Sire: So You Think
Trainer: Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott
HORSE SYNDICATIONS!! STALLION PROSPECT – HALF BROTHER TO UNITE AND CONQUER ALSO TRAINED BY GAI WATERHOUSE – PHYSICALLY A SUPERIOR COLT
This is one very nice colt half-brother to our very own UNITE AND CONQUER also trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott. We are thrilled to be offering this colt for syndication.
He is a big strong SO YOU THINK colt with plenty of scope. He has a 2yo written all over. A colt with loads of power in the hind quarters and certainly has a lovely walk with a big overstep. Very hard to fault a horse that has been put together really well.
He is rated highly with a Werk Nick Rating of A.
Adrian Bott post sale comments. “Beautiful colt, we have a great affiliation with the family thru Unite and Conquer a brilliant 2yo. This colt will develop into a classic type of horse. As I said really delighted to secure him to partner with Bluelood Thoroughreds who we have had great success with”.
This So You Think colt is being educated at Evergreen Stud by astute breaker Gordon Pratt.
The process of breaking in a horse is really to teach them how to wear saddle and gear, be mouthed. Also be ridden by a jockey and to adapt to the riders instructions. The colt will also go through the barriers to familiarise himself with that important aspect of going to the races. He is right where he needs to be strength wise and mentally to make his presence felt in the early 2yo races.
He has also passed 100% clean on his scope, x-ray and clinical examination.

Trainer: Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott
The first runner in a race in town Gai Waterhouse won. Her first runner in a metropolitan race won. Also her first runner in a Group One race won. Consequently her first runner in a jumps race won. Considering the education Gai received during her 12 year apprentice with T.J. leading up to January 1992, it is little wonder the Lady Trainer was an instant success. Since her humble beginnings as a solo trainer in January 1992. Gai Waterhouse has gone on to achieve as much as humanly possible with racehorses.
While many would rest on their laurels after such success, Gai simply wants to win more and more. Owners can rest assured that the Lady Trainer wants to win races just as much if not more than they do! As we stand, in just over 20 years of training, Gai has amassed over 120 Group One wins and currently sits third on the all-time list (Group One winners) behind T.J. Smith and Bart Cummings.
Greatest achievements have been recorded in the best races of the year in both Melbourne and Sydney. Winning Sydney’s two best races, the Golden Slipper and Doncaster Handicap six and seven times respectively. Gai is by far the most successful trainer ever in the Sydney Spring. ‘Make hay while the sun shines’ is a phrase one often can hear Gai quoting. This attitude is reflected by Gai Waterhouse results in the best races contested during the Sydney Spring Carnival. The Flight Stakes (7 wins), the Epsom Handicap (7 wins) and the Metropolitan Handicap (8 wins) have become races at the mercy of Gai each and every year.
Gai Waterhouse gives each and every horse that comes into her care every possible chance to succeed. Only six horses in the history of Sydney racing have won the two-year-old Triple Crown and Gai has trained two of them (Dance Hero 2004 and Pierro 2012). Gai in fact has won more Group One races for two-year-olds than any other trainer.
