    Needs more Shamus Award or Savabeel.

    It should only contain winners. Lonhro & Our Waverley Star out, Northerly & Surround in

    Surely trolling for putting a non winner of the race in there.
    I'd have Red Anchor in there.

    So You Think is a much bigger oversight than Northerly. Second only to Winx

    not when you include sunline. FFS they're directly comparable.

    Field is usually 14 IIRC

    In

    Northerly
    Saintly
    Super Impose
    So You Think
    Octagonal
    Strawberry Road

    Out

    Lonhro
    Our Waverley Star

    Would also be tempted to try and sneak Surround in there, dominant 3yo filly with 47 would create interest

    Better Loosen Up to give Winx a run for her money!

    1. Winx
    2. Makybe Diva
    3. Kingston Town
    4. Sunline
    5. Bonecrusher
    6. Northerly
    7. So You Think
    8. Might and Power
    9. Dulcify
    10. Better Loosen Up
    11. Fields Of Omagh
    12. Surround
    13. Octagonal
    14. Super Impose

    I think Strawberry Road is under rated because we didn't see him after he went OS, a lot less international coverage back then

    Yeah definitely get Northerly and SYT in there for starters. See if that makes any difference to the poll.

    So You Think would have almost certainly won 4 Cox Plates had he not left

    he probably would have won 1 more then retired to stud.
    anyone rate his stud career? seems to be a tiny bit disappointing to me although he gets a lot of winners.

    Lots of runners, reasonable output . Horses are generally very large. On the underperform side of expected but still very good. Will be a consistent sire of derby/oaks for winners for some time yet.

    Was surprised to see them knock 25k off the stud fee this year but they’re trying to keep his numbers up and stayers never fashionable.
