So You Think wins Cox Plate again

8:35 am on 24 October 2010

So You Think has become the first horse to win back-to-back Cox Plates as a three- and four-year-old.

Trained by the master Bart Cummings, who has now won Australia's weight-for-age championship five times, So You Think added Saturday's race at Moonee Valley to his first Cox Plate last year in only his fifth start.

In second place was Zipping, whose rider Nick Hall puts So You Think up there with the legendary Phar Lap.

Bookies had him as a certainty to win his second Cox Plate, making the four-year-old the shortest-priced favourite in more than 40 years.
