The First Born Son

He'd have to be the finest looking specimen I've seen on a racetrack and off it. SO YOU THINK was gifted with killer looks and presence that is only bestowed on the elitist of thoroughbreds. His race record matched it- Dual Hemisphere Group 1 winner, 5 in each, 10 Group 1 victories in total and just shy of $8 million dollars in earnings. He was an extraordinary horse and a great champion of the modern era. Certainly a privilege for anyone who witnessed his greatness. What an honour to have photographed him !

SO YOU THINK SO YOU THINK

So he was retired to stand at stud at Coolmore Australia & Ireland. A new exciting chapter in his life had started - his future sons and daughters will be gracing the turf before we know it. I have no doubt he will throw his own champion one day, he is a superstar !

Could it be this little guy..... the first foal born in the world by So You Think. I couldn't resist this opportunity to drive literally "just down the road" to capture Bell View Park Studs' little "superstar" ! What a lovely morning just chilling with mum and baby...and after about 45 minutes the curiosity got the better of him. He came over for a sniff and a little nibble of my fingers, bounced away, he returned about 8 times.

Then it was game on, playtime !

Hope you enjoy these !
