$2.40 is on offer about the sale realising less than NZ$1 million, while punters who think spirited bidding will push the sale price higher than NZ$1.5 million can get odds of $4.50.
“There’s no doubt there’ll be massive interest in the champ’s full brother and we expect the sale price to be in the vicinity of one to one and a half million New Zealand Dollars,” sportsbet’s Haydn Lane said.
So You Think is expected to atone for his narrow loss in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes with a win in the upcoming Eclipse Stakes, and heads the market at $2.00.
“So You Think certainly had excuses in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes, but you would think Aidan O’Brien will have him trained to the minute this time around to silence any critics,” said Lane.
Leading jockey Kieren Fallon is the early $2.50 favourite to replace Ryan Moore as So You Think’s jockey in the Eclipse Stakes, ahead of recent Gold Cup-winning jockey Jamie Spencer at $3.50.
Result paid on sale price of High Chaparral-Triassic yearling at Karaka Yearling Sales, January 30-31, 2012. Sale price is in New Zealand Dollars. All bets refunded if the horse is passed in or is withdrawn from the sales.
