Heffernan To Ride So You Think In UK Gr1 Eclipse

Friday, 1st July 2011

Seamus Heffernan “has been confirmed as the jockey who will partner” UK Gr1 Coral-Eclipse Stakes favourite & 6-time Gr1-winning 4YO entire So You Think (High Chaparral-Triassic, by Tights) in tomorrow’s “showpiece at Sandown” in England, reported racingpost.com. Heffernan replaces Ryan Moore “who has ridden the ex-Australian superstar in his last 2 starts, but is set to be on Workforce for Sir Michael Stoute in the Eclipse”. Following the overnight withdrawal of his Aidan O’Brien-trained stable-mates Cape Blanco, Jan Vermeer & Alexander Pope (meaning he will race without a stable pace-maker), So You Think (odds-on favourite with all British bookmakers) will now face 4 opponents in the Eclipse (10.5 furlongs): Workforce (winner of last year’s Gr1 English Derby & Gr1 French Arc de Triomphe), Snow Fairy (who won 4 Gr1 races during 2010), Sri Putra (last year’s runner-up) & Confront.
