now 10-time Gr1-winning 5YO entire So You Think (High Chaparral-Triassic, by Tights) "has an unbelievable harem of broodmares awaiting his return to Australia in early September at Coolmore Stud, where he begins another chapter of his exceptional career" reported The Sydney Morning Herald. So You Think "kicks off new duties at Coolmore at a $66,000 fee which is equal to Sepoy's service charge & an Australian 1st-season record price". Coolmore's Australian manager Michael Kirwan "is waiting on whether So You Think will have his swansong in the UK Gr1 Eclipse Stakes (10 furlongs) at Sandown next weekend" but confirmed: "Irrespective of whether he races again, So You Think has rightfully received the backing of Australasian breeders." Dato Tan Chin Nam "has placed his 2 best broodmares with So You Think": dual Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed Faint Perfume, plus Gr1-winner Dariana. Other Gr1-winner bookings include dual Gr1-winner Eskimo Queen, Gr1 Golden Slipper winner Merlene, Magical Miss, Nova Star & Danni Martine. Also lined up are the dams of: Gr1 Melbourne Cup winner Shocking; 5-time Gr1-winner Eremein; triple Gr1-winner Yosei; Gr1 Cox Plate winner Maldavian; Gr1 Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed; dual Gr1-winner Gold Edition; dual Gr1-winner Lord Tavistock; & Irish Lights. Following the Australian breeding season, So You Think "begins shuttling to Coolmore's Irish base next year".
