A strong colt with tremendous presence. He has dealt with stable life very well and while he is a little boisterous at times he is genuine in his work and shows talent. So You Think is the leading third season sire and this fellow looks like adding to that record. He is due back into the stables in June for a preparation aimed at the Spring Carnival.
