Coolmore’s new stallion prospect So You Think has arrived in the Hunter Valley to take up stud duties alongside a first class list of international stallions.

So You Think will join recording breaking champion Danehill sire Fastnet Rock and first season sires undefeated champion two year old Uncle Mo and Zoffany, a winner of five races in his two year old  season.

Coolmore Australia’s General Manager Michael Kirwan said the team at Jerry Plains was excited to finally see So You Think take his place at the famous stud.

“ So You Think is the most desirable stallion prospect to retire to this country in many a season and it’s great to have him back here again,” Kirwan said.

“He’s just a beautiful horse and has clearly taken his trip down here well, as you’d expect of a horse with such an admirable constitution.”

“We are very much looking forward to showing these horses off to our clients at our parades on Sunday.”

The winner of ten Group ones, So You Think’s greatest wins were split evenly between Australia, under the care of legendary trainer Bart Cummings, and Great Britain with leading Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien.

Cummings nurtured So You Think through his early days, developing the stallion into one of the top weight for age horses Australia has seen, preparing him for back to back Group 1 $3m Tatts Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley in 2009 and 2010m.

So You Think’s other Group 1s on Australian soil were the 2010 $350,000 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield, $400,000 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield and the $1m LKS Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington.

After the 2010 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington when he finished third to Americain, the multiple Group 1 winner was transferred to the stables of champion Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien at Ballydoyle in Ireland.

The top Irish trainer want on to win another five Group 1 races in Ireland and England before retiring the stallion after winning the Group 1 £400,000 150th Anniversary Of Prince Of Wales’s Stakes (1 mile 2 furlongs) at Royal Ascot on June 20.

“So You Think is an extraordinary horse and it was a real privilege to have had him here at Ballydoyle on loan from Australia,” O’Brien said.

So You Think will stand his first season at $66,000 and Coolmore has provided the dual Cox Plate winner with a top shelf list of mares to kick off the next chapter of his magnificent career.

The draft of mares consists of multiple Group 1 winners and includes Crown Oaks winners Faith Perfume and Magical Miss, Queensland Derby winner Dariana, Queensland Oaks winner Eskimo Queen, and Coolmore Classic winner Danni Martine.

So You Think’s speed and stamina will also be matched up with the brilliant Golden Slipper winner Merlene, Group 1 winning mare Nova Star who took out the Winter Stakes over 1400m at Eagle Farm and Coolmore’s new acquisition Group1 winner Melito.

Kirwan is also excited about the prospects of first season sire Uncle Mo who was undefeated at two in the United Sates, gaining the title of Champion 2YO Male in the USA in 2010 and his wins included the Group 1 Churchill Downs Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Stakes (8½f), Group 1 Belmont Champagne Stakes (8f), Group 2 Kelso Handicap (8f), Listed Gulfstream Timely Writer Stakes (8f).

“I really believe that Uncle Mo is a horse that everyone will be talking about afterwards,” Kirwan said.

“He’s an outstanding specimen – a big, strong, fast looking horse with great quality.”
