So You Think Filly A Real Classic

A stunning So You Think filly from the Inglis Classic sale has joined the Champion Thoroughbreds and John O'Shea racing team. Purchased for $100,000 from the Aquis Farm Stud Draft, the filly is out of the Stravinsky mare Cosabella, a 4 times winner from 1150m-1600m. Cosabella is a half sister to Sonnet, the dam of Group 3 winner Zonza. This filly is the first foal out of Cosabella who produced a filly by No Nay Never last year before being served by Divine Prophet.

This filly is by 10 time Group 1 and duel Cox Plate winner So You Think- a modern day Champion who defeated over 75 individual Gr.1 winners for earnings of more than $10M in two hemispheres. So You Think continues to produce exciting racehorses with the likes of Group 1 winner La Bella Diosa, Inference, Gold Rush and Randwick Guineas hopeful D'Argento.

"What we loved about this filly this most was her incredible walk." Director Jason Abrahams commented after the sale. "She has the best action on her which reminded us a lot of Butterboom and Ammirata."

The Inglis sale at the new Riverside complex has proved extreamly competitive. At the end of Day 2, the average of the sale was $102,674 with last year's sale average on Day 2 being $66,658.
