So You Think: legend in the making?
The first time I saw this picture, I was greatly moved by the animal's countenance even though this was a race and it was being urged on by the jockey. It looked unbelievably cool, emotionless and undistracted under pressure. A "one track mind" if I ever needed to be reminded of this majestic horse.
Meet So You Think, the Bart Cummings-trained horse that is creating waves of excitement all over Australia right now. This Saturday, So You Think is the odds-on favourite to run away with the Tatts Cox Plate race at Mooney Valley in Melbourne. It's status will be sealed if it also compete and land this year's Melbourne Cup on 2 Nov.
Here is So You Think's memorable Cox Plate win last year. Get ready for history to repeat itself.
