Australian superstar So You Think has arrived at Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle stables in preparation for the new Flat season.
The 5-y-o was formerly trained by the legendary Bart Cummings and started favourite for the 2010 Melbourne Cup, where he lost for the first time in six races, when just failing to see out the trip in third place.
The son of High Chaparral landed back-to-back victories in the Cox Plate, Australia’s premier weight-for-age race, last October before going on to take his fifth Group One win in the Mackinnon Stakes.
O’Brien intends to aim him at all of Europe’s premier middle distance races in 2011. The Arc, King George and possibly a drop down to 1m 2f for the Eclipse all look to be on the agenda.
