You Say So begins winning run for Bates stable

By July 25, 2011General

Last Thursday’s meeting at Northam (WA) gave freshman sire Due Sasso his second winner for the season and also started what was to be a successful run of winners for trainer Stan Bates.

A son of Mungrup Stud’s Group 3 winner Due Sasso (Scenic), So You Say started a $2.60 favourite and scored by 3/4 of a length in the maiden event ran over 1100m.

You Say So (Due Sasso – True Accolade) was purchased for $15,000 by Belmont Bloodstock from the Geisel Park draft at the 2010 Perth Magic Millions Yearling Sale.

The win was the beginning of a hot streak for trainer Stan Bates, who enjoyed a stakes double at Belmont on Saturday with Miss Tipsy Topsy (Spinning World) and All Friared up (Blackfriars) both saluting for the stable.
