Inference Wins Gr1 Randwick Guineas

Monday, 6th March 2017

At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Coolmore Stud stallion and former Australian Champion racehorse So You Think (High Chaparral-Triassic, by Tights) celebrated a Gr1 triumph when 3YO colt Inference (So You Think-Pontiana, by Redoute's Choice) scored by 0.2-length for trainers Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes in the $1,000,000 Randwick Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, over the filly Invincible Gem (I Am Invincible-Diamond Day, by Marwina) and fellow colt Comin' Through (Fastnet Rock-Mica's Pride, by Bite The Bullet). Under a patient ride by Tommy Berry who scraped the paint on the outside rail to get up, Inference looked every inch a future Derby contender. Runner-up on debut last April as a 2YO where he rattled home in eye-opening fashion, Inference has been knocking on the door of a major race victory since last Spring. Saturday's win took his record to 4 wins & 3 placings (including the Gr1 VRC Derby & Gr3 Caulfield Classic) from 9 starts for $842,950 earnings.
