So You Think celebrated his 100th winner of the season on Friday and kept the winning groove going when his exciting colt Peltzer kept his unbeaten record intact with a commanding victory at Randwick.
Another fantastic win – his best yet!! As the #MillParkRaised 2yo son of @CoolmoreAus So You Think remains unbeaten going 3 for 3 for @GRyanRacing with a 4 length romp @atc_races.

“He was very good again today,” Gerald Ryan told Andrew Bensley.
“He’s won on good, soft and now heavy and he can lead or come off them, so he’s very adaptable.”
Ryan is now leaning towards spelling Peltzer in preference to a Queensland campaign given he has his eyes on spring success with a race like the Group I ATC Golden Rose (1400m) an obvious target.
A $260,000 Magic Millions purchase for Gerald Ryan Racing/David Raphael, Peltzer was offered by renowned South Australian nursery Mill Park.
Peltzer is a three-quarter brother-in-blood to stakes-winner So We Are and is the first winner from Miss Otto, a half-sister by Elusive Quality (USA) to Group II placed Miss With Attitude, the dam of stakes-winner Crown Towers.
Peltzer’s grand-dam is by Flying Spur, a sire that has worked previously with So You Think to produce Group I ATC Surround Stakes (1400m) winner Nakeeta Jane.
Mill Park sold the current yearling from Miss Otto, a colt by Street Boss (USA), at Magic Millions Adelaide this year for $75,000 to Kennewell Racing/Group 1 Bloodstock.
Miss Otto produced another filly by So You Think last year and is back in foal to Coolmore’s champion son of High Chaparral (IRE).
