I Thought So Turns The Corner

By Brad Gray
At Royal Randwick

It was supposed to be a race in two between Jungle Edge and Shiraz but somebody forgot to tell I Thought So.

The four-year-old has been a frustrating horse throughout his career as he clearly possesses the talent, but before Saturday had won just two of his 16 starts. The Snowden’s have only had the son of So You Think for three starts, having formerly been trained by David Pfeiffer, but co-trainer Paul Snowden certainly didn’t hide his admiration for the horse despite admitting the stable were still working him out.

“I really think he could win anything we set him for,” Snowden gushed, after I Thought So reeled in the gallant Jungle Edge.

“He is a horse that needs to have a little bit of luck go his way and when they don’t he falls short. I feel he is genuine. He has definitely shown to us that he is trying.

“He is slowly starting to turn the corner and we just lost sight of the bunny last start, getting well out of his ground but today off the good draw we were able to butter up right behind the speed and he let down really well.

“He has always had the talent but we think stepping out to 1400m he could put in an even further polished performance.”

Glyn Schofield rode the perfect race on I Thought So in the Elite Haulage Handicap (1200m) at Royal Randwick, tagging Jungle Edge in the run before slipping up on his inside in the straight.

“He gave me everything,” said Schofield, “I was travelling that well I was contemplating following the leader a little bit further. He ran the race strongly, he ran it true.”

“Soft barrier, soft track. He likes both, got the cart into the race and he found the finish.”

Jungle Edge was easy in betting with TAB to start $3.80 and the evergreen mudlark, despite rolling along at a good clip, looked to have his chance after controlling the race from the outset.

“It was a really good effort and the winner carried a lot less weight but it was a good honest run,” said Jungle Edge’s rider Georgina Cartwright.
