The amazing tale of Australasia's most successful thoroughbred by legendary trainer Bart Cummings 

As a youngster, So You Think caught the eye of Australia's legendary trainer Bart Cummings. He liked the future he saw in his gangly frame, and So You Think soon captivated Australasia with his brilliance, strength, and rockstar good looks. At just his fifth race start, he led all the way to win the prestigious W.S. Cox Plate. A year later, he became the only horse to win the race as a three- and four-year-old. So You Think was so good, in fact, the racing world took notice—with breeding giant Coolmore eventually making an offer too big to refuse. In a move that stunned his fans, the sale saw the horse transferred from Bart's stable in Melbourne to Aidan O’Brien's famous yard in Ireland. Now retired to stud, he is the most successful Australasian thoroughbred to grace the international stage, racing in six different countries for a final tally of 10 Group One victories, five in each hemisphere. But wherever he goes, and whatever he achieves as a stallion, So You Think will always be the horse that Bart built.
