Impressive Maiden Winner Sold by Widden

 In 2017

Five length maiden winner Critical Thinking gave notice of better things to come when bolting in at Seymour on Thursday and may ultimately become a fifth stakes-winner for a celebrated producer.

Criticalthinking_400Three year-old So You Think gelding Critical Thinking was unplaced on debut last October but has come back a bigger, stronger horse this time around.

Second at his first run back last month, Critical Thinking was a fitter horse at his second run back from a spell and blew away his rivals when strolling home to win the 1200 metre maiden as he pleased for the Brent Stanley stable.

A $70,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Widden Stud draft for Cloud 9 Thoroughbreds, Critical Thinking is a half-brother to Group II winners Sportsman and Prisoner of Love, Group III winner Hoystar and stakes-winner King of Prussia as well as the dam of Group I winner Vanbrugh.

Foaled and raised at Widden for his breeder Mr Leung, he is the 11th winner from terrific producer Professionelle and is her final foal as she died in 2015.
