Sire: So You Think

Colour: Brown or Black

Dam: Nicconi Leggera

Sex: Filly

Age: 1

Foaled: Sep 27, 2020

Country: Australia

Incentives:

So You Think needs little introduction as the sire of seven Group One winners and this filly looks to have both the precocity to race as a two-year-old and the scope to develop into a Classic three-year-old. She was purchased for $200,000 from the Lime Country Thoroughbreds draft. 

 

Now’s the time to race a horse in New South Wales! Effective from July 1, 2022 Racing NSW has increased prizemoney across the board, with Saturday metropolitan races now worth $150,000, midweek metropolitan races $55,000, provincial $40,000 and country TAB $25,00. Group 1 races will now be worth a minimum $600,000.

 


 

 


So You Think has quickly asserted himself as one of Australia’s leading sires and has been able to produce both sprinters and progeny capable of racing beyond 2000m.  As the sire of 38 individual Stakes Winners at 5.7% SW/Runners, he has had three individual Group One winning fillies; Nakeeta Jane, La Diosa Sopressa.

Interestingly, his progeny have won 18 stakes races between 1000-1400m which further demonstrates his ability to produce versatile stock able to sprint and stay.

Given the speed influence of Nicconi (think Nature Strip), this filly’s pedigree has a lot of sharp, fast two-year-olds under her first four dams.  This gives us further confidence that she can perform as a late two-year-old before looking at her Classic year where she could perform at beyond a mile.

So You Think has already produced the stakes winner, So We Are out of a Bianconi (sire of Nicconi) mare, so we are confident this cross has the ability to work.

Physically, this filly is very athletic and light on her feet at the walk which is another asset when assessing this style of filly that could be capable of performing up to 2000m.
