So You Think: rivals left gasping

I have just been watching the Mackinnon Stakes on Victoria Derby day and I'm blown away by how easily So You Think pulled away from the other horses to win the race by a 3¾ lengths. A masterclass run that left the other horses and jockeys speckled in mud on a wet, wet, wet day at the Flemington race course in Melbourne.

With trainer Bart Cummings still in hospital, it was left to So You Think's owner, Dato Tan Chin Nam, to hold court with the eager reporters. His (Malaysian) eyes, he says, will be smiling even more if his horse romps home with the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday.
