Sire: So You Think (NZ)
Dam: Warmleys Gem
Dam Sire: Phardante (Fr)
A superb four-year-old NH prospect by the Champion So You Think is offered for sale. This impressive youngster is an exceptional walker with lots of size, scope and quality.
The dam Warmleys Gem was a lightly-raced daughter of Phardante who has gone on to significant success as a breeder. Her best progeny to date is the high-class Oscar Dan Dan, who won the Grade-1 Hatton's Grace Hurdle in 2009, in doing so defeating a host of star names including the dual Champion Hurdle hero Hardy Eustace.
Oscar Dan Dan also won twice in Grade-2 company over hurdles, was successful over fences from just four attempts and also finished a highly creditable sixth behind the great Big Buck's in the Stayers' Hurdle (known as the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at the time) at the Cheltenham Festival.
Warmleys Gem's influence extends beyond a single generation, as her winning daughter Some Gem has gone on to produce the very useful 132-rated hurdler The Hollow Ginge who recently got off the mark on his fencing debut and is now rated 142. He is a very exciting prospect.
The further family on the distaff side of this pedigree features numerous black-type horses, whilst Phardante is an outstanding source as a NH broodmare sire.
His daughters have produced a galaxy of stars in recent years, most notably the recently retired Champion Hurdle winner Jezki. Other stellar names out of Phardante mares include the prolific Grade-1 winning hurdler/chaser Oscar Whisky, the triple-Grade-1 winning chaser God's Own, the Grade-1 Betfair Chase hero Snoopy Loopy, the Grade-1 winning hurdler/chaser Rule Supreme and the Grade-1 and Cheltenham Festival winning hurdler Killultagh Vic.
Heightening the excitement surrounding this fine-looking youngster's prospects is the fact that So You Think is quietly turning into a force as a jumps sire.
A 10x Gr-1 winner during a superb career spanning spells in both Australasia and Europe, he quickly turned himself into a top-level producing flat sire thanks to the success of Inference in the Grp-1 Randwick Guineas. However, of greater interest is the fact that from just a handful of runners he has already given the triple hurdles winner So Lonely, the dual hurdles victor Ellipsism and the dual bumper winner Cuckoo's Calling.
So You Think is a son of High Chaparral, sire of Altior no less, so there is reason to believe that he can maintain the momentum and become a serious force in the NH sire ranks.
With pleasing physical credentials complementing an exciting pedigree, the future looks particularly bright for this four-year-old. Don't miss out!
