SO YOU THINK has been retired by Coolmore after pulled muscles in his hind quarters ruled him out of running in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown on Saturday.

Multiple Group 1-winner So You Think, who Aidan O'Brien said it had been "a real privilege" to train, will enter quarantine on Saturday before heading to Coolmore Australia for the southern hemisphere breeding season.

he will be welcomed back to OZ with open arms, he set the melbourn spring on fire in 2010 , his third at 2 miles in the Melbourne cup after backing up from his 2nd cox plate win was unforgettable,the 2011 spring carnival sorely missed him,
Hell
goodbye SYT, we will miss you
3 continents
I really hate that So You Think doesn't get one last swan song in the Coral-Eclipse again. That said, he was as high class a middle distance horse as we've seen for a long time, IMO. A 10-time G1 winner in 2 different hemispheres. 5 G1 wins in Australia and 5 G1 wins in Europe. He traveled all over the world and raced in the biggest venues on all 3 surfaces, and always gave a very creditable accounting of himself. The sport will greatly miss this horse.
It was always Coolmore's plan to retire him after the Eclipse. In fact Coolmore Australia reports his book is nearly full with very classy, top-tier mares. I would have loved to see him race one more time. However, he's left us with incredible performances, spanning two continents. He's raced longer than many top-level horses seem to do. I am going to bet on him being a top sire too. Thank you SYT!
I tip my hat to this great warrior. Not often you see horses travel across the globe and stay competitive (and win) at the top level. I really hope his progeny show the tenacity that he did. It will be fun to watch Gio Ponti and So You Think babies to compete in Australia.
Too bad. I was really psyched for his next race
Another bites the dust...very unfortunate
