Four wins from Five Starts - Think About It
The last race of the day at Rosehill on Saturday featured a very short priced favourite and exciting prospect Think About It (4g So You Think x Tiare, by Flying Spur) got home in a thrilling finish to the delight of his supporters.
Trained by Joe Pride, the four year-old son of So You Think has been handled patiently winning two of his three starts last year before returning to win at Warwick Farm earlier this month.
Stepped up to a Benchmark 78 event over 1350m, he showed his class for Sam Clipperton, surging to the line to win by a neck and has now won four of five starts earning over $150,000 in prizemoney.
“He feels like a very good racehorse, although the penny is far from dropping, however he is getting better each time,” said Sam Clipperston.
“You can see in the yard, he’s a bit hot and revvy, which is probably how he is always going to be, but he still performs.
“It always looked a challenging race for him in terms of the pace, but I always thought he would win. He just needed time to balance and I wasn’t too hard on him until that last 100m and he knuckled down and won like a good horse should.”
A $70,000 Inglis Premier purchase for Proven Thoroughbreds / Joe Pride Racing from the Newgate Farm draft, Think It Over was bred by Lightning Thoroughbreds and foaled and raised at Newgate.
He is a half-brother to metro winner Private Cheetah and is the second winner from Tiare, a winning half-sister by Flying Spur to Group II winning sprinter Keen Array.
His grand-dam is by Zabeel and the family features two Group I winners in Hong Kong in The Duke and Sky Field, so there is plenty of quality on the page and So You Think has produced Group I winners from daughters of both Flying Spur and Zabeel.
Tiare was sold through the Newgate Consignment at the 2021 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale for $150,000 to Tasmania based Grenville Stud and she produced a Pierro colt for them that will be offered at Inglis Premier as Lot 198.
Tiare produced a colt by Wootton Bassett last spring.
