So You Battle (So You Think) winning at Hawkesbury

So You Think Filly Impresses on Debut

The Seymour Bloodstock colours were carried by promising debut winner So You Battle (3f So You Think x Gettysburgh, by All American) at Hawkesbury on Thursday.

Trained by Nathan Doyle, So You Battle showed nice ability in two recent trials at Newcastle and produced the goods on race day kicking clear for a stylish win in the 1300m maiden.

“She’s a nice filly, but whatever she’s done here today she’s going to improve on out of sight,” saoid Nathan Doyle.

“She didn’t quite know what to do when she got to the front, but put them away in good style.

“I thought 1300m would be ideal for her, but she will only improve as she steps up in trip.”

A homebred for Seymour Bloodstock, So You Battle is the first foal of unraced All American mare Gettysburgh, who traces back to Group I Australian Oaks winner Savana City.

Two time Cox Plate winner So You Think blasted up into second place on the Australian General Sires List by earnings last weekend and has already put 43 winners on the board of $4.3million with four stakes-winners all of them Group winners – Nimalee, Knight’s Order, Rocketing By and Gentleman Roy.

So You think stands at a fee of $93,500.
