$1million So You Think Colt Breaks Maiden
The Bryce Heys stable continued their winning run at Randwick on Wednesday with a jaw dropping maiden win for $1million colt Cut a Dime (3c So You Think x Martilago, by Encosta de Lago).
Cut on a Dime was seventh on debut and then an unlucky third at his first two starts last spring and was resuming from a good spell in the 1400m three year-old maiden.
Ridden quietly with cover by Nash Rawiller it was looking like Cut a Dime would go to the line untested until a split appeared and he powered through it to score a thrilling and unexpected win.
The second most expensive yearling by So You Think ever sold, Cut a Dime was a $1million Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Segenhoe Stud for Ellerslie Lodge / B Heys and runs for a syndicate that includes his breeders.
He is a half-brother to stakes-winner Meg and is the third winner from Martilago, a metro winning half-sister by Encosta de Lago to Group I winner Charmont from stakes-winner Martique, a daughter of Group I winner Champagne.
It’s a prolific Black Type family that has also produced NZ Horse of the Year Bonneval and dual Group I winner St Reims.
Martilago has no yearling for the sales this year, but did produce a So You Think filly last spring.
