As good as he appears he’s only 3 and we know what happens to many of them once they leave the security of their age group

It does not deserve the airtime.

If he wasn't trained by Wallers he'd be in the CP.

We are all very cynical.

Both Waller and Weir are very conservative with the placement of young horses. 

Let's remember, Waller did not want to run Winx as a 4yo mare in her first Cox Plate.

So You Think was technically still a 2yo when he won his first Cox Plate.

Shamus Award.

Was So You Think a 3 year old for his first Cox Plate win??

I strongly believe Waller knows The Autumn Sun had a genuine chance to win, but only because of the weights.
At level weights, Winx smashes him.

There is no doubt The Autumn Sun would be skipping around that hometurn still full of run at that weight.

But hey, we will never know, because this is Australian racing now.
The place to avoid a challenge.

Special mention to Damien Olivers bizarre ride last year, deliberately smashing into the super talented 3 year old Royal Symphony, like as though he was paid to do it.
Was just more proof in my opinion, that the 3 year old Royal Symphony was a major threat to Winx last year at the weights.
That was one of the most bizarre rides of the modern era. Totally took the wind out of Royal Symphony.
You're either Einstein or Frankenstein in this game.

Every horse matures at a variable rate &  likewise, we'll all have differing opinions but the bottom line is that racing enthusiasts will always have another good horse to watch or back next week.
Owners however risk future racing opportunity & possible high veterinary expense by not erring on the side of caution.
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!
