Think It Over won the $1,000,000 Group 2, Yulong Hill Stakes at Randwick over 2000 metres on 2 October 2021.
“Sid” started as the short price favourite (about $1.75) and was expected to win easily. It’s not ever easy being a short price favourite, but Sid did not disappoint.
Sid had jockey Nash Rawiller on board, carried 59 kilograms and jumped from barrier 4.
Sid jumped beautifully, but was cast out three wide in the initial stages. Nash rolled Sid forward to take up a position next to the leader who was enjoying a rails run.
The field strung out into two groups. Sid looked to travel so nicely for Nash on the outside of the leader and Nash looked to have a whole lot of horse under him as they started their run down the Randwick straight.
Sid had to catch Shared Ambition and grinded him down to catch him right before the post. What a will to win he has!
Once again, congratulations to Sid’s wonderful owners. He has turned into such a special horse and we can’t wait to see what more is to unfold with him.
Thank you also to Nash for another great ride and to my staff for all their wonderful work and also thank you to Bradley Photographers for the picture.
