Son of champion sire, So You Think, “Think it Over” (from Personal Service) has taken home the spoils after winning the Group 3 Craven Plate over 2000 metres at Royal Randwick on 17 October 2020 under the guidance of legendary jockey, Glen Boss. “Sid” jumped from barrier 1 and carried the weight of 59 kilograms for the race.
Sid jumped cleanly from the gates. There was certainly some early competition as to who wanted to take up the lead, with about 5 horses all rallying for the front-running position. Eventually, Glen was able to get Sid in a nice and handy position being 2nd on the rails. He looked to travel superbly for Glen and seemed to be switching off nicely and getting into a lovely rhythm.
Upon the turn, it looked like a not so good position for him to be – right up against the rails with horses all around him. However, Sid showed great fight and, when asked from Glen, squeezed himself through the small gap inside the leader. There was a wall of horses chasing, but, they weren’t able to catch Sid, and he won by about a length to Nettoyer in 2nd position and Vanna Girl in 3rd.
This was such a great win and us all at the stables are over the moon with Sid’s success in this race. He just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and its so great to watch how hard he tries each time he steps onto a racetrack.
Big thank you to my loyal, hard working staff, who are equally as chuffed as I am.
Finally, thank you to Sid’s owners. They have been great supporters of the stables and I am extremely happy for you guys.
