Ballydoyle, the racing arm of Coolmore, confirmed Oct. 24 that So You Think has been pre-entered in the Nov. 5 Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) at Churchill Downs.
Annemarie O’Brien, the wife of trainer Aidan O’Brien, stated via her Twitter account that the New Zealand-bred son of High Chapparal, who most recently finished second in the Oct. 15 Qipco Champion Stakes (Eng-I), was one of 12 Ballydoyle runners pre-entered in Breeders' Cup races. So You Think has eight group I victories to his credit, three of which came in 2011. He was named a champion in Australia at 3.
