So You glitters in Gold

Sun, 27 May 2012

So You Think got his career back on track by easily defending his crown in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh.

The Australian superstar registered his first Group One victory in Europe in this mile-and-a half prize 12 months ago, but he was returning to Ireland this weekend having suffered four consecutive defeats, including when a slightly disappointing fourth in the Dubai World Cup on his first start of 2012.

Aidan O'Brien's six-year-old was sent off the 2-11 favourite and the result was never in any doubt once Joseph O'Brien eased him past pacemaker Robin Hood rounding the home turn. Famous Name gave chase, but he was not in the same league as So You Think, who sauntered home by six lengths.
