Trained at Kembla by Kerry Parker, Think It Over has been gradually brought to peak fitness this preparation and under a great ride from barrier one by Glen Boss was able to forge clear and win by a length and a quarter over Group I winning mare Nettoyer.


Think It Over started his career with John Sargent, but has blossomed with maturity and now has the overall record of four wins and seven placings from 18 starts with prizemoney in excess of $540,000.

Think It Over is the best of four winners from well bred unraced Zabeel mare Personal Service, a half-sister to Group I winners Universal Prince and Universal Queen.

Personal Service has a yearling colt by Exosphere and was covered again by him last spring.

Think It Over is the 28th stakes-winner for So You Think, who stands at Coolmore this spring at a fee of $38,500.
