Breeder Mike Moran is riding the wave of success with So You Think and has welcomed a three-quarter brother to the triple Group One winner at New Zealand’s Windsor Park Stud.

Moran was at Caulfield on Saturday to watch So You Think notch his third Group One win in the Yalumba Stakes.

“I flew back by myself, I didn’t need a plane,” Moran told New Zealand Thoroughbred Marketing.

The Bart Cummings-trained So You Think was purchased from Windsor Park Stud’s 2008 draft for $110,000 by Duncan Ramage on behalf of Dato Tan Chin Nam and Tunku Ahmad Yahaya.

“It was just an unbelievable day,” Moran said.

“Early on Saturday morning I got a text from Roddy (Rodney Schick) to say So You Think’s half-sister La Souvenir was foaling.

“I got down there ten minutes later, but by the time I got there, the colt foal was on the ground.”

The colt is by So You Think’s sire High Chaparral.

“He’s thrown very much to High Chaparral’s sire, there is a lot of Sadler’s Wells about him,” Moran said.

“It was just great timing really.

“I was able to head off to the airport having seen him before watching So You Think race.”
