Whobegotyou (19 August 2005 - 12 September 2012) was an Australian-bred Thoroughbred racehorse. The horse won nine races, including the Group One (G1) Caulfield Guineas and Yalumba Stakes for $3,115,450 in prize money.

He was a chestnut gelding that was foaled on 19 August 2005 and was bred by Lockyer Thoroughbreds. Whobegotyou was by the outstanding racehorse and sire, Street Cry (IRE), who won the Dubai World Cup and is the sire of winners of more than $51 million including, Shocking, Street Sense and Zenyatta.[1] His dam, Temple of Peace was by Carnegie, who won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and is the dam of winners of more than $50 million. She was imported into Australia in 2002 and is the dam of three named other horses, by different sires, which have not started in any black type races. Whobegotyou is inbred to Mr. Prospector in the third and fourth generation (3m x 4f) and twice to Riverman in the fourth generation (4m x 4f) of his pedigree.[2]

Whobegotyou was passed in at the Inglis Classic yearling sale during February 2007 in Sydney and was later sold for $19,500 to Laurence E. Eales of Victoria. He possessed a good temperament, but was soon becoming heavy and starting to develop a crest. It was then decided to geld him before sending him to Mark Kavanagh, for training.[3]

Whobegotyou died suddenly at a property near Sunbury in September 2012, aged seven.[4]

Racing career[edit]

Michael Rodd rode Whobegotyou in all of his wins except for two.

Two year old season: 2007-2008[edit]

Whobegotyou won his first start, a maiden race at Geelong on 23 May 2008. He next started in and won a 1,200 metre two-year-old handicap, with Nicholas Ryan riding him, at Moonee Valley on 21 June 2008 before having a 10 week let-up.

Three year old season: 2008-2009[edit]

This season Whobegotyou had 11 starts for wins in the G2 Bill Stutt Stakes contested over 1,600 metres; G1 Caulfield Guineas over 1,600 m and G2 AAMI Vase over 2,040 metres before finishing in third place in the Victoria Derby. He was then spelled for 18 weeks before resuming racing in March with five more starts to finish the season for two seconds and then a third place in the Doncaster Handicap. At his next start he was unplaced in the G1 AJC Queen Elizabeth Stakes before being sent for a 16-week spell.

Four year old season: 2009-2010[edit]

Whobegotyou had eight starts for wins in the G2 weight for age (w.f.a.) Feehan Stakes, also known as the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes when ridden by Damien Oliver and the G1 MRC Yalumba Stakes over 2,000. After starting as the $2.80 favourite in the Cox Plate he finished sixth and was found to be sore in his hindquarters and back before being spelled for 31 weeks. He resumed racing on 29 May 2010 with a start in the G1 Doomben 10,000 in which he finished second to the classy mare, Hot Danish. After an unplaced run in the G1 Stradbroke Handicap after being galloped on and injured he was given a let-up of 11 weeks.[5]

Five year old season: 2010-2011[edit]

At his first start in the new season Whobegotyou finished second, by a half length, to So You Think in the G2 Memsie Stakes over 1,400 metres. On 11 September 2010 he won his second Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes defeating Typhoon Tracy by two lengths. Whobegotyou then placed third on 9 October 2010 in the Yalumba Stakes which So You Think won from Alcopop. He again placed third in the Cox Plate behind the winner, So You Think and Zipping who was third.[6]

Six year old season: 2011-2012[edit]

Whobegotyou began his six-year-old campaign by winning the P B Lawrence Stakes by a neck from the Australasian Oaks winner Lights of Heaven.

He had a total of 27 starts for 9 wins, 10 seconds and 3 thirds, with prize money of A$3,115,450.[7]
