Imported Australian racing champion So You Thinks next start will be the 2012 Tattersalls Gold Cup, an event he won in his second European start last year, and to celebrate what is likely to be the last campaign of his stellar career Punters Paradise is providing a free Tatts Gold Cup preview form with UK/AU start times, racing tips, the best available bookmaker bonuses and more.
The 2012 Tattersalls Gold Cup, also known as the Tatts Gold Cup, will jump off this Sunday the 27th of May on Irish 1000 Guineas Day.
Held at the prestigious Curragh race course in Kildare County Ireland, the Tatts Gold Cup is a 10.5 furlong (2112 metres) Group One flat race for thoroughbreds aged three years and up that offers prize money totaling £210,000 ($320,000 AUD).
Race three, out of eight exciting events on the card including the Irish 1000 Guineas, the Tatts Gold Cup will start at 2:35pm Sunday (UK), which is 11:35pm Sunday evening Sydney time.
Sold to the Coolmore Stud Group (2010) for an estimated forty-million, So You Think won the Tatts Gold Cup in his second start on European soil.
This time So You Think will be seeking a piece of Curragh history by becoming only the second horse to win the event in consecutive years, joining Yankee Gold (1976-77).
To accomplish this goal the Aidan O’Brien trained So You Think will be facing resistance from eight gallopers including stable-mates:
- Await The Dawn (118 rating), who’s fresh off a victory in the Hardwicke Stakes.
- St Nicholas Abbey (123 rating), winner of the Coronation Cup (UK) and Breeders Cup (US).
- Irish Derby winner Treasure Beach (116), Windsor Palace (104) who won the Mooresbridge Stakes and Robin Hood (97).
For information on So You Think’s remaining rivals Punters Paradise is providing a Tatts Gold Cup form preview, which also contains racing tips, the latest Curragh news, and bookmaker bonuses worth up to One-Thousand dollars on terms.

In total So You Think has won eight Group One races across two continents, five during his time in Australia and three in Europe.
During his last start, which was the $10million (USD) Dubai World Cup in March, he finished a competitive fourth while racing on a synthetic surface for the first time in his career.
