G2 CUP QUINELLA FOR SO YOU THINK

So You Think

Irish bred stayer Knights Order (6g So You Think x Lamanka Lass by Woodman) led home a quinella for his sire in the Group II Brisbane Cup (3200m) at Eagle Fam on Saturday when leading all the way to defeat Carif (5g So You Think x Norzita, by Thorn Park).

Rock hard fit and running on a seven day back up after winning the Listed ATC Winter Cup at Rosehill last Saturday, the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Knights Order showed serious staying talent when powering away from Carif to win by a commanding four and three-quarter lengths.

"Obviously, he was a query at the two miles but Gai said to just ride him like normal and if he doesn't run it out, he doesn't run it out, but don't try and change too much with him," said winning rider Tim Clark.

"I just allowed him to get him into that nice rhythm and he bowled along.

"It was probably a bit of a masterstroke by Gai and Adrian to take the blinkers off him. It just allowed him to relax that little bit better and he ran that out really strongly."

With seven wins from 17 starts and over $467,000 in prizemoney, Knight’s Order can now have a short break before preparing for a spring campaign.

"He has certainly gone to a new level this campaign," Bott said.

"We will give him a short freshen up and really hone-in now and see what we can come up with for the spring because I really feel he's a worthy contender and (he has) made that leap."

Purchased for 250,000 guineas by from the 2018 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale by McKeever Bloodstock/ Gai Waterhouse Racing, Knights Order is a half-brother to Group II winner Dark Islander from good producer Lamanka Lass, who has left nine winners from 11 foals to race.

Knight’s Order is one of 12 Australian stakes-winners this season for So You Think with those stakes-winners ranging in distance from 1200 to 3200m demonstrating rare versatility that very few stallions can deliver.
