Think He’s Promising
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 12 April 2017
A runaway maiden winner at Warrnambool back in February, the Darren Weir trained So You Think colt Think Babe was a hot favourite at Ballarat on Wednesday.

So You ThinkTaking on the older horses in a Benchmark 64 event over 1400 metres, Think Babe did best in a tight finish to win by a short head and will no doubt take plenty of improvement from the run.

Bred and retained to race by Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock's Darren and Liz Dance and partners, Think Babe has two wins and a second from three starts.

He is the first winner for minor winning Savabeel mare Savababe, a daughter of stakes-winner Thursday's Child.

He continues a great winning run for So You Think, who has surged in recent months to take over at the top of the Australian Second Season Sires List.

His progeny have been headlined by Group I winners Inference and La Bella Diosa as well as smart staying stakes-winner Northwest Passage.

So You Think's service fee has been raised to $60,500 this year by Coolmore on the back of his burgeoning success.
