Brother to So You Think to be offered at Inglis Easter Sale in 2012

A FULL-BROTHER to the seven-time Group 1 winner  So You Think is to be offered at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale in 2012.

The colt, by sire High Chaparral and out of the recently crowned New Zealand champion broodmare of the Year Triassic, is due to go under the hammer at the Inglis sales ring in Newmarket, Sydney through April 10-12, 2012

A seven-time Group 1 winner in Australia, England and Ireland, So You Think  is currently sixth overall on the World Thoroughbred Rankings, and second in the Intermediate distance category behind Rewilding.

A last-time out winner of the Eclipse Stakes (G1) after being beaten in the Prince of Wales's Stakes (G1) by Rewilding, the Aidan O'Brien-trained  son of High Chaparral is the current favourite for this weekend's Irish Champion Stakes.

"We are delighted that So You Think's co-breeder Mrs Cecile Smith of Piper Farms, who has just been named New Zealand's Breeder of the Year, has engaged us to sell one of the standout yearlings of 2012 at Easter, ” sais Inglis bloodstock director Jonathan D'Arcy.

D'Arcy and Inglis' New Zealand representative Michael Otto inspected the colt in New Zealand two weeks ago and were very impressed with him as an individual.

"There is a great likeness between him and his famous sibling,” D'Arcy added.

Willow Park Stud, the source of champion mare Samantha Miss, will be consigning the colt.

"We are honoured to be able to offer such a valuable colt for his entrusting owners,” said Willow Park Stud's Glenn Burrows.

"With five colts by Redoute's Choice, including a brother to Samantha Miss, the brother to So You Think will be in very good company amongst our draft of 14 for Easter,” Glenn revealed.
