$525,000 So You Think Colt Stars at MM Weanlings

He’s leading the Australian General Sires List with progeny earnings topping $17million and So You Think also put some early spark into the opening session of the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale when his colt from Salina sold for $525,000.

Consigned by Telemon Thoroughbreds, he was the most expensive colt of the session and was bought by Bahen Bloodstock on behalf of a Victorian client. He is the first foal of a young well bred placed daughter of champion sire Redoute’s Choice.

His next three dams are all stakes-winners with Salina out of Listed winner Quayside, who is from Group II winner Quays, who is from Group I winner Pontal Lass.

"The stallion is doing a super job and he’s the first foal out of a Redoute’s Choice mare so there was a fair bit to like about him," Bahen said.

"I think the client wants to put him back through (as a yearling) but we’ll see how we go, if there’s a profit there then he’s happy to turn him over but if not, he’ll race him."

The sale was a great result for Telemon Thoroughbreds, who purchased Salina from the Segenhoe draft at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale last year for $300,000 when she was carrying this colt.

Salina is now in foal to Pierro.
