The Horse That Bart Built


Formats & editions


So You Think's incredible journey.

So You Think's incredible journey.

As a youngster, So You Think caught the eye of Australia’s legendary trainer Bart Cummings. He liked the future he saw in his gangly frame, and soon, So You Think captivated Australasia with his rockstar good looks, his brilliance and strength.

As a three-year-old, and at just his fifth race start, he led all the way to win the prestigious W.S. Cox Plate. A year later, he became the only horse to win the race as a three- and four-year-old.
So You Think was so good, eventually breeding giant Coolmore made an offer too big to refuse. The sale saw the horse taken from Bart’s stable in Melbourne and transferred to Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle in Ireland, in a move that stunned the nation. Today, he’s the most successful Australasian thoroughbred to grace the international stage.

But wherever he goes, he is always the horse from Down Under . . . the horse that Bart built.
